MADISON, Wis. (WTAQ) - Department of Natural Resources Secretary Matt Frank in a letter Friday says the DNR has tabled the proposal for a 16 day gun deer hunt in 2010. Frank indicated in the letter, "Given the preliminary harvest numbers for the 2009 nine day hunt, we believe it is appropriate to postpone consideration of alternative herd control measures". The DNR planned to present the plan for the longer gun season at the Natural Resources Board meeting on December 8th. Preliminary numbers from the recently concluded gun deer season had hunter registering 195,647 deer, the fewest total in 27 years.
