THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE
ODFW will host three in-person public meetings in February to present and get public input on the draft Mule Deer Management Plan.
The meetings start at 6:30 p.m. and are Feb. 1 in Salem, Feb. 6 in Bend and Feb. 7 in La Grande. See more details below.
ODFW biologists recently completed a full draft of the revised Plan, which they presented in a series of webinars. Find the draft Plan at the Mule Deer Plan webpage.
The upcoming meetings provide an in-person option for hunters and others who are interested in learning more, asking questions and providing comments.
The Plan incorporates the latest science and research on topics including biology, nutrition, habitat and predation. A highlight of the new Plan is a shift from managing mule deer by wildlife management unit to more biologically meaningful herd ranges that more accurately reflect mule deer behavior.
