Deer hunters may want to plan on spending an hour in front of the television from 8 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 9 when Milwaukee Public Television and Outdoor Wisconsin host Dan Small visits their living room with his annual Deer Show.

The Nov. 9 show will be carried statewide on public television stations and features a live call-in opportunity. For the entire hour, Department of Natural Resources specialists in wildlife, licensing and conservation law enforcement can answer caller questions on hunting and hunting related topics. Milwaukee Public Television will repeat the broadcast on Nov. 11 at 9 a.m. (No call-in is available during the rebroadcast.)

In addition to the call-in feature, Small will have live and taped guests talking about prospects for this year's hunt, new season structures, hunting rules and deer tagging; chronic wasting disease (CWD) update; tree stand safety; landowner relations; baiting and feeding and a look into the CWD testing laboratory.

The show will feature Dr. Timothy Van Deelen, University of Wisconsin-Department of Wildlife Ecology, and Dr. Joshua Millspaugh, University of Missouri and Keith Warnke, DNR deer and bear ecologist, explaining Wisconsin's method of estimating deer populations.
