DEER MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP OF COLTS NECK

On September 14, 2016 the Township Committee adopted a resolution amending the discharge ordinance (Ordinance #2016-17).  Hunting will now be 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?

  1. Applicable to private property only.
  2. Hunters will possess all appropriate licenses and zone permits issued by NJ State Fish &Wildlife Division for hunting white-tailed deer.
  3. Written permission from all pertinent landowners must be in hunters’ possession while hunting. NO exceptions.

Although deer hunting season is now over, it is never too early to plan for the Fall 2017 hunting season.
