Hunting Bylaw Committee Recommends 50 Permits
At their last meeting late last month (pictured), the Hunting Policy Committee agreed to recommend that a maximum of 50 total permits be issued to hunt on Board of Selectmen-owned land.
Interested hunters with permits would be able to choose preferred parcels, with parcels being divvied up until a density of one hunter per 10 acres is reached.
If the 50 permit maximum is not reached before the density limitation is reached, the remaining permit hunters can hunt on Selectmen-owned land with written permission of abutting homeowners.
The final proposal made by the committee will eventually go to the Board of Selectmen.

Words of Encouragement From Pastor Steve of the Lowell Assembly of God
Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interests of others.
Phil 2:4 NIV
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your He arts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7 (NIV)
