UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The state D-N-R is asking people to report any dead deer they find.

The cold-and-snowy winter is expected to take its toll on the deer herd, just like it did a year ago when winter conditions dragged into May. It resulted in lower deer populations, and hunters were given their fewest permits for antlerless deer since the 1990's. Now, the D-N-R is hoping people will report dead animals, so they can get better estimate of the deer population. They'll use those numbers to determine hunter permits for does this fall.

The D-N-R says it anticipates either no antlerless permits -- or extremely-limited permits -- in northern Wisconsin where doe populations have been small for some time.
