DNR release: Public welcome to attend deer meeting in Glenwood on Sept. 6


Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' area wildlife managers are hosting an open house in Glenwood at the Glenwood DNR Office Conference Room, 23070 N. Lakeshore Dr., on Sept. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The open house is meant to encourage discussions about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication. It is one of the first steps identified for implementing the state's new White-tailed Deer Management Plan and will provide hunters and others interested in deer a forum for sharing their observations, talking to DNR wildlife managers, reviewing new deer-related information — including the final deer plan — and discussing options for the future.

No formal presentations have been planned, so people can arrive any time during the scheduled time.

The DNR encourages anyone who can't attend to contact Kevin Kotts, Glenwood area wildlife supervisor, 320-634-7339, kevin.kotts@state.mn.us, for additional information or to address any questions about deer management.

More information about the state's deer management plan is available at mndnr.gov/deerplan.
