[ARCHIVED] Deer and Wildlife Task Force

For the past 20+ years, the City of Vadnais Heights has allowed archery deer hunting by special permit with specific requirements and guidelines. The main reasons this has been allowed are as follows:

  • The deer population within the City limits has been greater than the DNR recommendation
  • Increased car/deer crashes
  • Concern over the deer population living in a healthy and safe environment, and
  • Damage by deer to crops/vegetation

City staff has discussed the need to review this process for a variety of reasons:

  • Growth in the community since this process originally began
  • The need to develop a wildlife management program and implement the goals of the program
  • Population control options if an aerial survey deems this warranted, and
  • Discussion regarding the size of a parcel(s) allowed for hunting; number of hunters allowed per permit/address; how to ensure DNR rules are being followed, etc.

If you are interested in participating in this Task Force please contact Kathy Keefe, Assistant City Administrator at or 651-204-6013 by December 20. This Task Force will begin meeting after the first of the year.
