Radnor Township: Rabid Raccoon Found at Willows

Meet a Radnor Deer Hunter

Austin Hepburn is part of a private bow hunting group helping to thin out the township’s deer herds.

 

Wayne resident and bow hunter Austin Hepburn is working to thin out Radnor Township’s deer herds.

Then he is using his winnings to work on his cooking skills, reports Main Line Media News.

“I am fascinated with cooking,” Hepburn told the newspaper. “I’m trying to become a better cook through sauce.”

"The venison bones were from deer he recently hunted in Radnor Township on private lands and butchered in his garage. He is part of a 15-member bow-hunting group culling deer in the township. So far 54 deer have been harvested by the volunteer bow hunters," Main Line Media News writes.

It is great that we are culling deer to a more healthy level in Radnor. Both the forests and our streets will benefit from this work that Austin and his friends are doing. Maybe Austin and the others would consider donating some of the meat instead of keeping it all for themselves. There are plenty of families struggling in our current economy in our township and beyond. I believe that the deer culled in Valley Forge were donated to food banks. If this effort is going to be sold as a "public service" then it should be a public service, not a special privilege that only a few are granted. There are plenty of people who would like the opportunity to hunt these lands for meat for their families. How does one join the group?

One of the reasons the deer population is much higher now is that all the wolves that used to be around here are gone.
