(( Eddie Burnette and Tommy Dodd are hunting deer.. in the middle of one of Virginia's largest cities.
The two comprise Lynchburg's wildlife management program.. a year- round effort aimed at reducing the size of the Hill City's deer population.
They patrol areas where deer have caused car accidents or where homeowners have suffered property damage from roaming herds.
The program has never experienced an accident, but some residents told city council last week they feel they're as much at risk from the hunting program as they are from the deer.

But police say every precaution is taken to PREVENT mistakes.
[natsot 9:21:00]

[RUNS01]
The department and the wildlife specialists scout out every location where a permit is issued.. and the hunters never fire a shot if there's even the slightest chance a stray bullet could hit something other than its intended target.

On a given night, these two men might see dozens of deer, but never pick up their rifles.

In its six years, Lewis says the program has drastically reduced the number of deer- related car accidents in the city and has also put more than 11 tons of venison on the plates of needy people across the area.
City council may re- examine the program's effectiveness later this week.
