NASF posts Purdue Ag findings, Hunting deer-damaged forests gives IN state parks a shot at recovery

deer, hunting deer-damaged forests gives IN state parks a shot at recovery ​The National Association of State Foresters (NASF) posts Purdue Agriculture research article titled "Hunting gives deer-damaged forests in Indiana state parks a shot at recover." The Purdue research team led by Michael Jenkins, associate professor of forest ecology, shares a 17-year-long Indiana Department of Natural Resources policy of organizing hunts in state parks has successfully spurred the regrowth of native tree seedlings, herbs and wildflowers rendered scarce by browsing deer.

"We can't put nature in a glass dome and think it's going to regulate itself," Jenkins said. "Because our actions have made the natural world the way it is, we have an obligation to practice stewardship to maintain ecological balance."
