Deer hunting is allowed at Lake Sonoma on a limited basis to help control the deer population.  Each year, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife conducts a survey of the of the herd at Lake Sonoma to determine the maximum number of bucks that can be taken.  Areas of the park that have been closed for decades are now open only for deer hunting.
