Wisconsin DNR Looking for Ways to Learn More About CWD

How about receiving $200 or an all terrain vehicle for hunting deer?

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is exploring ways to increase deer kill in chronic wasting disease areas.

The DNR wasn't happy with recent deer herd estimates. They show a 20 percent decrease in the CWD hot zones and ten percent drop in the larger, surrounding management areas.

Last fall, Wisconsin began offering bounties to hunters who killed diseased deer in the management area. The hunter and the landowner split $400.
