SUMMARY: Bureau of Land Management AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior. Notice of availability.

Agency and public comments and NPS responses are provided in Appendix F of the Final Plan/EIS. The Final Plan/EIS considers four alternatives for the management of white-tailed deer at the Park. Under Alternative A (No Action), existing management actions would continue, including deer and vegetation monitoring, data management, and research. No new actions would occur to reduce the effects of deer overbrowsing. Alternative B (Combined Non-lethal Actions) would include all SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 actions described under Alternative A and would incorporate a combination of nonlethal actions, including the construction of large-scale deer exclosures (fencing) for the purposes of forest regeneration. Nonsurgical reproductive control of does would be used to restrict population growth when this technology meets certain criteria. Alternative C (Lethal Actions) would also include all actions described under Alternative A, and would add lethal deer management actions to reduce the herd size, including direct reduction of the deer herd by sharpshooting with firearms or by implementing capture and euthanasia of individual deer in certain circumstances where sharpshooting would not be appropriate. Alternative D (Combined Lethal and Non-lethal Actions) is the NPS preferred alternative. Alternative D would include all actions described under Alternative A, and it would also incorporate a combination of lethal and nonlethal actions from Alternatives B and C. Sharpshooting and limited capture/ euthanasia would be used initially to quickly reduce deer herd numbers. Then, population maintenance could be conducted either by nonsurgical reproductive control methods, if certain criteria are met, or by sharpshooting. Both of these population maintenance methods are retained as options in order to maintain maximum flexibility for future management. Dated: September 22, 2014. Patricia S.
