Eventually this topic will discuss both the natural history of deer in Wisconsin as well as the issue of deer herd management, including the issues relating to hunting deer.
A classic document on the question of deer herd management is the Minority Report of the Citizens' Deer Committee to Wisconsin Conservation Commission by a committee chaired by No topic [leopold aldo leopold] in which an antlerless hunt deer hunt is recommended. It also provides an estimate, challenged, of the deer population of Wisconsin at half a million. A recent DNR report cited this as follows:
"Estimating the number of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in Wisconsin has been controversial for many years. In 1943 Aldo Leopold estimated the Wisconsin deer population at 500,000 animals. His estimate was questioned by Roy Jorgensen, editor of "Save Wisconsin's Deer" who instead suggested there were 200,000 deer." An Evaluation of the SAK Model.
