The Game and Fish Department has drawn up a new management plan for mule deer in the Platte Valley. The herd there has been declining for some time, and the management plan is aimed at reversing that trend.

 

The plan includes measures to limit mule deer hunting, improve the animals’ habitat and curb predation by bears and lions.

 

Regional Wildlife Supervisor Rick King says currently, an unlimited number of mule deer licenses can be sold.
