Jersey is one of six counties added this year to the list and several Jersey County hunters, who have had their applications in for deer hunting permits for a number of years may see their hopes realized this season. Two deer have been killed this summer in western Jersey areas by automobiles. The season will also be opened in Greene County this year. Opening of the season in the additional counties is based on the theory that the deer should be scattered by hunting to reduce prospective crop damage that herds might create. Begins Again COHOES, N.
