Treasure Lake Wildlife Committee was formed to address wildlife concerns and the growing over population of the deer herd in our suburban community.

 

Hunting

Hunting is available in the Pennsylvania State Gamelands, adjacent to Treasure Lake.

Wildlife Management

Welcome to the Treasure Lake Wildlife Committee page.

The Wildlife Committee was formed to address wildlife concerns and the growing over population of the deer herd in our suburban community. Treasure Lake property had not been hunted for some 40 years and as a result the deer herd grew out of control. The deer population causes extensive property damage in addition to severely degrading the forest that surrounds our property. Regeneration of trees and other plant life is nonexistent. The deer themselves also suffered. Many deer have died of starvation in the harsh winter months because no food was present. Property owner’s shrubbery soon became the target of starving deer.

In the fall of 2006, the first archery management program was conducted in Treasure Lake with the approval of the Treasure Lake Board of Directors. This was the first step in controlling the deer herd within our community.

In 2009, the Board of Directors approved an additional management program allowing flintlock primitive firearms. Because of the over population problem, Treasure Lake falls under the PA Game Commission’s DMAP program for herd control. An additional number of antlerless permits are available based on the management plan to control the deer herd.

The Committee enlists the help of Penn State University’s Cooperative Extension Service to perform a pellet count and browse study every other year. This study projects herd size and area density which directs us in our harvest planning. This study is also a measurement of the effectiveness of the management hunts.

Even though our goal is to control the deer herd; our primary concern is for the safety of the residents in Treasure Lake. Both management programs take place in pre determined areas of Treasure Lake. The flintlock program takes place in the most remote, secluded 1200 acres in the Lake. Specific participant rules are in place to ensure there are no hunter / resident conflicts. The Committee takes this responsibility very seriously.

Management programs such as this require yearly participation and monitoring. This is the most cost effective and scientifically proven means to control an over population problem. The Committee is proud to say the cost to Treasure Lake residents is zero. With the support of the TLBOD and the residents of Treasure Lake we will continue to control the deer herd in our community.

In addition to facilitating the management programs, the Wildlife Committee also assists the TLBOD with other concerns where wildlife is involved.

If you have any question concerning the Wildlife Committee or the management program, you may email questions to ajdsylvis@verizon.net

The Committee would also like to remind residents that feeding deer and other wild animals in Treasure Lake is against the by-laws set forth. Feeders, salt blocks, mineral licks and similar feeding stations are not permitted and subject to a fine. These types of devices draw deer, bear and other animals to the residential areas.
