Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ area wildlife managers are hosting an open house in McIntosh on Thursday, August 30, 6 to 8 p.m., at the McIntosh Community Center, 240 Cleveland Ave. SW.

    The open house is meant to encourage discussions about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication. It is one of the first steps identified for implementing the state’s new White-tailed Deer Management Plan and will provide hunters and others interested in deer a forum for sharing their observations, talking to DNR wildlife managers, reviewing new deer-related information – including the final deer plan – and discussing options for the future.

    No formal presentations have been planned, so people can arrive any time during the scheduled time.

    The DNR encourages anyone who can’t attend a scheduled meeting to contact a local wildlife manager for additional information or to address any questions about deer management.

    A list of area wildlife offices is available online at mndnr.gov/areas/wildlife.

    More information about the state’s deer management plan is available at mndnr.gov/deerplan.
