If you think you're seeing more deer in Door and Kewaunee County fields and woodlands, it's not just your imagination. The herd is growing despite increased bag limits during hunting seasons. Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Biologist Josh Martinez says weather conditions made it easier for deer to survive the winter. He adds that's also a cause for concern for farms and forests.
To help thin the herd in Door and Kewaunee Counties the state is recommending a “holiday” firearms antlerless deer hunt for 2019. That would range from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day. The DNR website is currently taking public comment on that deer hunt proposal through April 11th.
