UNION COUNTY, NJ - The 2017 Union County Deer Management program will be conducted in six Union County parks and one municipal park, including Summit's Passaic River Park, beginning in January.

The program continues the annual removal of deer by marksmen selected by and acting as agents of Union County at sites that, in addition to Passaic River Park, include the Watchung Reservation, Lenape and Nomahegan Parks, Ash Brook Reservation, Oak Ridge Park and at the City of Linden’s Hawk Rise Sanctuary. 

Hunting in all of those parks will occur on Mondays from January 9 to February 6.  In the event that a Monday falls on a holiday, such as January 16, or in the event of inclement weather, the hunting activity will be moved to Wednesday of that week. Inclement weather on Wednesday would push the program to Friday.

Lenape and Nomahegan Parks will be closed on days when hunting is underway. However, no other parks will be closed during the conduct of this program. 

Program Guidelines detailing the deer management program can be found by visiting ucnj.org/deer. Residents with questions can contact Dan Bernier, Division of Park Environmental Services, at 908-789-3682 or via email at dbernier@ucnj.org

All costs for the conduct of this deer management program will be borne by the County of Union and the individual hunters. Some of the venison that will be derived from the program will be used to feed the needy and the homeless through the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
