The Colorado Division of Wildlife and Craig deer committee left an informal meeting Friday with plans for progress.
Since its formation in 2007, the deer committee has been searching for an answer to what some residents consider a problem population of deer that live year-round inside city limits.
Bill de Vergie, DOW area wildlife manager out of the Meeker office, said he presented various options to committee members and community residents who attended an informal lunch meeting Friday.
The options include everything the agency considered biologically feasible, de Vergie said, from creating a special deer-hunting season for lands surrounding Craig, to education classes about how to keep deer out of a person's yard, to doing nothing.
Craig Mayor Don Jones, a committee member who attended the lunch, said he plans to organize a meeting with other committee members in the coming weeks and then make a presentation to the City Council about the DOW's given options.
In addition, de Vergie said the DOW will continue to assess the situation and look for any other ways to mitigate issue caused by deer inside city limits.
