WILDLIFE COMMITTEE MEETS OCTOBER 23, 2017 @ 7:00 P.M. – DEER MANAGEMENT

Motorists are cautioned to be aware of deer during mating season.  Click on the following link for the latest NJDEP news release: Deer Mating Season

Residents are urged to attend the next meeting of the Wildlife Committee scheduled for October 23, 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 the  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

REMINDER:  PLEASE REPORT ALL MOTOR VEHICLE INCIDENTS WITH DEER:

  • If you are still at the scene of the incident, call Police non-emergency dispatch 732-462-4343 and an Officer will be on the scene shortly.
  • If you have left the scene of the incident, report your event by completing the SR-1 (on-line completion and print versions follow) and mail it to the State.
