Deer Management

2018 

A  special permit archery hunt is planned to take place October 8-10 and November 5-7 in Highland Park. The hunt will occur in the same twenty-acre parcel of land that was hunted in 2014, 2015, and 2017. Attached is a map of the hunt area for your reference. A hunt will also be held in Crosby Farm Regional Park this year during the same dates. As in the past, the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base (MBRB) will be conducting the hunt. We will be notifying nearby neighbors via mail, and posting signs at the boundary of the hunting area to inform residents of hunt dates.
