Urban Deer Management

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) are one of the most recognizable and charismatic species of wildlife, but they are the cause of a growing urban
wildlife management problem in many metropolitan areas throughout the United States.   The City of Garden Ridge and the Garden Ridge Wildlife Management Advisory Commission (WMAC) is working to find a balance  where residents and wildlife can safely co-exist.   Provided below are links to Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) educational materials, video of TPW education session in Garden Ridge and link to WMAC page.
