Kill off as many of those woods rats as you can.  There are altogether too many deer roaming around this area and elsewhere.  The insurance industry reports well over TWO BILLION dollars in costs of deer/automobile collisions! Growing plenty of deer for hunters has resulted in growing too many of them for the public good.

Counted 16 in an empty lot one late afternoon two weeks ago while walking the dog in the neighborhood.  They were grazing in the lightly wooded area within 100 yards of my house, in the city limits.  They are beautiful to look at, but they destroy any flowers or shrubs you have.  They are also very tasty!

Get you a bow or a crossbow. That will do it. A crossbow is just like a gun, and accurate.

If you think all the deer/automobile collisions are the fault of drunk drivers, then you have not had much experience in driving rural highways at night, Bestworking.

I drive at night all the time. I've had as many as five deer in the field behind our house at one time,and by our shop is a protected area where deer stay. I drive down pepper road all the time, there are deer all over in the fields along side. I'm more worried about drunk drivers than I am deer. Your statement about killing them off is just plain sick and mean. I was just wondering if we can do the same to the drunk drivers.

I guess I'm just one of those that had rather look at a beautiful animal than kill it for doing what nature intends for it to do. Deer are all over around here. They're all over the trace too, and it's nothing to see them at the side of the interstate. You do have to be alert but that goes for anything. Deer are not out to get you, but anyone that gets drunk and drives doesn't care if they kill you or not.

If you think all those deer/automobile accidents are caused by drunk drivers, then you just ain't been out driving on rural highways at night, Bestworking.

 Deer was intended to be a food source for mankind and other meat lovers!

 If someone is starving I can understand that very well. Hunting for food is one thing, hunting for the thrill of killing something is another. Deer hunters only talk about the thrill of killing, what they use to do it, what they go through to kill something, what they spend to do it, and have pictures taken of themselves with animals they've killed, like they've accomplished something. Instead of having remorse because they've injured something that got away to die a miserable death, they whine because it got away. Oh well.

 I assure you all responsible deer hunters make good use of the meat weather they eat it or not.

I know a man who kills over 200 deer each year that don't eat any of it. He does however clean the animal and donate the meat to people in need and others who will eat it.

I personally don't hunt, but I do love to eat deer meat and appreciate all that is given to me!

Well again, if the killing was to prevent starvation I couldn't and wouldn't say a word. But the killing is for the thrill of killing and that I don't care for. Kinda hard to argue that a man is feeding his family when he spends enough on hunting to feed them for a year, and nothing says he will even get one. The guy that kills 200 deer a year, how does he manage to do that? I thought there was a limit on how many one person could kill a year.
