Deer Population Management Initiatives

Montgomery Parks, periodically expands its deer management operations. This action is needed to address damage caused by an increasing population of deer, including deer-related automobile accidents, damage to natural resources, and increased potential of communicable diseases such as Lyme disease.

The public will be notified by Parks as soon as a park has been proposed as a potential additon to the Deer Population Management Program. There will be a comment period where the community can voice their opinions on this topic prior to any decisions being made.

A more detailed description of the Department of Parks' deer management goals and programming, including the Park Police-based sharpshooting program is available here.
