People do your homework before you start looking like idiots. All personnel that will be hunting in the Buffer Zone are required to go through a safety class at Sunny Point and are required to go through the NC Hunters Safety course.

As others have already commented that arrows will not travel as far as a bullet. Bow hunting is a safe way to thin the population of deer to prevent diseases. When the population is overwhelmed, the deer will starve, died and cause diseases in which insect transmit to you. If you control deer population you can better control ticks which carry Lyme disease...this should be a no-brainer.

Now lets talk about the accidents that deer can cause: The North Carolina Department of Transportation estimates nearly 20,000 auto/deer collisions a year resulting in more than 5,000 injuries and an average property damage of over $3,000. Nationally, there are more than 150 fatalities a year from such accidents. I can think of better ways to spend $3,000!!!!!!!

And finally the Mayor knew what was going on. It was his responsibility to inform his residents. I know there have been meetings between Sunny Point and Kure Beach government....get involved in your government Kure Beach residents and you would know this!!!!!
