The commission’s new strategy outlines the four main goals: reducing deer impacts in developed areas using hunting options; reducing deer-human conflicts using non-hunting options; informing urban leadership, residents, and hunters about deer management options and opportunities in developed areas; and encouraging positive relationships between hunters and communities in developed areas.
It’s on the Agenda for today’s PGC meeting:
While traditional hunting, that is, without bait, is the most economical way to manage deer populations, by allowing the use of bait while hunting, there is the potential to increase harvest, hunter success, and hunter opportunity in developed areas. Providing this tool in our most developed areas will be beneficial to hunters, urban residents, and the Game Commission’s deer management program.
