Privately Owned Firearms Directive

Animal Waste

Animal waste, such as hides, heads and legs, have been found disposed improperly. All animal waste MUST BE BAGGED and disposed in waste containers located on the south side of building 1521 (next to the store). DO NOT put bagged animal waste in any other container such as those near the range which is for range waste only.

Numerous deer remains have been found unbagged and improperly disposed of.

A recommendation has been put forward to implement an additional membership fee of $20 per year for hunters who desire to use the cooler. Recently, there was a refrigeration repair charge of $600.
