WARSAW — The Deer Task Force is looking for archers this year to participate in their deer reduction program. The program was designed to control deer overpopulation inside city limits and aims to aid the residents of Warsaw by doing so.
This year, the task force will only be accepting veteran Deer Task Force archers into its reduction effort. Veteran task force archers are defined as being “archers who have successfully participated in our reduction effort for a minimum of one year since the inception of the program.” This means that only archers who have previously participated in the deer reduction effort may volunteer.
The Deer Task Force is inviting former archers to return and qualify for their reduction efforts this year at their training session from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 20, at the Warsaw Police Department. Due to low numbers in the past few years, there will only be one training date for veteran archers.
Due to low deer counts in the past few years, the Deer Task Force is also either limiting participation in/or closing the following Public Reduction Zones:
- Hire Park (BMX)
- Lakeview Middle School Island
- Boggs Park
