Loggers weigh in on northern Wisconsin deer herd past and present

“The whole northern part of (Wisconsin) doesn’t have the deer population they want,” said Henry Schienebeck, executive director of the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association. (Stock photo)

They say if you want to know where the deer are, ask a logger. After all, the men and women who cut and haul timber for a living are in the woods every day of the year.
If you ask Terry Peters, he’s going to tell you he’s not quite sure where to find deer in northern Wisconsin.
“Last year, after 60 years, was the first year I never saw a nose, an ear, a side, a tine or a rump while I was hunting,” Peters said. “I’m disheartened. I don’t feel good.”
Meanwhile, Henry Schienebeck, executive director of the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association, said while walking timber sales over the past winter he “hardly saw a track.”
