SWAT team to help control Fairfax deer


(James M. Thresher/FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)

Shotgun and muzzleloader hunters can apply for a lottery spot in a series of managed hunts. Archers can apply in a similar lottery. And police SWAT teams participate in a special sharpshooting program.

The deer management programs begin next month, and public meetings offering information for the archery hunts begin Tuesday evening in Annandale.

Last year’s program harvested 815 deer, the most since the program began in 1998. The archery hunt was responsible for a majority of the harvest.
