Crum Woods Deer Cull Continues

As in the previous seven winters, Swarthmore College will conduct a deer cull in its woods along Crum Creek.

Beginning shortly and continuing into March, trained sharpshooters licensed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission will hunt in prescribed areas at times of low traffic in the woods. These areas will be posted “No Trespassing” for the duration of the cull, and all trails near the active area will be closed.

Deer overpopulation remains a threat both to the long-term regeneration of Crum Woods, and to the safety of users of the woods and drivers on adjacent roads.
