STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) Stevens Point has approved harvesting 50 antlerless deer within the city limits between now and December. The city’s deer management committee says it's necessary to control the deer population and reduce the number of car crashes.
The deer population in Iverson Park is up compared to recent years.
The deer will be taken by bow hunters, since discharging a firearm within city limits is illegal. Hunters will need a special permit from the city.
