Morris County Park Commission's 2017/2018  Deer Management Program. 

Schooleys Mountain Park is included in this years program. This program and its implementation are consistent with the regulations of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.  

Please note this is not a recreational hunt. The controlled management program is being conducted to help reduce and maintain deer populations at level that allow for the re-establishment of native plant communities within the park system that have been severely damaged by deer overbrowsing. These communities are critical for the sustainability of our preserved areas and for the support of native wildlife species. The Morris County Park Commission has attempted to reduce the public inconvienience of park closings by limiting the number of dates on which the parks will be closed to the minimum number that we feel can ensure a successful program.
