ranger1 BS: Now it’s white tail deer (74* d) RE: BS: Now it’s white tail deer 29 Sep 18

Here in the part of the world I live in, there are an abundance of deer. There are also an abundance of people who don't have a lot of money, and that deer in the fall (fawns have been weaned by this point, Sen, and most hunting permits are for bucks only) may be the only thing that keeps their kids from going to bed hungry some nights. And it's really more of a management tool, a cull, if you will, to keep the deer population down to a manageable size. Ever seen a deer that has died of starvation? Not such a pretty sight. And I remember driving through West Virginia about 15 years ago and there was a dead deer about every mile on the highway, hit by cars or large trucks. So hunting whitetails doesn't bother me, as long as it's done to put food on the table. And if I had to either hunt a wild creature or raise an animal and slaughter it, I know I'd have an easier time shooting the deer. That animal knows I am the predator. The animals raised by people? They don't know that they're food on the hoof. they depend on humans, and then we turn around and slaughter them.
