DNR, landowners team up to promote wildlife habitat

TOWN OF YORK - A cheaper doe tag is a nice bonus, but Paul Ovadal said the real perk of being a part of the Department of Natural Resource's Deer Management Assistance Program is learning how to increase the habitat to get more deer on his land in the northwest corner of Green County. Ovadal said his farm hosts typically about 10 to 15 deer, and with the help of the DNR wildlife biologists who semi-annually visit his land, he is trying to create the best habitat for deer. "I've planted a lot of shrubs and trees and a couple hundred acres of native grasses," Ovadal said.
