    Special Archery Hunt in Nashotah Park for Deer Herd Control


    (WAUKESHA, WI) – In a continued effort to reduce the deer population in Nashotah Park, Waukesha County will open a limited archery hunt within the park to hunters that are licensed and have deer harvest authorization (formerly known as deer tags) through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The special archery hunt will take place from November 27 through December 17, 2018 in Nashotah Park, located at W330 N5113 County Highway C.

    Deer browse assessments, conducted by the Wisconsin DNR staff and Waukesha County staff, have demonstrated that an overabundant deer population is preventing native plants and seedlings from regenerating in the park. The hunt will also assist in controlling the deer herd to allow for an adequate food source to sustain their population, and increase habitat for other wildlife in the park.

    The park will remain open for all non-hunting recreational use during the special hunt. Hunting will not be allowed near the picnic shelters, maintenance buildings, or dog exercise areas. Hunters must remain in the designated hunting areas and follow the Wisconsin DNR archery hunting rules and regulations. Signs will be posted at all entrances to the park to notify patrons and blaze orange vests made available to visitors.

    To aid Waukesha County in tracking the success of deer management at Nashotah Park, hunters are encouraged to report their successful harvest information by email at parks@waukeshacounty.gov or online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/WaukeshaCountyPLUDeerHunt2018. Additional information about the archery hunt in Nashotah Park and other Waukesha County hunting lands can be found online at www.waukeshacounty.gov/hunting.
