KANSAS NEWS: Shawnee Mission Park Cull Nets 313 Deer

Shawnee Mission State Park is 1250 acres, 150 of which is a lake. This harvest is the equivalent of 182 deer per square mile of habitat.

Volunteer sharpshooters killed 313 deer in Shawnee Mission Park last week, park officials reported Monday.

Randy Knight, a spokesman for the Johnson County Park and Recreation District, said the first phase of the park’s deer harvest has ended and the herd will be surveyed later this month to determine whether more deer should be killed.

If a second phase is needed, bow hunters would be brought in beginning Dec. 7.
