MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources is asking deer hunters to fill out two new surveys.

One survey focuses on hunters' perceptions of local herds, asking whether hunters believe the herd in local management units has grown or shrunk and whether the DNR issues the proper number of permits for each unit.

The other survey asks broader questions, including how the DNR should implement recommendations Texas researcher James Kroll offered last summer to improve the hunt and how to fight chronic wasting disease.

The surveys will be available online as well as at a number of public meetings to discuss the 2013 deer hunt and Kroll's recommendations over the coming months.
