Waupaca County’s Deer Advisory Council is recommending one change to the county’s deer herd management strategy. The council last night voted to keep the county’s deer management unit as it is, instead of going back to the 2013 deer management units, such as 62 A and B, 65 B, 63 A, and 66. But the council did vote, 3 to 2, to try and decrease the size of the deer herd in the county. That after DNR foresters presented evidence of deer browsing inhibiting the growth of various species of trees in the county’s forested areas. Waupaca County has consistently been at or near the top in the state in terms of total deer harvest over the past decade. But DNR wildlife manager Jacob Fries says the county still has a total deer density of about 52 deer per total square mile, and up to 98 deer per square mile in the prime deer habitat areas.
