Survey Shows Stable Deer Population In McDowell Sonoran Preserve

DeerArizona wildlife officials say an aerial survey of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve northeast of Scottsdale shows there are stable populations of deer in the area. 

The findings of the recent survey could impact decisions on bow hunting in the preserve.  Bow hunting is currently allowed within the preserve, but activists say the sport has the potential to harm hikers or reduce animal populations affected by encroaching development.

More surveys of the area's wildlife are planned.
