DNR announces plan to manage Minnesota deer herd


A first-ever state plan to help manage the Minnesota’s whitetail deer population was announced Tuesday by the Department of Natural Resources, and includes a target harvest of 200,000 whitetails and promise to work closely with the public.

One of the ideas behind the plan is to create more opportunities for the public and local wildlife area managers to talk about deer management and help people understand that it’s a balancing act, said Leslie McInenly, acting manager for the DNR’s wildlife populations program. Major goals of the plan range from maintaining a healthy deer population and habitat to increasing citizen satisfaction.
