Wis. DNR hires new deer, elk researcher

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin wildlife officials have named a new deer and elk researcher.

Dan Storm will work on Department of Natural Resources projects studying buck and fawn mortality and the nutritional condition of car-killed deer. He'll also serve as a consultant on deer and elk issues for DNR managers.

Storm joined the agency last year as a researcher and studied deer-vehicle collisions and furbearer monitoring. DNR Wildlife and Forestry Section Chief Karl Martin says the agency moved Storm into the deer and elk position on June 2 after his predecessor, Jared Duquette, resigned.
