Wildlife official to discuss deer management in Vermont
NEW HAVEN — Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department Deer Project Leader Adam Murkowski will speak at the New Haven Town Hall on Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. His presentation, titled “White-tailed Deer Biology, Ecology and Management,” is part of the New Haven Conservation Commission’s Armchair Naturalist Series.
Murkowski will talk about the comprehensive deer management evaluation now being conducted by the Fish and Wildlife Department, and how this evaluation of current and potential season structures and harvest regulations may result in changes to Vermont’s current deer hunting seasons and regulations. He will give details on the evaluation and present potential management alternatives, and will take questions from the audience. Hunters are encouraged to attend.
Murkowski is a Wisconsin native who holds a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Points and a master’s degree in forest resources from the University of Arkansas-Monticello. Prior to moving to Vermont, he was involved with deer research activities in Wisconsin, Colorado, Arkansas and North Carolina. He lives in Rutland.
