Deer hunt proposal dropped

TREMONT — A resident who earlier this month approached selectmen about the possibility of a limited archery season for deer hunting within the town has indicated he no longer will pursue that goal.

Marc Fink’s proposal gained a lukewarm reception from the three selectmen present at the Dec. 1 meeting. Still, those members decided to wait for a full board before making any decision.

On Monday, the interim town manager presented the board with a Dec. 2 email from Fink.

In the email, Fink states that he decided not to continue advocating for a hunt because, after discussing the matter with selectmen, he has “realized that such a proposal realistically won’t be embraced or instituted.” The board, he wrote, is against any management plan for the town’s deer population. A second reason, he wrote, is that the hunters who said they would support such a proposal failed to show up at the meeting.
