According to the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board:
The SRS emergency management programs have degraded over the last few years in part due to limited resources and lack of staffing. Although DOE-SR and DOE Headquarters personnel conducted oversight of emergency management during this time, these interactions were not sufficient to prevent this degradation.http://www.dnfsb.gov 12/22/2015 (doc at bottom)

But, Deer Hunting Still Allowed at SRS and Japanese, German and Swiss Plutonium May Be on its Way:

Perhaps high turn-over is related to Welfare to work and/or excess radiation exposure of workers? Those on welfare employed at SRS: https://dss.sc.gov/hires-dss.pdf

Note: Unlike Sellafield, the Savannah River Nuclear site is huge. Whether or not the deer hunt with dog packs increases or degrades site safety for the non-deer, we cannot say for certain. But, it is strange indeed. Hunters are separated by a large distance, so it appears like a possible terrorist risk.
