They cull deer in Irondiquoit , NY by using bowhunters . The town used to pay off duty cops to shoot them over bait piles but it was costing the town too much . If they got the deer numbers down too quick , there goes the gravey pay . I always thought they should have paid the cops only when they shot a deer .
Anyway , they opened it up to Bow Hunters a few years ago . You need to shoot a special score to get certified and you are placed in a designated spot . I think (but not sure) that the bowhunters are allowed to hunt between 8 am - 12 noon .
It has been working for the town ..........
this is an awesome way to do it would love to see it adopted in other states and areas
