Default Catching deer by darting

Whats your guys view on darting deer. I have to dart 8 deer every year. To test for TB. Would this be considered hunting? They are in a 25 ac. thick wood area. Pros cons

Thanks
B-Rad

I would consider that necessary testing but not hunting.

I think I'm with hm. Its not fair chase so that makes it not so for me. It could be a kinda cool thing to do and could be viewed, i guess by some, as hunting. but there is a large under tone of its part of someones job. If someone asked me if I wanted to give it a try I would say heck yeah, but hunting ehhhhhh its a stretch.

This is probably the most dumbest question ever but when you dart them is it tranquilizers which sedates them long enough to do the testing or are they actually killed by the darts in order for testing. You all can get in line to kick me if you want to.
