Persons interested in deer and deer management in the Aitkin area are invited to attend a public open house hosted by local wildlife managers from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The open house will be on Aug. 21 between 5 and 6:30 p.m. at the Aitkin area wildlife office, located at 1200 Minnesota Avenue in Aitkin. The meeting is one of many taking place around the state between mid-August and early September to discuss deer-related topics including upcoming hunting regulation changes that were released in early August.
These local, open house meetings are a way to encourage conversations about deer and deer management, enhance local relationships and foster two-way communication between the DNR and the public.
The DNR began the meetings last year with the release of its statewide deer management plan. This is the second dedicated opportunity for conversation about deer-related topics this year; the first meetings were held in March and April.
