Ban on deer hunting is shot down

WESTON – A proposed hunting ban in Weston’s town forests failed with a show of hands by residents packed into a standing-room-only Town Meeting at Weston High School Wednesday night.

The ban proposed by local anti-hunting group Weston Deer Friends would have ended the town’s year-old deer management program that last fall allowed 26 prescreened bow hunters to set up tree stands in five narrowly defined stretches of conservation land in a bid to reduce what officials consider to be an overpopulation of deer.
