WISCONSIN NEWS: Deer hunt on UW-Green Bay campus

According to WBAY-TV, a special deer hunt is planned for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus. The chancellor said the hunt was needed because of the growing deer population on the campus. There were concerns about car-deer collisions, an elevated risk of disease like Lyme Disease, and other problems.

The archers are part of the Green Bay/Brown County deer control program that began in 2003. All have passed archery proficiency tests and have been approved by the university. Archers will hunt from stands at least 100 yards from trails.

Editors note: Gary Fewless must be pleased.
