WAUKESHA — A limited archery hunt is scheduled to take place at Nashotah Park in Waukesha in order to reduce the deer population in the area.
Anyone with a hunting license and deer tags, now known as deer harvest authorization, can take part in the hunt, which is scheduled for Nov. 27 through Dec. 17.
According to a press release from Waukesha County, a reduction in the deer population would "improve regeneration of native hardwoods in the forest which will allow for an adequate food source to sustain their population and also increase habitat for other wildlife in the parks."
The park will remain open for recreational use during the hunt. However, hunters need to stay within the hunting areas and away from recreation areas like picnic shelters, maintenance buildings, or dog exercise areas.
If you choose to take part in the hunt and you manage to kill any deer, the county would like you to report it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out the survey here.
