DWR to work with cities in controlling deer populations, Cache Valley.com, Aug 17, 2015
The ruling, which took effect August 15, will allow the DWR to work individually with cities in the state to create and implement plans to control deer populations. According to Phil Douglass, the DWR northern region outreach manager, each participating city will be able to create a plan based on its individual needs and public input.
The ruling came after a pilot program was implemented in both Bountiful and Highland and was successful in removing large amounts of deer from within the cities. Both cities used different methods to remove the deer. Bountiful used a non-lethal trap and release program while Highland used certified volunteer archers to lethally hunt the deer within city limits.
