WILDLIFE COMMITTEE MEETS SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 @ 7:00 P.M. – DEER MANAGEMENT

Residents are urged to attend the next meeting of the Wildlife Committee scheduled for September 25, 2017,  7:00 p.m.,  at Town Hall.  Meet the hunters and discuss the potential for hunting on smaller lots (3 acres contiguous) to safely and economically address the growing deer and tick population, decrease the incidence of Lyme disease, reduce the loss to agriculture and damage to property and decrease the number of deer-related motor vehicle accidents .

By Ordinance No. 2016-17, hunting by licensed hunters is permitted on “parcels of three (3) acres or larger” which may be “aggregated contiguous acreage of more than one landowner”.   Requirements:

  • Must be private property.
  • Hunters must possess required licenses and zone permits issued by NJ State Fish & Wildlife Division for hunting white-tailed deer.
  • Hunters must carry written permission from all pertinent landowners while hunting. NO exceptions.

Based on a recent Wildlife Committee report made to the Township Committee, there is an increased risk to public safety due to motor vehicle incidents with deer and an increased risk for the incidence of lime disease.

Please e-mail the Wildlife Committee to discuss your needs:  coltsneckwildlifecommittee@gmail.com
