Cuivre River State Park near Troy is one of three state parks that will be closed for one weekend in December to allow for special deer hunts.
State conservation officials say the hunts are needed to ease deer overpopulations that are damaging the resources.
The parks will be closed that weekend to everyone except hunters who applied during the summer for special permits. The hunters were chosen through random computer drawings.
The special hunt is scheduled Dec. 8-9.
