REFERENDUM PETITION UPDATE - BOW HUNTING OF DEER - This afternoon Referendum Petitions were submitted to the Clerk of Council from resident Lucy McKernon, that may require a measure be placed on the ballot to overturn Councilâ€™s Ordinance to permit bow hunting of deer in Seven Hills. To the best of our knowledge so far, 476 valid signatures are needed. 627 signatures were obtained. The petitions will be sent to the Board of Elections to verify that enough qualified electors signed. If the petitions are certified, we believe that this issue cannot be voted on until the next General Election in November, 2017. The Ordinance Council passed allowing bow hunting cannot go into effect until the voters elect to vote down the Referendum. To our knowledge, this is the first time in the history of our City that a Referendum Petition has been submitted. Information is still sketchy but we believe the explanation in this post will be correct. Long story short, if the signatures are certified, this Referendum Petition stops bow hunting of deer for over a year. Interesting fact: This Referendum Petition was circulated by residents of Lyndhurst, Brecksville, Parma, and North Royalton.
This is a crappy night time picture
But there were 7 does when I took the picture
But the amount of deer walking though peoples yards and lounging in their gardens is crazy
My friend has a .83 acre property and house in a development, he regularly sends me images of bucks rutting in his yard, sparing, chasing does during the rut.
Deer that won't even move from his driveway to allow him to park in his garage.
