DCR Watershed Hunting

Find out about hunting on DCR Division of Water Supply Protection property in the Quabbin Reservoir and Wachusett Reservoir watersheds.

The Quabbin Reservoir, Ware River, Wachusett Reservoir, and Sudbury Reservoir watersheds provide drinking water to 3 million people. The goal of DCR’s Division of Water Supply Protection deer hunt programs is to reduce the impacts of deer browsing in these four watersheds in order to have a healthy, resilient, diverse forest that continuously protects water quality.
