Deer Management Assistance Program Updated:09/2021

LDWF’s Deer Management Assistance Program provides professional technical assistance to participating hunting clubs and private landowners and managers to manage their local deer populations and habitats through prescribed deer harvests. Today, there are more than 700 DMAP participants on about 1.6 million acres of land.

How DMAP Works
LDWF biologists survey habitat on land enrolled in the program and provide program participants recommendations for harvest quotas and strategies as well as habitat management. LDWF issues DMAP tags to participants to use during the entire deer season.  Participants collect physical data from harvested deer, including sex, weight, antler development, and lactation, and submit it to biologists. Biologists examine these data and evaluate the growth and development of deer by age class. They identify trends in growth and development and use this information to refine their management recommendations.
