The only thing that Kenny Davidson needs to be hunting is the way out of City Hall.

He is the poorest excuse of a Mayor that our town has seen in decades & I only pray that during the next election, the voters are smart enough to vote him out.

In fact, if there was a way to do it, we need to give him back to the village that is missing it's idiot. We have more than enough here!

I think the only reason Kenny wants an Urban Deer Hunt is because that is the ONLY way that he might be able to get one.

It's a damned shame that our town is coming to this.

After reading his statements in the Record Delta, I do not think that the mayor thinks things through at all.

They mentioned hunting in the city park woods and letting people set up their stands there. Those woods have been used for a shortcut by kids for years and years. There are children cutting through there (even when the park is out of season) from the Shawnee Drive area and vice versa.

They also made a statement that they may have to make an ordinance to make it illegal to feed deer within the city limits if hunting does not thin out the population. Why not try the no-feeding idea first?

They could make an ordinance but most people who feed deer wont care about it. They will still do it pay the fine if they need to and go right back to it.

The thing in the paper must have been written a few weeks ago because it has since came out that they took city park out of consideration for hunting area.

I'm neither for or against the ordinance as it doesnt effect me either way but if it does pass not everyone can just go out and do it. You will need to go to a class and pass a test to show you know what the rules are and that you can shoot a bow.

People who usually shoot deer with an arrow and only injure it are people who just take a bow out and think they can do it without practicing to know they can do it or not.

The only thing more stupid than the urban deer hunt is the 4 way traffic stops.

I also think this is absurd! I would rather have a high deer population than people in my neighborhood "hunting".

I have heard that it's only the Mayor & a couple of his buddies that are wanting to hunt the deer. That's a damn shame. Sounds to me like the "honorable" Mr Davidson doesn't have an honorable bone in his body.

He also comes across as sounding like those City Boys who go on hunting trips out west to places like Montana & Wyoming where, for a big fee, you can "hunt" animals that are kept in herds on farms for just that purpose.

IMO any person who does that is a pathetic excuse for a human being.

Is anyone going to try to do anything to stop this from happening? What can we legally do?

My suggestion is for everyone that is opposed to this to put one of those small bright orange "No Hunting" sign in their front lawns. It would make a statement....especially up and down Kanawha Street.

Someone is passing a petition around. My friend was asked to sign it at work.

I also love the "No Hunting" sign idea.

I have not seen enough deer in city limits to even be worrying about this. Just another reason for the rednecks to get to hunt more deer for a longer time frame. Just something else to keep their minds off the work that really needs done.

The urban deer hunt proposal has officially been taken off the table. It was a stupid idea in the first place.

I've always heard that one is judged by the company that one keeps. That said, anyone who is found to be keeping company with a criminal like Shon Butler deserves everything that is coming their way.
