Question 47 – in this year’s Spring Fish and Game Hearings Questionnaire reads: Many Wisconsin deer hunters have the perception that because publicly accessible hunting areas in our state often have increased hunting pressure compared to most private lands, deer populations in those areas have been over-harvested in an attempt to manage broader deer populations that have been sheltered on private land. Data collected from hunters’ registration stubs for several years indicate that in many units the percentage of deer harvested on public land in the unit is disproportionately high when compared to the percentage of public land within the unit. This suggest that more of the available antlerless permits within each Deer Management Unit (DMU) are being filled on lands easily accessible by the public and not necessarily to the areas of greatest deer density.

One idea that is being considered is having separate public and private land antlerless permits in all DMUs with antlerless quotas. One concern with this option is that it differentiates between those hunters who own or have access to private land and those who do not. Some would say it divides the two “classes” of hunters and privatizes a portion of the deer herd.
