not meaning to sidetrack the discussion, GUEST, but there is actually quite a lot to hunt in the city. I live in an affluent, heavily populated suburb of a major metropolitan area, and our county has a huge deer population-there were about 2000 auto/deer collisions last year. It is not uncommon to see five or six roaming through neighborhoods at dusk, ravaging gardens, shrubs, and ornamentals.
Though our UK friends may not know that our state has stringent regulations on the use of firearms, the deer do, and they are quite brazen, and have been known to charge when confronted.
There is relatively little gun violence here (which seems to be the only kind people object to), you are about a hundred times more likely to have a Deer-initiated auto accident than to be shot-
