Hilltop Deer Hunt Starts Today


Share post:

Essex County’s hunt to cull the deer population moves to Verona’s Hilltop Reservation and the Eagle Rock Reservation today.

The hunt at those locations will continue on Tuesdays February 7, 14 and 21 and Thursdays February 9, 16 and 23. Ten hunters will be deployed at the Hilltop and former Essex County Hospital site, the largest group at any location because the county believes that the deer population remains so large there.

The Hilltop will be closed to hiking and recreation on hunt days, as will much of Eagle Rock (you can still get to the Highlawn Pavilion). Fairview Avenue will be shut from Durrell Street to Myrtle Avenue in Cedar Grove, so watch for detour signs.
