Anchors Landing Deer Management
Deer are arguably the most prominent wildlife feature in Anchors Landing and we intend to keep it that way. In order to ensure that we have a healthy herd, in 2019 the Board solicited the help of the North Carolina Wildlife Commission. The Commission proposed a three-year study of the Anchors Landing deer population, The proposal can be found on the documents page
The first year, six deer were taken and sent to the University of Georgia for detailed examination and study to determine their health status. The report that resulted became available in June 2021 and found that the overall status of the deer in Anchors Landing would be rated as "Fair". The entire report can be found on the documents page. In December, 2020 NC Wildlife Commission personnel conducting deer culling activities in the neighborhood identified an Asian Longhorn Tick. This was one of the first ticks of this variety to be identified in Caldwell County. For more information, you can read the NC Extension fact sheet on the documents page.
