MADISON, Wis. -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is asking people to report any dead deer they see as the agency works to track the harsh winter's toll on the state herd.

Last year's significant snow and cold that persisted into May resulted in lower deer numbers going into the 2013 fall seasons. The agency set antlerless permit numbers at their lowest levels since the 1990s.

Frigid conditions over the last two months don't bode well for the herd, especially in northern Wisconsin, where deer numbers have been declining. DNR officials anticipate no antlerless permits or extremely limited numbers of antlerless permits in many northern counties this fall to help the herd recover.

Agency officials reiterated feeding deer is prohibited in chronic wasting disease areas.
