The Jackson County Deer Advisory Council will meet to discuss preliminary antlerless quota recommendations, permit levels and season structure options for the 2017 deer hunting season.
The March 22, 2017 meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Jackson Electric Cooperative Conference Room. The public is encouraged to attend and provide written or verbal feedback.
The council will continue to work toward its population objective recommendation of increasing the Forest Zone and maintaining the Farmland Zone deer populations in Jackson County. Population objectives set in 2014 continue to guide deer management decisions for a three-year period.
Antlerless harvest quotas, permit levels and season structure options will help achieve population objectives and will help determine the number of antlerless deer carcass tags available in Jackson County during the 2017 deer hunting season.
