Is there hunting going on in the Nagog Conservation land?

Today I saw a navy pick-up truck with a man in camourflage clothes parked in the Acton well site on Route 27, just before Great Road.

Last year, in the same location, I saw a similar man crossing Route 27 carrying a rifle.

This is not safe for Acton residents.

Can't believe there has been no discussion or interest in this topic.
The location is Route 27 North, just before the Route 2 intersection.
The hunter parks on the right in the Acton Conant 1 well area. He crosses over Route 27 (with his rifle) and goes into the woods which I believe is adjacent to the Nagog Hill conservation land.
Anyone have anymore information about what is going on?

I'm curious about this also. The hunter walks right past our house in the woods. What are the rules about hunting on conservation land in Acton?

If you see the hunter near your home you should immediately call the police. Hunting is not allowed in Acton.

A woman was killed by a "hunter" in Norton over the weekend. The hunter thought the woman was a deer!

Oh, thanks so much for replying to my comment.

the women was not killed. Get your story straight. Is there a town ordinance in Acton that outlaws hunting? If not, he's allowed to hunt where ever he wants including private property if it is not tagged as "no trespassing" Not sure about conservation land.

The most recent information I've found was from 2005, which said that hunting was allowed in Acton on private land, but not on conservation land. But I haven't been able to find the current laws online.
