That's up for debate, but what is not is the fact that these scoundrels stole deer meat intended for food banks, withheld meat they processed from hunters and then illegally sold that meat in clear violation of state law. I'm glad their shop is closed and I hope they end up living in a rusty sewer pipe in a scrap heap.

It's not about the deer, it's about the willful violation of the law and the breach of public trust.

It's not about deer, or hunting..
They agreed to process donated deer and give them to the poor..
They sold them instead..

It they had a Salvation Army kettle, and took the money it would be the same thing..

A business agrees to take donations for a cause, but steals them....

It's theft.....

I would change your insurance company. I hit a deer, it is considered an act of nature, no rate increase.

If giving the deer meat to a food pantry is permitted, then what is the problem with a business buying a lawfully culled deer and reselling it? Is the processing of deer meat any different then for cattle, hogs, etc.? Doesn't the same sanitary rules apply? Please explain what the differences are if someone out there knows. Or, as I suspect, the anti hunting, gun lobby may challenge any attempt by our elected leaders to look at legislation to pass a rationale law to permit the lawful purchase, processing and reselling of wild game to the public.
If it's good enough to give to a food bank then I should have the right to buy wild game for my use and let a few earn an honest living in doing so,

Those are farm raised rabbits, they are not wildlife!! Farm raised anything, is livestock.

It's not about the state not getting money. It's not about anti-hunters. It's about the management of a natural resource.

Think about what would happen if the state legalized the sale of wildlife.

Have you seen many wild bison lately?

It is an unfortunate circumstance of our species dominating the planet, that deer population must be "managed" to prevent their extinction. While many areas of our state and nation have high populations of deer, the fact remains that it is more profitable to kill and sell wild deer meat than to raise and sell cattle. after all, you don't have to feed, contain and ensure the health of the deer.

So while it is a romantic notion that we ought to be able to provide for our family by killing wild animals and selling their meat, those days are over. Next will be the hunting, killing and selling of wild crude oil, I'm afraid.

It makes you wonder about optimum human population levels on the planet, doesn't it?

This has to be one of the dumbest laws on Ohio's books. I can appreciate that theft, of any kind, is a crime. But the selling of natural and native meats, from animals legally hunted, should be allowed anywhere in the U.S.. Instead we are forced to buy European cows imported to this country a hundred years ago, pumped full of antibiotics, growth hormones...and god knows what else. Who put a law like this on our books...and why is it still there?!

The owners claimed the deer were from West Virginia. Upon inspection, it was determined the deer had an "O" under their tails.,meaning an Ohio deer. Case closed.

I suspect things would work out just fine. People wanting to harvest the deer would have to pay for permits to do so. There would be regulations on the sale and tracking of the product. Just look at the fishing industry. Highly regulated and fisherman (I'm talking guys with boats on the ocean) have to purchase rights to harvest a certain amount of fish. This actually gives those who have purchased these rights an incentive to make sure there are not others out there violating the law as it infringes on their, now private property rights.

People, wake up and think outside of the box. Whenever a profit motive is introduced you simultaneously introduce a desire on the part of those whose profit depends on whatever resource it is to protect that resource. The answer to long term sustainability of any renewable resource is private property rights. People are much more likely to be good stewards of resources they own vs. those owned by the public.

Since you are upset about willful violation of the law then which law do you choose when a game warden comes onto private property.

The US constitution that says he can't without a warrent and said warrent must dedscribe particularly what he is looking for and where or the State law that says he can go where he please to look for ilegal taking of game? Or the the laws of physics that says his brain tissue can't occupy the same space as the 7.62 nato round you just fire at the unidentified tresspasser and violator of your constitution recognized and God give right to defend yourself and property?

Private property? That is gone in Ohio, just ask the EPA, Health department, Zoning, building, or historical revue boards and committees they say what happens and where and come and go as they want, no warrent. Like my old neighbor says "what america needs is less voting more shooting"
