The Air Force Academy plans a deer hunt next month. This year it will happen December 8 through 10 and December 15 through 17.
"The Academy has safely and effectively used hunting since 1988 as a management tool to control the size of the deer herd," said Brian Mihlbachler, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service natural resources manager. "It helps minimize vehicle accidents and damage to the habitat and Academy grounds."
Frequently used roads and trails leading into the hunting areas will be posted with bright orange warning signs requesting that all personnel stay out of these areas.
All hunters are guided by USAFA or Colorado Parks and Wildlife personnel during these hunts.
