That post card you got yesterday about the dates for Essex County’s deer hunt at the Hilltop Reservation? Forget about it. After county decided to send the mailer, it decided to cancel the hunt.

“For the second consecutive year, we have decided to cancel our annual Deer Management Program because of the Coronavirus pandemic,” Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. said in a statement today. “We are focusing our attention on staffing our vaccination and testing sites, bringing our mobile outreach program to schools, houses of worship and community centers and making sure our residents have access to programs that keep them safe, healthy and protected.”

Essex County has conducted the deer hunt program since 2008 to reduce the number of deer in the South Mountain and Hilltop reservations. It has also sought to restore park landscapes damaged by over-browsing by planting native plants in several areas.
