Managed deer hunt set in Fort Frederick

December 03, 1999

BIG POOL - Fort Frederick State Park in Washington County will be closed for regular public use Tuesday and Wednesday while a biological managed deer hunt is conducted on park property.

The purpose of the hunt is to help control the overpopulated deer herd at Fort Frederick. By closing the two days during the hunt, the staff will be able to utilize additional areas for the managed hunt and maintain safety.

Under the Maryland Department of Natural Resources managed deer hunt program, hunters who were previously selected by a drawing, are placed at predetermined shooting zones by DNR rangers and park personnel.

Twenty-five hunters per day will be involved and closely monitored to ensure public safety and a successful hunt at Fort Frederick State Park.
