UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   The harsh winter has taken a toll on wildlife, especially the deer herd in Wisconsin. The DNR says the herd suffered through a hard winter with deep snow that made finding food difficult.

DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp says the DNR does not yet have a deer count but expects this year's herd to be lower than years past. She says it is too soon to say how that will affect deer hunters.

The DNR says tips from the public are one way it learns about potential problems within deer herds and also where they are located.
