Many of our suburban neighborhoods are overrun with deer. Deer/vehicles collisions are increasing. Many residents are being treated for Lyme disease. The managed hunts in our parks cannot begin to make a dent in the large and growing herds. Residents can help by learning about bow & arrow hunting, contacting skilled and safe hunters who will take out deer at no cost, and organizing this needed activity on your private property. The Montgomery County Civic Federation has worked with state and county officials to get the regulations on this activity liberalized and getting out information about archery hunting. Please visit the website HERE for a comprehensive list of documents including regulations for the current hunting season, "A Citizens Guide to Safe Bow and Arrow Hunting in Residential Communities in Montgomery County", Q&As from an experienced archery hunter, and much more.
