Yeshivas in Lakewood tell Bachurim to stay out of forest during hunting season after frightening incident

Yeshivas in Lakewood have told Bachruim to stay from the forests during the hunting season.

Bachurim told TLS they were advised to stay out of the forest after a hunter reportedly told a Bachur he almost mistook him for a moving deer in the forest.

The New Jersey hunting season runs between September and January.

  • Yanky says:

    Scary, Boucherim should be learning.

  • Sidewalker says:

    Hmm interesting. Conspiracy theory anyone?

  • Smartypants says:

    People chill!!! A lot of Yeshivas are near forests like on cross st. So they takr walks during bain hasdorim. Why are people so busy looking for the negative? Be Happy there are bucharim the learn Torah and are holding up the world!!!

  • Judah says:

    Thank you “smartypants” for setting people straight.

    It’s a pity that some people sift out the negative. Look at the positive or just for what it is; like the other comment said, they take walks during their off time.

  • tomatoface says:

    If somebody doesn’t understand why those who learn need a “break” those people obviously haven’t ever really learned properly!

  • Shimmy b says:

  • Hunter says:

    Just sayin your boys can really get shot out there. I’m not gonna hold my fire just cuz they can’t keep themselves out of the woods.

  • Why Bb when u can C# ? says:

    Forests are crazy scary this time of yr. A woman was killed last week walking her dogs, when a hunter mistook her for a dear and shot her. No Jokes.

  • Abi azoi says:

    Hunter – you sound like a real nice guy. Salt of the earth. But hold my fire because a human might get hurt or killed? No way.

  • David says:

    Hunting should not be allowed in cities near residential areas are period.

  • eli says:

    Our Bachurim should be in a safe place! On the side of a road dressed in black, at night, at a busy intersection, half way in the street, with their finger out asking for a ride.

  • Me says:

    Something doesn’t make sense how could they hunt in a resedential area?! It gotta be illegal!

  • tomatoface says:

    Hunters, if you aren’t sure if what your looking at is a deer or a human being hold your FIRE!
