White-tailed Deer Management Plan – 2021 Controlled Deer Hunt in Brooklyn Park
In 2011, the Brooklyn Park City Council adopted a Deer Management Plan that addresses concerns about the number of white-tailed deer in the community.
The plan balances deer population with their biological habitat and the tolerance level of residents.
The plan is for five areas to be hunted again this fall, and the areas include:

The controlled hunt dates and locations are as follows:
- October 4, 5, and 6 – all locations
- October 25, 26, and 27 – all locations
- November 8, 9, and 10 – all locations
The hunt will be conducted by Metro Bowhunters Resource Base (MBRB), a group that has managed hunts since 1995. Hunters, many of whom are from Brooklyn Park, are selected through a computerized lottery system. Only these permitted hunters are allowed to participate.
Questions or concerns regarding the hunt can be directed to Recreation and Parks Director Brad Tullberg by email at Brad.Tullberg@brooklynpark.org.
