Controlled Deer Hunt Planned for Early 2016

The NC Wildlife Resources Commission recently completed an updated deer population estimate in Emerald Isle, and has recommended that the Town remove 30 - 50 deer from the local population this winter.  EIPD officers will utilize bow-and-arrow to take deer from public right of ways and other public properties during overnight hours on weeknights only in January (and potentially in February also).  These are the same protocols used successfully in January 2015. All deer meat will be donated to the Hope Mission in Morehead City, and will be used to feed the hungry in our county.
