Urban Deer Management

  • Archery hunters are able to hunt in urban areas. There is no safety zone associated with archery equipment anymore so this is a viable option for many urban areas. They need the appropriate licenses to hunt during the season and we highly recommend that neighbors are made aware and are supportive of the hunting activities.
  • Wildlife Services is an excellent option for urban areas since they are able to perform the removals efficiently and quietly.
  • Managed Hunts- we have had these in the past, often times local law enforcement takes the lead with these. If it’s out of season we provide the permits and can help with guidance.
  • Education campaigns are a big part of this in order to get approval from home-owners in many areas. It’s also important to educate about ways to deter deer from areas (certain plants are unpalatable for deer, no feeding of wildlife in these areas, etc.).
  • If a hunter shoots a deer and it runs onto someone else’s property they are not allowed to retrieve the deer until they receive permission from the landowner. If the landowner doesn’t give permission the hunter must let the lie.
