INDIANA NEWS: New Deer Management Plan for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore has developed an ambitious 15-year plan to manage deer on their lands. It includes deer impact monitoring, using fencing and deer repellents to protect specific rare plants, and of course, culling.
When the plan was written, it called for more than 1,000 deer to be culled during the first three years of the 15-year plan, with additional culls in later years.
The specific number of deer to be culled over the 15 year plan will change, depending on the results of the monitoring data. The number could be higher or lower. Source: Portage News
