Sections of the Duke Forest popular with runners will be closed to the public Mondays through Fridays during the fall season. The 13th annual deer herd reduction program begins on Monday, October 5th and ends on Friday, December 11th. Affected areas include the Durham section (the trails along NC 751 just west of campus), the Korstian section (located between Mt. Moriah and Whitfield Roads), and the Blackwood section (near Chapel Hill in Orange county). All sections of the Forest will, however, be open to the public on Thursday and Friday of Thanksgiving week.
