Deer Task Force

Deer in Field

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.

The mission of the Warsaw Deer Task Force is to reduce and maintain the population of deer in a designated nuisance area. 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 Deer Task Force that safety is priority.
