The deer population in Tredyffrin is very large and has caused many problems from property damage to traffic accidents. There is no "quick fix" for this issue; however, Tredyffrin Township has authorized bow hunting by the Chester Valley Deer Management Association and the Stony Run Archers Association in designated Township Parks:

  • Cedar Hollow Park
  • Mill Road Park
  • Radbill Park
  • Richards Road Open Space
  • Crabby Creek Park
  • Country Gate Open Space
  • Swedesford Road Open Space
  • Croton Road Open Space

Deer Harvesting Referral Program for Private Property

In the interest of providing landowners with a positive solution to a growing problem, Tredyffrin Township has initiated a deer harvesting referral program. Tredycffrin Township does not recommend or sponsor any one group. All groups listed in the Township referral program carry liability insurance and are proficiency tested. Anyone interested in these services is urged to contact one or more of the groups on this list for further information.
