Future Deer Hunts Much Like This One?
For those hoping for a better deer season in La Crosse county this year, a disappointment. Preliminary numbers show this year's harvest during the nine day gun deer season was lower than last year. With the La Crosse county Conservation Alliance, Marc Schultz refuses to publicly judge the DNR on its deer management. But he will say that more local input on deer seasons would be welcomed. Not only from local wildlife managers but from local sportsmen as well. Schultz also suggests the current deer populations may be the new normal for the area from now on.
