Just wondering if the college population generally supports all hunting related activities? Why is the word 'hunt' never used in any of the stories? Are the 'sharpshooters' considered hunters or cullers? What will be done with the meat harvested from some 900 deer? If it's not utilized it seems a terrible waste to not let local hunters in to do the job and keep their kills.
