This fall, a small number of people will be able to bow hunt deer at Lake Lansing Park North for the first time. The hunt is part of Meridian Township’s managed deer harvest program designed to control and reduce the area’s overpopulation of deer. Hunting is allowed only at or near one the four hunting blinds set up by Meridian township officials. Park manager Pat Witte said each blind is required to be at least 450 feet away from any walking trail, building or park amenity in order to ensure the safety of park guests. Any trail cameras intended to be used must be put through the game camera review committee.
