Sharpshooters to cull Will County deer

February 01, 2011 at 06:21 PM

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — The Will County Forest Preserve District says it will begin using sharpshooters to cull deer from its land next week.

The killing of deer begins Monday in McKinley Woods near Channahon, and will be extended to six other locations before it ends next month.

Preserve officials tell the (Tinley Park) SouthtownStar the deer will be shot Monday through Thursday nights when the preserves are closed to the public.

Spotlights will be used to light an area prior to shooting, and only does will be shot. All the venison will be donated to area food banks.

Authorities expect to kill about 350 deer through the program.

Why don’t they let bow hunters take some deer out of each area?

Ok Let’s hear it brain surgeon Bill. I’m sure you have some uneducated, ignorant reason for your useless babble about the folks in Will County.

Only does taken?  Haven’t antlered deer been dropping their head gear for awhile?  Love to take a crack at “unmolested” deer.
