DNR sets deer management open houses across Minnesota

Body: 

ST. PAUL—Deer and deer management will highlight open house sessions hosted by area Department of Natural Resources wildlife managers across the state.

The open houses are meant to enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication.

The open house sessions are among the first steps identified for implementing the state's new White-tailed Deer Management Plan. The open houses will provide hunters and others interested in deer a forum for sharing their observations, talking to DNR wildlife managers, reviewing new deer-related information — including the final deer plan — and discussing options for the future.

A list of meetings can be found at mndnr.gov/deerplan.

No formal presentations have been planned, so people can arrive any time during the scheduled time.

The DNR encourages anyone who can't attend the open house meetings to contact their local wildlife manager for additional information or to address any questions about deer management.
