This Sunday on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek was joined by Jeff Pritzl, a regional wildlife biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources , and talked about the 2012 deer hunting season.
Overall, the DNR reports the number of hunters was up, as was the number of deer killed. Statewide, the number of bucks harvested was also up.
Pritzl explained what the numbers mean to hunters and to next year's hunt.
"We're on a three year growth curve of the deer population," Pritzl said. "This is indicating a deer population that has or is ready to really erupt because of relatively conservative antler less harvests we've had in the last couple of years."
Pritzl also offered some thoughts on the report issued by the Whitetail Deer Trustee earlier this year and how the recommendations from that report will be implemented.
