The Bloomington City Council accepted the deer task force's recommendations but it could be a year before it puts any of them to a vote.
The report, more than two years in the making, includes both lethal and non-lethal options for deer population control.
The council will vote Wednesday on whether to use lethal means to curb the deer population in Bloomington.
Many residents protested lethal methods recommended for deer population control at the Bloomington City Council's meeting Wednesday.
Some members of the group 'BUCK UP' say the large deer population is not necessarily a bad thing.
For the urban areas, the task force is recommending using a snare device that will alert a biologist when a deer is caught.
Members of the task force say the specifics of their recommendation will be made public if and when City Council approves.
The deer task force is holding a series of meetings in the coming weeks to finalize its recommendation to the city council and county commissioners.
It has been slow going for the Bloomington Deer Task Force, including when it comes to compiling a survey of residents.
After a year in existence, the task force is heading to the internet for public input.
