The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking public input on 2020 deer populations and observations using an online survey. 

The survey includes questions about experiences hunters had during the deer hunting season; issues related to damage deer might do to crops, landscaping or gardens; and other deer-related issues. 

This year the DNR will also ask for input on several proposed deer permit area boundary changes and will use the feedback to shape regulations for the 2021 hunting season. 

The survey is open through Friday, Jan. 29, and further details are on the DNR website.
