The Minnesota Deparment of Natural Resources says public comments on southeastern Minnesota deer population goals recommended by a citizen advisory team, will be accepted April 8th, through Sunday, April 20th, on the DNR's website.
Specific population goal recommendations for each of the nine deer hunting areas that comprise the goal-setting area of southeastern Minnesota will be posted online as well as the factors advisory team members cited when making recommendations. People should review this supporting information before submitting comments.
The DNR will evaluate advisory team recommendations and public comments on those recommendations before determining the final deer population goal for each hunting area.
More information on the process is available on the DNR's deer management Web page at www.mndnr.gov/deer.....
