Archery Season to start soon UPDATED

Archery season begins on September 17, 2016, thirty minutes before sunrise until thirty minutes after sunset with the killing to occur Mondays through Saturdays on private properties (locations unknown) and on public properties (the conservation district along Connor Road, the Mt. Lebanon Golf Course, Robb Hollow Park, Public Works, McNeilly Park, with Twin Hills Park hunting to begin a week later.) This will continue through January 27, 2017 with a break from November 27 until December 25, 2016.

Tony DeNicola is being paid $9,000 from our tax dollars to "manage" the volunteer archers to kill on twelve private "donated" properties (locations unknown) and the public properties listed above. (The "management" fee was only to occur last year, Year 1). The Pennsylvania Office of Open Records ruled twice that no properties are being "donated," merely, these twelve properties owners are only granting temporary access to their properties. All are benefitting by receiving the meat, if so desired, as well as less vegetation being eaten and a reduction of deer feces on their properties, both being cited for reasons to kill the deer. Mt. Lebanon resident Judge Terrence O'Brien ruled that the properties are in fact being donated, even though no property titles were transferred.

Update September 9, 2016 9:40 AM Mt. Lebanon just posted the "No Hunting" signs at all the entrances to Rockwood Park.
