MADISON – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a virtual open house for the public to learn about its Deer Management Assistance Program.

DMAP is a cooperative effort between the DNR, landowners and hunters to provide habitat and deer herd management assistance to those interested in managing their property for wildlife.
The DNR’s wildlife and forestry staff assist landowners with management practices that consider the ecological and social impacts that white-tailed deer have on the landscape.
In return, DMAP cooperators can choose to share habitat information, collect biological data and participate in DMAP workshops.
This one-on-one relationship encourages communication and cooperation and makes DMAP a flexible and effective deer management program for private and public lands alike.
Since 2014, DMAP has helped Wisconsin landowners manage habitat for deer and other wildlife.
Persons who enroll 160 acres or more in DMAP by March 1, 2022, will be eligible for a site visit by a DNR wildlife biologist and forester, as well as a customized management plan tailored to their property goals.
Landowners with properties of any size may enroll in DMAP at any time.
Those with less than 160 acres may combine acreage with neighboring landowners to reach the 160-acre requirement and enroll as a DMAP cooperative.
