How powerful is the DNR/Government regarding this issue and what are they willing to do about it?
These two powers are totally different. The Legislators are doing something about it.....10:00 on April 15th at the Capital. What they are going to do about it? Sorry, I can't tell you that BUT you should get down to the hearing and show your support. If you show your support, you will be quite happy with the results.
EAB and T-zone are very effective tools. Effective in managing the hunter not herd. You must realize, you must manage the herd not let the DNR manage you.
"I congratulate the landowners for taking matters into there own hands."
So can you, see you at the April 15th hearing.
This reminds me of what happened in 1996 and bear hunting. If you didn't know, they were going to eliminate bear hunting. This caused an uproar with the bear hunters, they organized and now have much power in bear management in the State.
This is our time to shine, stop sitting on your hands, get out of the forums and out on the streets. Deer hunters must unify, regardless of what organization. This is a very exciting time for the WI deer hunters but you must become active.
