Recently police warned residents to look out for deer when driving. Now they are warning us to look out for the hunters pursuing them.
Yesterday, the Southborough Police Department shared the following reminder on their Facebook page:
A reminder to all of our residents: Today is the first day of shotgun season for deer hunting in Massachusetts.
The shotgun season runs from Dec. 2nd until Dec. 14th. We typically receive a few phone calls from concerned residents hearing gunshots in the area, so we wanted you to have this bit of knowledge beforehand.
Also, please use extra care and caution when entering wooded areas (we recommend wearing highly visible colors), especially with children and/or pets.
If you have any questions regarding hunting regulations, the Massachusetts Fish & Wildlife has a website that you can check out.
Here is a link to the site: www.eregulations.com/massachusetts/huntingandfishing/general-hunting-regulations/
As always, please make sure to report any suspicious or unusual activity. Thank you.
