The Public is invited to comment on Resolution No. 2020-08; Authorizing Deer Management Bow Hunting Sessions pdf that was introduced at the June Town Council meeting. Written comment should be emailed in advance to the Town Clerk ([email protected]). Live public comment will be accepted at the July online Town Council meeting on July 13, 2020, at 7:15 p.m.
Last year, for the first time, the Town Council authorized deer management bow-hunting, and committed to reporting on the results and seeking comment prior to authorizing additional bow-hunts. Results during the course of the hunting session were disclosed to the Town throughout the fall (a total of 14 deer were harvested). The Woods Committee has evaluated the session in the context of our deer management goals and determined that another bow-hunting session should take place this fall.
Copies of the introduced resolution are available on the Town website; www.washingtongrovemd.org or upon request to the Town Clerk, phone 301-926-2256 or email [email protected]
