Input sought for deer and elk management

Hood River Valley growers, residents and property owners: Are you concerned with the growing numbers of deer and elk moving through your orchards and property?

If so, the Hood River County Farm Bureau seeks your input at a comprehensive planning session for managing deer and elk in our area.

The event will be held Wednesday, July 10, at 3 p.m. at the Parkdale Fire Department, 4895 Baseline Road.

Forrest Frantz, who has been tracking the habitat and migration patterns for the deer and elk in our area, will be presenting, and Mike Moore, assistant district wildlife biologist from The Dalles district office of the ODFW, will be there to answer questions.

Information will also be provided by the Oregon Farm Bureau on how it has been working with state agencies and landowners in Eastern Oregon in dealing with these same issues.

For more information contact: Randy Kiyokawa at 541-806-7115 or Forrest Frantz at 503-883-1161.
