Deer Management Implementation Committee

The original Ridgefield Deer Committee, which had its first meeting Sept. 29, 2004, was established by the Board of Selectmen to determine the extent of the overpopulation of White-tailed Deer in Ridgefield, Connecticut, and if and how the town should deal with the problem.  The subsequent Deer Management Implementation Committee was thereafter appointed to implement a plan to reduce the deer population in the Town.  A controlled hunt has occurred every year since 2005.
