Deer Harvest Management

Deer hunting is a significant public use on Grand Cote National Wildlife Refuge but is also used to manage the deer herd and as a result provide healthy habitat. Deer populations should be reduced to under carrying capacity or at a density that the habitat can support. Removing a portion of the herd annually with the appropriate age structure and sex ratios should result in a healthy herd.
