U.S. Fish Wildlife Opens 3 Wildlife Refuges in Massachusetts to Deer Hunting (ARCHERY ONLY) This is due in a large part to Massachusetts Bowhunters Assoc.
Several of our Officers and Directors attended several hearings that took place over a year ago. We testified on behalf of opening the refuges to deer hunting, We made a brief statement and answered many questions about archery hunting. U.S. Fish Wildlife Project Leader Libby Herland kept in contact with the MBA and we believe with our input and her support this was passed. The 3 Wildlife Refuges are Assabet River, Great Meadows, and Oxbow. Hunting will begin, Oct 2005 and will be closely monitored.
