    MADISON-County Deer Advisory Councils in all Wisconsin counties will meet beginning March 14 to review deer herd information and develop preliminary recommendations regarding antlerless harvest quotas, antlerless permit levels and other season options for the 2016 deer hunting season.

    This year, councils will have the option to offer antlerless-only seasons, provide metro subunit-specific permits, and restrict junior antlerless permit use in buck-only counties. Each CDAC meeting is open to the public - a meeting schedule is available at, keyword "p>
