    MADISON - County Deer Advisory Councils will meet for the first time in 2015 beginning March 16 to form preliminary antlerless deer harvest quota and permit level recommendations for the 2015 deer season.

    Each CDAC will help determine antlerless tag availability for the 2015 deer hunting season through preliminary antlerless quota recommendations. Antlerless quotas will be reviewed and adjusted annually.

    Councils use a number of resources, including deer population data, harvest data, public input and other information to help direct deer management in their county.

    The public is encouraged to attend their county's council meeting and provide input. Those unable to attend can send feedback directly to CDAC members in their county. For contact and meeting information, visit and search keyword "CDAC" or email [email protected] An online public comment period will begin in April.
