Wisconsin Officially Suspends Earn-A-Buck
By Dave Hurteau
From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
Based on a DNR recommendation, the Natural Resources Board approved a 2009 deer hunting framework with a one-year moratorium on Earn-A-Buck regulations in most of the state.
The season will feature 62 units with a regular-season framework (no October gun hunt for antlerless deer) and 50 units with Herd Control regulations (including a four-day October gun hunt for antlerless deer). Only the Chronic Wasting Disease management zone will have Earn-A-Buck regulations.
The 2009 season framework was developed in response to unprecedented feedback from hunters, both at meetings and via an on-line survey.
