The application period for vacant County Deer Advisory Council seats is open through Jan. 15.

CDAC members represent areas of expertise in agriculture, forestry, tourism, transportation, hunting, land management and local government. Individuals with experience in one of these areas are encouraged to apply for open CDAC seats. Council members meet at least twice annually to review deer management data, gather public input from citizens and provide recommendations to the Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Board regarding deer population objectives and antlerless harvest in their county.

Both hunters and non-hunters are encouraged to apply for vacancies, but applicants must have experience or involvement with the seat (agriculture, forestry, etc.) for which they are applying.
