Deer Population Meetings



Deer populations and how to manage them in portions of southeastern Minnesota will be the topic of two Department of Natural Resources public meetings scheduled this month.
               
Population goals will be set for all 300-series permit areas with the exception of two areas which are just south and west of the Twin Cities metro area.

The meetings are scheduled for next Wednesday, Feb. 19th, at Lake City  High School,  and Tuesday, Feb. 25th, at  St. Charles Elementary School.  Both will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The DNR says it's the first step a goal-setting process designed so citizens can express their views on deer numbers and issues associated with deer management.

Similar to past deer goal-setting processes, a citizen advisory team will be convened to provide direction on deer permit area population goals.
