Natural Resources Board approves conditions of antlerless permit issuance through Deer Management Assistance Program

Poll Pic S930

HAYWARD, Wis. Conditions under which antlerless tags are issued through the Deer Management Assistance Program, recommended by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, were approved Aug. 13 by the Natural Resources Board.

“The approval of these recommendations will provide greater flexibility to DMAP participants to manage habitat on their land for the benefit of wildlife through antlerless deer harvest,” said DMAP Coordinator Bob Nack.

DMAP cooperators enrolled in level two or three will be eligible to purchase reduced-price antlerless tags, following a property visit from DNR staff and a discussion of both short and long-term property goals with landowners. Landowners and department staff will discuss deer harvest strategies aimed at finding a balance between providing for quality wildlife habitat and continuing to ensure an enjoyable deer hunting experience.

DMAP cooperators who purchase antlerless tags in 2014 may transfer these tags to others wishing to hunt on the enrolled property. It is important to note that these tags may only be used within the enrolled DMAP property. Antlerless tags may not be transferred to hunters for more than the $6 face-value price.

DMAP is one of several new programs and changes resulting from a two-year review of Wisconsin’s deer management program. DMAP will give landowners the tools and technical assistance needed to manage their property for deer and other wildlife. The program encourages sound land stewardship practices on private and public land, provides landowners with educational and networking opportunities, and helps improve relationships between landowners, hunters and DNR.

Hunters are encouraged to check out the frequently asked questions page for more information.

Deer Management Assistance Program


The Wisconsin Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) provides habitat and herd management assistance to landowners interested in managing their property for wildlife. The department will assist landowners with the implementation of forest regeneration and deer hunting practices that will emphasize property goals while considering the ecological and social impacts of white-tailed deer.

DMAP core values

The program is a cooperative effort between the DNR, landowners and hunters and is grounded on many core values.

White-tailed deer are an important wildlife species in Wisconsin and should be held in high esteem.

All wildlife is held in the public trust for the benefit of all people.

Habitat and population management practices for deer will benefit forest plant communities and additional wildlife species.

DMAP program information

Wildlife and forestry professionals will work with landowners to develop consistent and achievable goals for the property. In return, cooperators will share information, collect biological data and participate in annual meetings and workshops. This one-on-one relationship, stressing communication and cooperation, makes DMAP a flexible and effective deer management program.
