The company says the rights-of-way are “electricity superhighways” but they’re also a welcoming habitat for deer, birds, and other wildlife.

“With the popularity of hunting on the rise, and space to hunt on the decline, it is especially important for people to be aware of all activities going on around them while outside,” said Bruce J. Bolger, Director of Safety at Northeast Utilities, parent company of NStar. “We’re happy the public and hunters enjoy our rights-of-way and we want to make sure everyone out there is safe.”

It also said that most NStar rights-of-way are on private property, so people must observe laws and regulations regarding landowner’s rights.
