Biologists study Isaac's impact on deer

Sep 9, 2012

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries biologists are assessing the impact of Hurricane Isaac on deer populations in parishes flooded by the storm.

Biologists say flooding killed some deer. Aerial, waterborne and ground surveys of the storm's overall impact on deer will continue through September.

Data collected will be used to develop recommendations for possible changes to the upcoming deer season. Such proposals would be presented to the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission for consideration at its Oct. 4 meeting.
