Be alert: deer hunting season has started

by Kathleen Coyle

For residents who take to the woods or drive on the roads, please note that the deer-hunting season opened October 13. Carlisle is in zone ten, and the legal hunting dates are as follows:

October 13 to November 22 Archery season

December 1 to December 13 Shotgun season

December 15 to December 31 Black powder or muzzle loader season

Hunting is illegal in Carlisle except on private property, and then only when the hunter has on his person written permission from the owner of the property.

Drivers should be especially alert at dawn and dusk for deer running across the road. They have other things on their minds.

Article 5 of the Warrant for next Monday's Special Town Meeting asks the town to authorize the Board of Selectmen to sign a five-year contract with Wheelabrator North Andover, Inc. for disposal of solid waste from Carlisle's transfer station, after the current contract expires in 2005. ...more
