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.

  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

  3. Are you not regeler people, yes we are supposed to learn and we do learn, and we learn alot. We sometimes need a break FIY.

  4. It was Yeshiva’s in cross and Massachusetts I spoke to the hunters saw where they were…. and to all those other people with the crazy comments bochurim are slowed to have a brake and they were walking through to cut through a path (shortcut) idk abt you but bochurim don’t have to learn 24/7 there’s something called brakes you were also a bochur

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
