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.
How to sign up
Hunters are selected through a drawing of the MBRB members. Hunt positions are drawn on August 15. The deadline for current MBRB members or volunteer hunters to sign up for hunts is midnight on August 14.
To become a member and be eligible for the 2023 hunt, sign up via the MBRB website at mbrb.org by July 31, 2023.
