2002 Deer Herd Reduction
This year, fourteen state parks and one nature preserve are sites of a controlled deer herd reduction Nov. 18-19 and Dec. 2-3. Volunteer hunters assist the DNR in reducing the size of the deer herds, which have grown too large to be supported at these parks. The goal of the deer herd reduction is to help restore and maintain the ecological balance in the parks.
