Note: The proposed emergency rule regarding transportation of deer carcasses out of CWD-affected counties will not go into effect this year. Regulations regarding the transportation of deer carcasses in 2018 are the same as they were in 2017.

Starting this year, the WI DNR has rolled out a new deer metric system. This system will allow you to easily and efficiently find deer metric information for the county of your choice. The most up-to-date information is provided on deer harvest figures, population trends, deer impacts on agriculture and forest resources, deer herd health and deer hunter dynamics.
