DEVELOPING: Northwoods hunter taking action to preserve deer hunt

Posted:

RHINELANDER (WAOW)--A Tomahawk hunter is taking action after what he calls a dismal hunt.

Kevin Grenzer says that the deer population is underestimated and many hunters feel the population itself is diminishing from increasing black bears and wolf populations. Grenzer also says that the Department of Natural Resources is over issuing antlerless deer permits.

In response, Grenzer has set up a P.O. Box where hunters can send in letters documenting their hunting experience or unused tags. He hopes to present the letters and tags to the DNR office in Madison.

Newsline 9's Heather Sawaski is in Rhinelander today talking to Grenzer and DNR officials to discuss the problem. She'll have more on Newsline 9 at 5, 6 and 10.
