Door County deer hunters will get one less opportunity to fill their freezers with venison. A special antlerless deer hunt designed to reduce the herd was held this past January. After the harvest was tallied the Door County Deer Advisory Council decided against a similar hunt in January 2020. Council Member Dick Baudhuin says the decision came down to numbers and potential conflicts with other hunters.
Door County has one of the highest deer populations in Wisconsin. Efforts have been ongoing to reduce the herd.
