Nearly 75 percent of respondents to a survey taken by a Hopewell Township group to study the locale's deer situation said that "deer cause many problems and solutions are needed."
And this is from hundreds of replies that showed only 10 percent of these folks hunt deer.
The basic conclusion of the group, which it has recommended to the township committee, is that a permanent deer task force be put in place, with funding of course, and that there are too many deer and too few places to hunt them.
We'll have a more detailed report in a future print column.

Just received a copy of the Hunterdon Anglers newsletter. Great job for initial efforts. Lots of color photos, fishing reports on the Valley, how-to articles, etc.
The new club was featured in the Trentonian several weeks ago in the print version of the outdoor column.
The new outfit is soliciting members who want to participate in a club that is open to all and has a "share the knowledge" motto and attitude when it comes to techniques and fishing spots. Beginners and those who want to learn more about fishing Round Valley and Spruce Run reservoirs are encouraged to join.
For info on the club e-mail prez Ed Harabin at or board member Jim Stabile at
