Considering that I live in a state and a game zone that allows baiting, I find it offensive that the term slaughter was used in a previous post. I am appalled; however, any time sharp shooters (usually state paid snipers) are allowed to shine and kill deer when many licensed hunters would happily provide the service free of charge. Hilton Head is one of the areas similar to the one described by Sierra, and as a former resident of Fernandina Beach, I've seen the same attitudes towards hunters displayed at Amelia Island Plantation and Summer Beach; either of which could very well be where Sierra's mother lives. I'm not an archery hunter, but I certainly agree that those hunters should be allowed to kill the deer instead of paying for the exterminations. What makes a high priced residential area any better than agricultural areas where predation permits are issued and the farmers are allowed to shoot the deer at night with spot lights? Most of the farmers in this area, simply invite local hunters to come out and take part when those type of DNR sanctioned predation hunts are allowed. All of the deer killed, used to be required to be left where they dropped; but finally the SC DNR realized the waste and now allow the deer to be picked up and the meat donated to orphanages and homeless shelters.........even the prisons and county jails.
