Legislation signed in time for deer season
The Governor recently signed into law Senate Bill 75 (SB 75), which eliminates the Earn-a-Buck program.  This repeal will be in effect for the fall hunting season.  Now hunters will no longer be required to kill an antlerless dear before killing their first antlered deer.  The bill still allows for the DNR to use an array of tools for herd control while making a practical change in response to hunter concerns.
