Spotlight on deer may put more in hunter's sights


NEW LONDON -- Local wildlife workers with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources put deer in the spotlight this spring.

Area hunters could put more deer in their gun sights this autumn as a result.

The wildlife workers drove designated routes and shined deer with spotlights from their vehicles. Known as distance sampling, the two-person teams recorded how many pairs of deer eyes glowed back at them.
