Deer Management Workshop and NRC Listening Session
Slated for June 17 in West Branch

The Department of Natural Resources will host a deer management workshop for northeast Michigan residents at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 17, at the Quality Inn located at 2980 Cook Road in West Branch. The workshop will include a listening session with members of the Natural Resources Commission, and will be followed by a public reception with NRC members and DNR staff.

"The deer management workshop is intended to give the northeast Michigan hunting community and other stakeholders an opportunity to gain insight into the processes the DNR uses to estimate the deer population," said DNR Wildlife Division Chief Bill Moritz. "I encourage hunters and others to join us to learn about how we estimate deer population and to provide crucial feedback about this important component of wildlife management."

The workshop will conclude at approximately 11:40 a.m., and will adjourn immediately into the NRC listening session on all DNR issues, chaired by NRC Chairman Keith Charters of Traverse City.  The reception will begin at 1 p.m.

This is the third in a series of workshops on deer population estimating that the DNR has held around the state. The others were in Marquette in April and in Big Rapids in May.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future generations.
