The City’s Deer Management Plan identifies the number of deer that the natural habitat within Brooklyn Park can sustain.
The Recreation and Parks Department works in partnership with Three Rivers Park District and a consortium of seven suburban communities to determine the herd count and contracts with the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base (MBRB) to conduct its annual controlled deer hunt. The MBRB coordinates and manages the hunter’s application process, which includes a criminal background check.
Hunters are selected through a drawing of the MBRB members. To become a member and or a volunteer hunter you need to sign up by July 31 via the MBRB website at mbrb.org. Hunt positions are drawn on August 15 so the deadline for hunters to sign up for hunts is midnight on August 14. The Metro Bowhunters Resource Base website is mbrb.org Go to this website for info, policies and frequently asked questions.
