ONLY HUNTERS SCHEDULED BY THE WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN DEER HUNTING IN MENDHAM TOWNSHIP PARKLANDS. NO HUNTING WILL TAKE PLACE AT MOSLE PRESERVE OR INDIA BROOK PARK WHEN SPORT ACTIVITIES ARE IN PROGRESS ON PARK FIELDS.

Any Mendham Township resident interested in participating in the harvest of antlerless deer may contact the committee by emailing John Mallon at jmallon2@aol.com. *All hunters are required to attend the Fall Orientation Meeting.  We will also review our Neighbor Reach Out Program to Mendham Township property owners which is critical to reducing deer populations in some neighborhoods where the herds winter.  This allows us to walk through some properties without weapons and to drive the deer into the parks where they can be taken.  We also provide waivers to land owners to reduce any liablilty concerns.

The Morris County Park Commission's Hunt schedule has been posted.  This is not a recreational hunt, it is a controlled management program for the white tailed deer population. Any questions regarding the MCPC program contact Kelli Kovacevic at 973-829-8417.
