Mayor Kenny Davidson just won't listen to the residents of Buckhannon.

Just a couple of weeks after being told "NO" but many residents in the form of letters to the Editor, petitions, Speak out comments & even phone calls, he's still determined to kill the few Deer that occasionally grace the neighborhoods in Buckhannon.

What is it going to take to make him realize that he needs to leave this issue alone?

I would have hoped that Kenny would have gotten the message the last time. Now the gloves are OFF!

From this day forward, I will NOT support ANY member of CITY COUNCIL who votes in favor of this ridiculous event!

What I will be doing is devoting my time to finding someone, who will run against him for Mayor in June 2012.

Buckhannon needs a Mayor with a Brain & EARS & Kenny Davidson has now proven that he doesn't have EITHER.

Looks like I will have to initial my "No Hunting" campaign and start handing out "No Hunting" signs to those that are against it.

I know It's not popular, but I feel there is an overabundant amount of deer in Buckhannon.

There are too many deer everywhere. The solution would be to extend the length and limit of the hunting season and kills statewide for a few years.........And yes, I know deer migrate into safer areas, but the numbers will eventually go down.

Buckhannon has always had a large deer population, but I do not buy into it being worse than it has been. I have lived in Buckhannon all of my life and still see the same numbers of deer in my neighborhood as I did 40 years ago.

I am all for blasting bullets in all directions till every deer is down. But deer in city limits should be let alone.Even an ignorant slob hunter as myself knows that.If you are against it just dont hunt. And when the the hunting dates arrive. Just spend the day chasing the deer away from potentional hunters.Thats what we do in deer season. Go into area before day light and chase the deer away into areas where we can mow em down with our semi auto's. But in this case you would be doing it to save the deer.I imagine the hunters must use bows. So just stroll around the woods drinking beer while singing and talking out loud that should do the trick. Or Hire carson yeager to do it.I find singing Michael Bolton song's at the top of your lungs annoy hunters the most.

Don't you know this is Kenny Davidson's way of keeping his name on the news? I hear he wants to run for County Commission.

The way you lessen a deer population, Is not extended seasons. The way you curb the population is to harvest mature doe deer. I would support an urban deer hunt if and only if it where open to antler-less deer only. I also believe there should be an ordinance against feeding deer within city limits, with hefty fines. There are way more deer in Buckhannon now than ever, I drive through the town every night about 1145- midnight after work. I am constantly having seer run out in front of me. Something needs done. Unfortunately the city limits of Buckhannon keep expanding which means more deer are not being hunted. I think an urban hunt for antler-less deer is in order and we will see a large decline in two 2 three years.

There is no way you can make a hunting season within the City safe. Especially bow hunting. No matter how good a person is there is always that one chance of hitting a human.

Or someone like this guy named john in our club. He gut shots the deer with a bow. Then you would have a wounded deer running through people's yards. How tacky would that be. A bunch of redknecks in camo following a blood trail through town.Bad idea just give the deer contraseptives.

Thing I keep seeing with the Urban hunt is everyone thinks it would have beeen everyone and their dog that owns a bow would have been out there hunting. The state has a program you have to go through and you have to hit a target so many times in a certain area before they would give out license to hunt to that person. Yes Im sure there is always a slight chance of an accident happening but it wouldn't be the town full of camo wearing rednecks running after wounded deer.

I think the people who are against the deer hunting in city limits, should be responsible for the damages they cause. Weather it's a flower garden, a vehicle, or even running through a business or home window.
