MADISON, Wis. -

Wisconsin wildlife officials are planning an online chat next week about efforts to implement a Texas researcher's deer management recommendations.

The Department of Natural Resources has scheduled the chat to begin at noon on Monday. Participants can join in through the DNR's website or through the agency's Facebook page.

Gov. Scott Walker's administration hired James Kroll to study deer hunting and how the DNR can improve its relationship with hunters. Kroll came up with 62 recommendations, including holding mini-hunts on private land, setting more localized deer population goals and a more passive approach to handling chronic wasting disease.

The DNR has asked four action teams to find the best way to implement the recommendations. The agency plans to draft rules based on the teams' conclusions.
