DNR won't use helicopter to capture deer

Posted:

The DNR is now scrapping its attempts to capture deer with a helicopter.

DNR officials were firing nets at the deer then airlifting them to an area for tagging.

 

The DNR says the helicopter experienced repeated mechanical problems, and they were only able to capture half the deer they'd hoped to.

The DNR will instead use ground traps to capture the deer with the goal being to track their movements
