Sounds like they screwed up pretty bad. It's a shame that they are accused of selling meat that was intended for the food pantries.

Well there you go,an immediate increase in deer and car collisions. Without these fine people killing and selling the meat who is going to pickup the slack and get rid of these white tailed nusiance's?

This is BS. The state needs to back off on all their Deer and Game laws. When I hunt I feel like a poacher in Sherwood Forest, always on lookuot for the Sherriff of Nottingham to catch me. It shouldn't be like this.

Read again. It's about theft. They took what was donated for pantries and sold it to make money. The sale of deer meat encourages poaching that's why it goes to nonprofit pantries or hunters take it home.

No one is saying it's not safe to sell. It's illegal to sell wildlife meat & parts. They could butcher it (for a fee) for the hunters who legally killed the deer, or donate it to food pantries. They just aren't allowed to sell it for their own profit.

It is safe to eat. Many hunters fill their freezers every year with deer venison. Some hunters prefer to provide that meat to the hungry. The problem is they were selling meat intended for the hungry and the selling of wild game meat is illegal. You will pay around $100 to have a deer butchered and packaged to put in your freezer. Most butchers that offer this service will charge half of that if you are giving the meat to the hungry.

ODNR should be ashamed. It should not be illegal to process and sell deer meat. We have far too many deer in OHIO and if allowing legal sales would help feed OHIO and cut back on the damage the thousands of deer cause then pass a law to let it happen.

The problem is that if you make it legal to sell you will have people hunting to make money off of the meat. Let us not forget that 50 years ago there were not enough deer in ohio to hunt. They had to be re-introduced to the area so that the herds could get big enough to hunt again.

I'm glad we are getting these real dangerous criminals off the street and making people lose their jobs - over DEER MEAT. I have to drive from Columbus to Cincinnati regularly. One day last month I counted 17 dead deer along the road.

You blame the government for someone who knowingly broke a law that has a purpose? They didn't have to break the law. They did it for greed.

Most laws are passed, because of people who don't have common sense. For instance, it may be a good idea not to drink and drive. Do people do that and kill others? All the time. Has the law helped? Yes, it has.

Law is meant for prevention of harm, enforcement is meant to "babysit," prosecution is meant as a deterrent, and conviction is punishment.

Did ya ever think...maybe they had to sell the deer meat to stay in business? Just maybe they were in emergency mode. Maybe they weren't able to keep up with Ohio's high cost of doing business. You try paying payroll taxes for 20 people. It's astounding. Doing Small business in Ohio isn't easy.

Boy, some dangerous criminals here! OK make it a misdemeanor, but a felony, several charges.

Ever notice that the deer belong to the State UNTIL you hit one and tear up your car. State not responsible then.

ODNR and prosecutor trying to make big names for themselves.

So, it's okay for a Mexican restaurant to supplement their income by selling heroin to keep their employees working? There was a Mexican restaurant that operated at Westland Mall in Columbus, Ohio that was busted for trafficking heroin. Those people lost their jobs too. Maybe they were in "emergency mode" too.

It was their choice to knowingly break the law. The law didn't jeopardize 20 jobs, the owners did. If it meant laying off one or two employees to stay afloat, then that's what they should have done. Now look, 20 employees are out of a job.

Just because the economy is bad, does that warrant allowing illegal activity?
