NRB approves conditions of antlerless permit issuance through DMAP

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," DMAP Coordinator Bob Nack said.

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. The FAQ feature provides brief responses to a wide variety of deer hunting questions, ranging from deer management unit boundaries to antlerless permits.
