Please be aware that a draft White-tailed Deer management policy has been posted to the Environmental Registry for public input. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) is committed to sustainable management of Ontario’s White-tailed Deer to maintain healthy populations while balancing social and economic interests.
