DEER POPULATION CHALLENGE & SURVEY
- Research and discussions on our community deer population
situation have been ongoing for a while.
- RENA Board obtained information on deer population prevention
and ratification from Mr. M. Andy Pedersen, bow hunter/writer
with 48 years of experience and Mr. Jeffery C. Bossart, Environmental
Program Manager, Naval Support Activity South Potomac, Naval
Support Indian Head, Maryland (and Dahlgren).
- Mr. Pedersen and Mr. Bossart provided RENA Board with the
- Deer population can be reduced, but never eliminated;
- Once a program is started, it must be continued for effectiveness;
- Lyme disease can never be eliminated;
- Ticks can be reduced, but never eliminated.
- Agencies or communities may hire a “sharp shooter” for $150.00
to $1,000 per animal or employ a bow hunter who usually does
not charge for their services. Bow Hunters usually donate excess
deer to butcher shops for processing and delivery to food pantries
- Deer hunters must have written permission from the landowners
of properties on which they are hunting. They must have permission
from all occupied dwellings within 150 yards of where they are
- If a wounded deer runs onto other properties, then the hunter
needs the permission of every property they cross to track the
deer. In our community, the 150 yards would probably cover
– 8 homes. The hunters must also be licensed by the state or
local jurisdiction where deer hunting is taking place.
- Do you have concerns about the health issues (Lyme disease), landscape damage, traffic hazards, or other problems associated with deer?
- Would you be willing to have some of the deer killed by bow hunters?
- Would you give written permission for deer hunting by licensed bow hunters on or within 150 yards of your property?
Please participate in the survey

Community Notes and Reminders
- There will be NO leaf vaccuming by the
county. Please bag your leaves and set them out for yard waste
collection on Wednesdays
- Sewer overflows are a problem. Please can the
- In snow emergenices,
please park in your driveway if possible. This makes
the county snow plow/snow removal easier and more efficient.
It also reduces the possibility of being plowed in and hit by
a sliding vehicle. If, however, you are unable to park in a
driveway, the county code states that all vehicles should
"...park on the even-numbered side of the street
until the odd-numbered side of the street is cleared."
If vehicles park on both sides of the street, it makes snow
removal AND Snow plowing very difficult.
