City officials plan to expand controlled bowhunting to three additional parks this fall in an effort to manage Pittsburgh’s spiraling population of white-tailed deer.
They also are considering augmenting the hunting program with professional sharpshooters.
In a pilot launched last September with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 30 archers harvested 108 deer in Frick and Riverview parks through January, according to a debrief report from Mayor Ed Gainey’s office. Archers are being recruited to also hunt Schenley, Highland, and Emerald View parks in the same time frame in 2024-25.
