Archers Will Take Aim at Crum Woods Deer
Beginning next Friday, October 11, Swarthmore College will for the tenth consecutive year conduct a public hunt of the deer population in the college’s Crum Woods, on the west (i.e. Blue Route) side of the creek. This year’s archery hunting will occur in the woods during the college’s fall break from October 11 to 19, between October 28 and November 8, and over Thanksgiving weekend (November 27-30).
Signs will be clearly posted in the woods to indicate where and when hunting will take place. Hunters will only hunt in pre-approved areas and must abide by all rules and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The archers will be active mainly in the early morning and late afternoon and evening hours. If you encounter any problems, please call Swarthmore Public Safety.
