2014 Nuisance Deer Harvest Permits

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is working cooperatively with our community to lower the deer numbers in a manner that is safe, effective and acceptable to most residents. Nuisance Deer Harvest Permits allow landowners within the Town limits to receive special permits authorizing hunters chosen by the landowner to harvest antlerless deer on their property during the legal deer hunting season. Permit numbers will be determined by DNR. Please contact the Town Office to express your interest in obtaining permits. Property Identification Numbers are required to apply. Archery hunters interested in helping landowners remove deer from their lands, can contact the Bow Hunters Association of New Brunswick through, or call John Craft at 847-1209. The purpose of this list is to provide the names of bow hunters to landowners, at the landowners request.
