Managed or controlled hunting is a highly organized effort aimed at reducing the local deer population. These hunts are strictly controlled and remain a safe, effective method of reducing the local deer herd. As with all of the lethal deer management techniques, emphasis is placed on removing antlerless deer. The Deer Project staff can guide corporations, government facilities and communities in the processes required to have a managed hunt.
Upon request from a community representative, a DNR wildlife biologist will meet to discuss the various deer management techniques that are available and can assist the community in determining the most appropriate deer management techniques for them. Communities must collectively decide which technique(s) are best for them.
Upon request from a corporation representative, a DNR wildlife biologist meet to discuss the various deer management techniques that are available and can assist in identifying those methods most appropriate for the company.
Upon request from a government agency representative, a DNR wildlife biologist will provide assistance by consulting government agencies on the most appropriate deer management techniques for them, and assist them in designing a plan to help them manage the deer on properties they control.
