MADISON (AP) — The state Department of Natural Resources plans to ask its board this month to prohibit hunters from killing antlerless deer in 13 counties in effort to regrow the herd.

The DNR’s plan calls for no antlerless quotas in Douglas, Bayfield, Sawyer, Ashland, Iron, Vilas, Price, Oneida, Langlade, Forest, Florence and Racine counties as well a portion of Jackson County.

DNR officials say the herd across most of the northern forests remains well below desired levels. They say this past winter was mild but the herd needs more time to regrow itself.

The DNR’s board is expected to consider the plan at a May 27 meeting in Madison.

    I cover a lot of road. I hardly see any anymore. You need to ban antlerless statewide. The heard still hasn’t recovered since 2008 when everybody up there was eating deer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day just to keep from starving to death!.

    Destructive colorless people responsible for eradicating normal populations of deer. Why is it you people are at the center of every destructive and barbaric event? The answer, you people are naturally destructive, always have been.
