If you have an interest in Vermont's white-tailed deer you will want to attend one of five upcoming public meetings being held by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department to discuss the status of the deer population and deer herd management. The meetings begin March 12 in Montpelier.

Wildlife biologists will explain the current condition of deer, the affects of the winter and they will review last fall's hunting season results. They also will be asking for input from attendees about managing Vermont?s deer population.

"I'd like to invite anyone who has an interest in Vermont's white-tailed deer to consider attending at least one of these meetings," said John Buck who chairs the state's deer management team. "It doesn't matter if you are a hunter, forester, gardener, teacher, or you have some other interest in deer."

Printed reports of the 2001 season results and the ten-year deer management plan will be available at the meetings.

Anyone interested is urged to attend one of the following meetings, all beginning at 7:00 p.m. and ending at 9:00 p.m.:
