It's a Nat Park, plus they potentially have to be moved vast distance by non-motorized means....meh, no

Pay for fees, pay for your own equipment and ammo, shoot, clean, pack out and then turn everything in. Maybe getting something back after it is over. Yeah no.

After this culling is done and the herd is at safe number to be healthy on the size of the range they inhabit, you would think in the future it would be more cost effective and easier to just hit some of the younger males with a dart gun as needed and snip snip.

They would want to hit dominant and mature herd bulls so that only blanks would be fired, young males don't get any.

Check out the rules. Full background check needed. Must work for the forest service for 5 days before the shoot. Must use non lead ammo. That rules out the classic buffalo gun the 45/70, but allows a 7.62x39 Russian. You read where the natives get the buffalo parts left over? Indians always get short end of stick. An experienced deer/elk hunter would have little problem sneaking up on the herd. IMO, there is no fair chase in this.
