Wildlife Damage & Venison Program

Wildlife Damage

The Wisconsin Wildlife Damage Abatement and Claims Program (WDACP) assists farmers when wildlife damage their agricultural crops. The program provides damage prevention assistance and partial compensation to farmers when wild deer, 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.
