IDFG, City of Pocatello to Host Public Meeting on Urban Deer Management


The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) and the City of Pocatello are asking local residents to join them for a discussion on the area’s urban mule deer population.

Wednesday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the IDFG office located at 1345 Barton Road, officials will be hosting a meeting with citizens to talk mule deer and their interaction with humans in and around Pocatello. The dialogue between leaders and residents will focus on the western Pocatello foothills and specifically the Johnny Creek, Gibson Jack Creek and Mink Creek areas.

“At City Hall, we’ve heard stories from residents about motor vehicle accidents involving deer and the animals destroying landscaping,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “On the other side, we’ve heard about humans feeding the deer, which contributes to the increase in interactions. We want to work with residents to identify strategies that will help decrease the number of conflicts between residents and wildlife.”

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game office is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days’ advance notice by contacting Dave Hunt at; 208.234.6248 or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
