Deer hunters should take more care

To the Editor:

One of my morning rituals is walking my dog from my Lagoon Heights home in Oak Bluffs down to the Lagoon boat area at the foot of Hudson Avenue. On Saturday morning, in amongst the usual piles of shells from scallopers that are left at the foot of the road, we came across an intact deer head still attached to a stripped bare rib cage and various other deer parts scattered about.

I’m not sure of the correct and legal method for deer hunters to dispose of the unused portions of carcasses, but I’m pretty sure this wasn’t it. It made for a pretty grotesque scene. I ask that Island hunters act more responsibly in dealing with their garbage.
