Deer Management Assistance Program Sign-up Deadline is March 1
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/08/2018
Landowners, hunters and land managers with properties of 160 acres or more are encouraged to enroll in the Deer Management Assistance Program prior to March 1.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says applications submitted prior to this deadline will receive priority access to the program's perks, including a site visit in 2018 by a professional wildlife biologist and forester.
DMAP provides informational resources and professional assistance regarding wildlife habitat management techniques for properties of any size to help participants improve habitat for wildlife.
Neighboring landowners with properties within one-half mile are encouraged to enroll as a group cooperative. Landowners in a DMAP cooperative with a combined acreage of 160 acres or more are eligible to receive a site visit and management
plan. Group cooperatives also provide an opportunity to monitor local wildlife populations and share costs and equipment on habitat projects to benefit deer and other wildlife over a greater area.
