Continued: Warmer temps end Minnesota's emergency deer feeding program

“I would like to get that conversation started before next winter,’’ said Paul Telander, DNR wildlife section chief.

DNR officials didn’t support the emergency deer feeding. “Based on previous feeding efforts, there’s not a significant portion of the population that is reached,’’ Telander said. “Certainly there are benefits to individual deer on a local scale, but on a larger level, there’s not a significant impact.’’

Johnson still disagrees.

“Our position is, from an emergency standpoint, it’s a viable alternative, and a necessary alternative,’’ he said.

More important, Johnson said, is that his group wants to talk to the DNR about whether there is adequate winter habitat for deer.

“If the answer is no, then we have to make a concerted effort to improve it,’’ he said.

Johnson said the state needs to do more to preserve stands of cedar, traditional deer wintering areas. “Unfortunately we have cedar being cut down on a regular basis,’’ he said.
