The Natural Resources Board is seeking the public's input on potential alternatives to Earn-a-Buck to control the deer population.

The Special Advisory Committee for Hunter and Landowner Support of Effective Alternative Deer Population Control Methods has launched a Web site, deerherd.editme.com.

Interested parties can log on to get information about the options. Saturday, the committee will post a survey seeking opinions on alternatives ranging from adding a four-day, October hunt to expanding the November hunt to 16 days.

The unpopular Earn-a-Buck program has been nixed outside of the CWD zones, but wildlife officials still believe the herd is too big in some areas of the state.
