Deer hunt in town of Elizabeth on agenda

Administrators proposing hunt to deal with wildlife problems

KMGH - Elizabeth resident Terrill Gilbert's front porch is full of color, in spite of the deer that frequently dine here.

"They eat everything they can get their mouths around," said Gilbert. "They eat your flowers. They come up on my deck and eat the hanging baskets. They do what they want."

The town of Elizabeth is dealing with a major overpopulation of deer. There are estimated to be more than 200 deer that have taken up residence in the small Elbert County town.

Tuesday night, the Elizabeth Board of Trustees will take up the issue at their regularly scheduled meeting. Town administrators are recommending a limited bow hunt in town limits to help control the population.
