    Is this strictly to decimate the wildlife? The timeline and restriction of some mechanical conveyance would complicate retrieval of carcass as a food source … conditions in the perimeters’ for hunting may not allow the butchering for weight distribution. I see alert on aircraft live-fire training scheduled to commence on the 19th.
