ANNAPOLIS — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is seeking public comment on the state’s management of white-tailed deer. The input will be used to help revise the state’s deer management plan for the next 15 years, establishing long-term goals and identifying specific objectives and strategies for achieving them.

Through Feb. 28, the public can provide comments online. The department is also accepting feedback by phone at 410-260-8540; by fax at 410-260-8596; or in writing to: Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Heritage Service, 580 Taylor Avenue, E-1, Annapolis, MD, 21401.

A brief summary of the current status of white-tailed deer management will be presented at four public meetings. The Eastern Shore meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at Chesapeake College, Room 127, Health Professions and Athletics Center, 1000 College Drive, Wye Mills. 

Meetings are weather-dependent, and will be postponed if schools are closed on the scheduled day. Attendees should check the department website for closure and rescheduling information.
