Mount Lebanon Deer Problems Mount

Here we go again.....

Resolving Mt Lebanon's Deer Management

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

It is clear that the writer doesn't understand deer, deer biology, sharpshooting, culling, or hunting.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Re: Mount Lebanon Deer Problems Mount

As ridiculous as that article is, I saw on the news today that they are discussing using archery hunters to harvest more deer there this fall. Don't know what the particulars of that are though.
Any plan that utilizes hunters as the primary control method is one that I am in favor of.

Re: Mount Lebanon Deer Problems Mount

The ML commissioners just approved the use of a group called White Buffalo to oversee the use of archers to come in and take some deer out during hunting season.


http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2015/07/1...eer-population/



MT. LEBANON (KDKA) — Mount Lebanon Commissioners approved with a vote of 4 to 1 moving ahead with a company that will oversee an archery hunt in an effort to attack the deer population.

A company called White Buffalo will set up the hunt.
The company president Tony DeNicola tells KDKA’s David Highfield that hunters will be carefully screened.
He says they’ll use about six with another six hunters as back-up.

DeNicola says they have to stay away from private homes unless they have permission of the homeowner.
Some members of the commission questioned whether enough deer would be killed to actually reduce the population without taking additional measures.

A controversial attempt to control the deer population with rifles earlier this year failed.

Representatives from White Buffalo will attend a commission meeting in September to explain the details of how the hunt will be conducted.

In the luck of the chase.

They must be living pretty good up there to have such concerns take such a priority/obsession in their lives.

Re: Mount Lebanon Deer Problems Mount

The WCO that got the cull permit for them told them it will not be reissued unless hunters are part of the solution.He spoke about it my sportsmans club.He agreed to it last year because there was not enough time to properly schedule a hunt.

One of the provisions of the permit used in the spring of the year requires that the permittee utilize a legal hunting program, where feasible, to qualify for deer control permits in future years.

All thats needed are some cooperative property owners and some skilled ethical bow hunters. We hunt around the safety zones in Fox Chapel and do it quite effectively. It's been working there for over 20 years.
