If anyone is up to an interesting read log on to the front page article of the Iowa City, Iowa news paper "The Press Citizen". For more than a year the city officials, including the police department, have been pleading and begging the DRN to issue cull permits so they can hire sharpshooters to try to bring the run away deer population under control. The DNR steadfastly refuses and seems oblivious to a problem they created in the first place. Its common to see deer walking down city streets in broad daylight bucks included and in the courtyards at the U of IA hospital munching the plants & flowers in broad daylight. The urban deer population within the city limits is estimated at 10,000 which is mentioned in repeated articles. That estimate is conservative in my opinion. Highway fatalities are not uncommon from deer crashes in this state.
