Madison, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources got quite a financial boost from the Safari Club to continue their research of the white-tail deer.

The Safari Club donated $25,000 to Wisconsin’s White-Tailed Deer research projects in order to improve game management.

This money will be used for equipment and staff costs related to deer research across the state.

In 2010, the DNR Bureau of Science Services launched a research project that would span multiple years to gather data regarding a variety of factors surrounding the White-Tailed Deer, including the effects of a changing predator population, hunting patterns and fluctuations in hunter ranks.

The Safari Club is part of the larger Safari Club International that has provided $47 million to conservation, wildlife education and humanitarian programs worldwide in the last 12 years.
