The city of Portage will begin harvesting nuisance deer this month and continue into April.
The city will be harvesting up to 25 deer and offering them to the names on the list in the order they are received. Not all who are on the list are guaranteed to receive a deer; priority will be given to Portage residents and the program is limited to one animal per person.
Anyone interested in placing their name on the list to receive a deer from the program may call the city of Portage Park and Recreation office by Wednesday.
For more information and to register, you can call 608-742-2178 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
