DNR, Deer Hunters Group To Hold Listening Sessions About Minnesota Deer Population

Responding to concerns from many deer hunters that the state’s deer population is too low, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association will hold a series of “listening sessions” across the state to gather input from the public.

All listening sessions will be from 7-9 p.m. Here’s a list of the meetings in northern Minnesota:

Virginia: April 1, Mesabi Range College, 1001 Chestnut St. West, auditorium.

Bemidji: March 24, Bemidji High School, 2900 Division St. West, Lumberjack Room.

Brainerd: March 19, Central Lakes Community College, 501 West College Drive.

Online comments also will be accepted beginning March 19 at www.mndnr.gov/deer.

    More important than the population goals maybe is the population modeling they do to arrive at the present years population.
    They over estimate for that year 90% of the time. Many times as much as 50%. Their own data shows that the next 5 years when they recalculate.
