Davenport, Iowa (approximate population 102,000) initiated its deer management program in 2005. Davenport's Urban Deer Hunt is managed through the city's Parks and Recreation Department and is overseen by the Parks Supervisor. Deer management in Davenport is part of Iowa's Deer Management Zone Program, a cooperative initiative between the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and local units of government. The program, an archery hunt on private and public lands, has been successful by some measures. For example, the number of deer-vehicle collisions has been reduced by 50% from pre-management levels.
