CONTROLLED (Managed) DEER HUNTS
A lottery-based controlled deer hunt is held each year at Addison Oaks and Independence Oaks county parks. The controlled hunts are part of an ecosystem-based approach to natural resources management within the parks system. Firearms deer hunting within the parks system is permitted only when authorized by the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission.
PLEASE NOTE: Addison Oaks and Independence Oaks will be closed to the public on dates designated for controlled deer hunts.
