The Upper Peninsula Deer Advisory Team (UPDAT) will meet for the fifth time on Saturday, June 8 in Munising.
“We will be sharing the results of the 2012 hunter harvest survey and finalizing the UPDAT’s buck management recommendation,” said DNR Deer Program biologist Ashley Autenrieth.
Deer advisory teams were established to provide direct input to the Wildlife Division based on three regions of the state (Upper Peninsula, Northern Lower Peninsula and Southern Lower Peninsula). Each region has a deer advisory team made up of members with a direct connection to issues in the region, either as private individuals affected by deer hunting and management or as representatives of organizations with members or constituents in the region. Team members help to communicate with the public and key partners and organizations.
On June 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) at the Holiday Inn Express in Munising, located at E8890 M-28, the UPDAT will meet to discuss the following topics:
- Buck management in the Upper Peninsula
- 2012 hunter harvest survey
- Proposed hunting license package
The public is always encouraged to attend these biannual meetings as observers; however, the discussions during the meetings are for the UPDAT members. If time permits, questions or comments from the public will be taken at the end.
