Deer hunting Lincoln

Fair game: Deer hunting returns to Lincoln

Over the objections of the town administrator and the police chief, deer hunting using archery equipment was approved by the Town Council Tuesday.

In a 3-2 vote, the council lifted the ban that’s been in place since 1994.

Town Council member Arthur Russo, who’d expressed no opinion through weeks of hearings and debate, was Tuesday’s swing vote.

He said he hoped hunters would reduce the deer population and thereby save drivers from serious accidents.

“Certainly the passage of this ordinance will not eradicate the deer population in Lincoln,” Russo said, but he added deer in Lincoln caused 55 car accidents last year and 33 as of September, according to the Department of Environmental Management.

He has personally had to stop his car to let deer cross on Cobble Hill Road, Carriage Drive and Musket Drive. And he’s concerned for his children’s safety when they visit his parents on Sherman Avenue.
