The Township's Deer Management Program will
run from Saturday, October 9, 2021 through Saturday, January 29,
2022. Abington Deer Management will be conducting controlled deer hunts in open space properties owned by the Township.
These hunts have been conducted for the past five (5) years by skilled and trained archers. There are no guns involved. Signs will be posted in areas where the hunts are taking place during this period. Here are the maps of the designated hunting areas.
In addition to the dangers deer pose to drivers, deer damage our trees and are carriers of Lyme disease.
If you missed it, read more and a list of Frequently Asked Questions in the Deer Management spotlight on our most recent newsletter.
We believe that these hunts are in the best interest and safety of our residents and visitors. For further information, please contact our Public Works Superintendent, Chris Clewell at 215-635-4600, ext. 366.
