SCA has been working to identify and assess issues related to mule deer in the Spring Creek Valley and how it has affected residents in the Valley. We have received concerns from residents regarding the deer and hope to get feedback from all residents, first, to access the scope of issues. We encouraged residents in the Spring Creek Valley to fill out a Survey in February of 2023 and provide this feedback. Please click the button below to view these results.
Per Nevada state law it is illegal to willfully feed any game mammal, this includes deer! Not only is it illegal but feeding of wildlife often leads to many issues including habituation. This is when an animal gets accustomed to humans and is no longer afraid of them. In some cases, this can lead to animals becoming aggressive as they associate humans with food. If you see a neighbor feeding the deer, please report them to the Operation Game Thief program at: 1-800-992-3030. To learn more on Mule Deer, please visit the NDOW website

What can I do about the deer in my yard?
Hunting in any form within Spring Creek Association is prohibited. Signage is posted at every main entrance of the Association. Do not intentionally feed deer. Local feed stores sell sacks of "deer feed" however; this feed is not natural forage for the deer, it is a grain which their stomachs cannot digest and is of no benefit to them. Keep your hay and/or grain covered or inside a storage building or barn. Plant "deer resistant" foliage/trees. Put up a fence; fences don't always keep them out but they help deter them. Placing fencing around your trees will protect them from damage from shedding bucks and hungry pregnant does.
