The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input about all things deer on Thursday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The DNR’s wildlife managers state-wide are welcoming people to stop into their offices or call over that eight-hour time period to give comments or ask their questions about deer-related topics.
“We are happy to be able to open our doors for these discussions,” said Todd Froberg, the DNR’s acting big game program coordinator. “Phone lines will also be open and we’re looking forward to hearing your calls.”
Those looking to participate can find a list of offices and phone numbers on the deer open house webpage, which is here. If people cannot call during the allocated time, the DNR still welcomes the input and encourages them to still reach out.
The DNR began holding these open forums in 2018 after the release of the statewide deer management plan and have continued them to keep improving their connection with the public.
