State and local officials have determined that deer overpopulation inside the city limits of Warsaw has become a public nuisance. Reported traffic accidents, observation, citizen complaints, property damage, and survey results all support this conclusion. It has also been determined that not attempting to reduce the deer population will be a greater threat to the health and safety of residents living in our area.
ANY INTERESTED ARCHER MAY APPLY TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR REDUCTION EFFORT FOR 2019. Any person interested in participating may apply and complete the mandatory training. We will evaluate the impact this policy has on our program after the 2019 reduction effort.
The mission of the Warsaw Deer Task Force is to reduce and maintain the population of deer in a designated nuisance area (PDF). The use of archery equipment allows for a safe and ethical means to harvest deer and this is a low-key approach towards the public. It is in the interest of the DTF that safety is priority.
