HUNTING


Kingwood Township has several areas that are open to the public and suitable for deer hunting. Enjoyment of the land and the safety of our visitors is our primary concern. The Kingwood Township Committee allows deer hunting in Horseshoe Bend Park and the Ukarish Property (KTUP) in order to provide for better land management to restore damaged ecosystems without fear that excessive deer browse will make it impossible for native plants to return.
