WILDLIFE DAMAGE ABATEMENT AND CLAIMS PROGRAM
Wisconsin has a program that assists farmers when wildlife damages their agricultural crops. The Wildlife Damage Abatement and Claims Program (WDACP) provides damage prevention assistance and partial compensation to farmers when wild deer, elk, bear, geese and turkeys damage their agricultural crops. Wildlife managers issue agricultural damage shooting permits to farmers for removal of deer – and occasionally bear, geese and turkeys – that cause damage. WI DNR
La Crosse County Wildlife Abatement committee meets twice a year, once in February and once in October.
