Deer czar doesn’t know state’s tradition
By Kurt Krueger

THAT OLD adage about throwing the baby out with the bathwater comes to mind as I read the deer management recommendations of Texan James Kroll, the alleged deer czar hired by Gov. Scott Walker to assess Wisconsin’s program.

He suggests that we abolish local deer population goals and that the number of deer management units (DMUs) be significantly reduced by consolidating units, both of which have some merit if done right.
He also suggests that the state turn its annual antlerless harvest goals into a three- to five-year process — not based on science, but to get away from negative media coverage.
