These folks that are trying to stop the shoot are nuts! Like a friend of mine said, walking around the woods at night where the deer are to prevent the shooters from firing is like someone standing on the runway at Hartsfield trying to prevent a plane from taking off...sooner or later, something bad is gonna happen. These folks are running on Emotion. They feed the deer, sometimes even name them....they treat them as pets on their property....sick, sick, sick!

You, Mr. Nuccel are sick, sick, sick!!!!! Most of the people that live @ Bent Tree moved up here for the wildlife. If we wanted to hear guns, we could move to Atlanta. We wanted a vote to cull the deer and the Board denied us that opportunity. Even with 400+ signatures. So mind your own business!
