For those of you that did not watch the August NRC meeting, at the July meeting, the NRC requested the Department to come back with their antlerless harvest goals to keep APR's in a CWD zone. Well, rather than come back with a hard number, they made it a ratio of does:bucks...that being 1.1:1. Now, for all of you mathematicians out there, the DNR expects that there will be a drop in buck harvest this year due to APR's. They expect the antlered harvest to be somewhere near 7900. That being said, the threshold for antlerless harvest would have to be ~8690. In the 2018 hunting season, for those three counties, the antlerless harvest was 10,108. So, for a regulation that is supposed to increase the antlerless harvest, the threshold being set is actually somewhere in the neighborhood of a 15% decrease. That's right, they set the standard for success at a negative. We, of course, expect an increase in antlerless harvest under APR's, but to set the bar below last year's harvest is simply unexplainable.
