SOUTHERN WISCONSIN (Ben Caxton) — The Department of Natural Resources is letting hunters know it’s okay to shoot deer that are wearing radio tracking collars. Deer Research Scientist Daniel Storm says those collars are there as part of a research project in southern Wisconsin that tracks how deer die. “It’s very similar to if you’re a bird hunter or duck hunter, and you harvest a banded duck. There’s a number on there, and you call it. So it’s a very similar concept.” They’re hoping that information will put together a better picture on deer mortality, whether from hunting, predation, or even chronic wasting disease.
