Commentary: Understanding what’s happening with the northern Wisconsin deer herd

The author details the drastic changes to the whitetail and wolf populations over the years on a closely-monitored property north of Ladysmith, Wis. (Stock photo)

In 1992 we started to buy land 20 miles north of Ladysmith, Wis. By 2000 we had about 3,000 acres in one block and over that time we added 120 acres of food plots. We planted every crop imaginable, but our staples were soybeans, corn, alfalfa, kale and clover.
We had a live camera system (32 cameras) installed where we could watch many of the fields and crossings and they recorded video on motion.
