Pocopson Township has an active deer management program designed to safely curtail the deer overpopulation in our area. A team of dedicated, highly trained volunteers hunts on Township property as well as some private properties where the owner has given the Township hunting rights.
The Deer management Committee are fully licensed and adhere to the rules and regulations of the Pennsylvania State Game Commission. All deer kills are tagged, harvested and processed by licensed butchers.
Hunting is by bow and arrow as well as shotgun, depending on the applicable season. All hunted properties and hunt dates are indicated below. Signs are posted on all public properties.
All hunters on the Pocopson Deer Management Committee carry Pocopson ID cards with them at all times. Vehicles used during the hunt days are clearly marked by Pocopson placards posted on the windshield.
