Managed Deer Hunt in Wildwood was Best in Years
Here are final details about the annual deer harvest for the Rockwoods Reservation managed deer hunt in Wildwood.
The final count from the managed deer harvest for the two-day hunt on Nov. 26-27 at Rockwoods Reservation was 19 deer, reports Gus Raeker, forestry district supervisor for the reservation area in Wildwood.
The count includes one four-point buck, three button bucks, and fifteen does, Raeker told Patch.
"This harvest helps us toward our goal of maintaining a healthy population of about 25 deer per square mile (75 deer across the 3-square mile area)," he said.
Per prior Patch reporting, seven deer total were shot last year for the annual hunt in the same conservation area, and six deer total two years ago.
