Deer Management Program

Deer Management Graphic

Project Overview

In June, the City Council approved initial efforts to reduce the population of white-tailed deer in the City of Wildwood. The City plans to work with a nonprofit organization, White Buffalo, Inc., to cull up to 300 deer this winter, as authorized by the Missouri Department of Conservation. This would be the first year of a multiyear effort planned to reduce the deer population density to a preferred density of 40 deer per square mile within the City. The deer culling effort for this winter is planned for the area of highest density deer population, based on the 2020 deer population counts completed by the Wildwood Police Precinct. The project area totals 5.53 square miles in size and has a deer density of 94 deer per square mile, and thus an excess population of 54 deer per square mile. The first year of the program is expected to cost $216,000.
