Weston selectmen vote to allow bow hunting for deer on town-owned conservation land


The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Monday night to allow bow hunting for deer on town-owned conservation land as a way to cull the town’s burgeoning deer population. Archers will be allowed to hunt in selected conservation areas during the state’s deer-hunting season, which runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 31 this year. The Conservation Commission outlined regulations that will govern bow hunting in Weston, in addition to state regulations. The regulations will limit the number of archers allowed to hunt in Weston, require hunters to pass a proficiency test, and give the commission the right to cancel hunting at any time for any reason, among other things.
