DEER MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP OF COLTS NECK

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.  May 10, 2017 Report

By Ordinance No. 2016-17, hunting is permitted on “parcels of three (3) acres or larger” which may be “aggregated continuous acreage of more than one landowner”. This is a step forward designed to reduce the deer population and result in fewer motor vehicle accidents, reduced incidents of Lyme disease, reduced loss to agriculture and damage to property.

What is required to meet the amended ordinance requirements for hunting?

  • 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.

Summer months are the time to plan for the Fall 2017 hunting season.

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