Deer Hunt Closes South Mountain Reservation
South Mountain Reservation is Closed Between Millburn and West Orange for a Deer Hunt.
Don’t plan on driving through the South Mountain on Tuesdays and Thursdays from January 29-February 28, 2008. Trained Marksmen Will Be On Site to take care of the “Deer Problem.”
One of my fondest memories growing up in Short Hills was going to the Deer Paddock with my parents just off South Orange Ave between Old Short Hills Road and Brookside Drive. I loved to see “Bambi” and feed he and his brothers and sisters.
Now the deer are everywhere. The Essex County Deer Management Program is “taking care of the situation.” Needless to say, neighbors in Millburn, Short Hills, Maplewood, South Orange and West Orange are taking strong stands…on both sides.
What do you think?
