With youth deer weekend just around the corner, young hunters are encouraged to take to the field to hone their skills and to also help Fish & Wildlife biologists by reporting their deer at one of 23 biological check stations around the state.
Managing for deer herd health means monitoring the physical condition of individual deer to ensure they are healthy. The youth deer weekend is our best opportunity to assess the physical condition of individual deer and examine the demographics of the deer herd as youth hunters are allowed to harvest any deer without antler restrictions.
Fish & Wildlife biologist will be at the 23 biological check stations from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on November 8 and 9.
