DNR Wants Your Input On Elk Management

The Wisconsin DNR is seeking public input on updates to the state’s Elk Management Plan now through April 20.

Updates to the 2024-2034 Elk Management Plan include changes based on recommendations from the Natural Resources Board, Wisconsin Elk Advisory Committee, and feedback from private landowners in the elk management zones.

Read the plan: https://widnr.widen.net/s/7q6scfhdnq/draft-2024-2034-elk-management-plan

The public can review the proposed plan and share their thoughts via the online comment tool: https://www.research.net/r/2024_Elk_Public_Input

The DNR will review and consider feedback submitted during the comment period while preparing the final draft.

Once finalized later this year, the proposed plan will be presented to the Natural Resources Board for approval.

DNR To Host Open Houses On Elk Management Plan

The DNR will host open houses on the proposed management plan for the public to learn about the direction of elk management and the changes made since the last public involvement period. Attendees can ask DNR staff questions about plan updates.

An open house will take place near each elk management zone. Find an open house near you: https://dnr.wisconsin.gov/topic/wildlifehabitat/elk#:~:text=This%20range%2C%20called%20the%20Clam,elk%20and%20other%20wildlife%20use.
