From our IN neighbors. I did not get into the council’s recommendations link. Good luck.

Open house offers chance to discuss captive deer regulation
Friday, March 26, 2004

INDIANAPOLIS — For the past six months, a 10-member group comprised of Indiana deer ranchers, hunting preserve owners and conservationists tackled the controversial subjects of regulating white-tailed deer ranching and hunting of deer and elk within fenced enclosures.

The group, known as the Citizens Advisory Council on Captive Cervids, has developed draft recommendations for how Indiana should regulate deer and elk in captivity.

The series of draft recommendations address the rehabilitation of white-tailed deer, cervids as pets, regulatory functions of the Department of Natural Resources and Indiana Board of Animal Health, and hunting of cervids (deer) within high-fenced enclosures.

Four open house meetings are planned or have been held across the state to give Hoosiers an opportunity to review, discuss and comment on the advisory group’s recommendations.

Two meetings were held last week in Vincennes and Seymour.

The next meeting is today in Fort Wayne at the Best Western Luxbury Hotel, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. The hotel is at the intersection of I-69 and S.R. 24, (exit 102).

The last meeting is April 3 in West Lafayette.

A complete listing of the advisory council’s recommendations is available at http://www.in.gov/dnr/cervidcouncil/resolutions. html.
