HUNTING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY
We work with private landowners to connect them with responsible hunters to reduce deer populations Island-wide by targeting residential areas, a preferred habitat of our deer population.

Community Deer Cooler / Venison Donation Project
We are working on an annual program with Island Grown Initiative (IGI) and the Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society (MVAS) to increase the number of deer culled during bow and shotgun season on the Vineyard. The program includes a Community Deer Cooler that allows registered hunters to hang deer for up to 10 days (per deer) and IGI’s Venison Donation Program that provides high-quality, protein-rich meals to Islanders in need.
