DNR invites public to attend deer open houses
Those interested in deer can talk with area wildlife managers from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources at meetings scheduled across the state meant to encourage discussions about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication.
These local open-house style meetings 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. No formal presentations have been planned, so people can arrive any time during the scheduled meeting times.
The DNR encourages anyone who cannot attend a scheduled meeting to contact a local wildlife manager for additional information or to address any questions about deer management. A list of area wildlife offices is available online at mndnr.gov/areas/wildlife.
More information about the state's deer management plan is available at mndnr.gov/deerplan.
