Considering all of the state's wolves and most of the black bears and bobcats are concentrated in
northern and central Wisconsin, that is where you would most expect to detect a predator impact
on the deer herd. Jacques and Van Deelen (2012) estimated potential bear and wolf effects on
deer population growth and recruitment across northern and central Wisconsin for the decade
1998 through 2008. They used a mixed effects regression model with a repeated measures
design. From their analysis they reported wolf effects were virtually nonexistent; however, there
was some evidence bears appeared to have a slight effect on both deer population growth rates
and recruitment rates. Nonetheless, they indicated their findings were based largely on
correlational (theoretical) analyses rather than field based research, these results should be
interpreted with caution, and recommended further investigation through field-based research.
