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.
I'm glad you qualified that with "renewable resource" as it doesn't apply to non-renewable resources where greed outweighs any desire to protect the earth. You are also being overly idealistic I'm afraid. Large companies making money with an eye to future profits will fit well into your belief system. But there are always going to be those who are more shortsighted that will look purely at the profits that can be made today.

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"
What America REALLY needs are fewer conspiracy theorists.

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?
Makes me wonder why some people say this world is overpopulated , but their own existence does not seem to be a factor somehow?

Face it, these people knew what they were doing. They've been in the business long enough to know the law and the penalties. They just figured that they wouldn't get caught and have to do the time.
Don't worry, they'll be back - in a few years.

Only in Columbus is deer meat so popular they sell it at stores, it doesen't get anymore trailer trash. And people wonder why Columbus has the reputation for being a cowtown, I mean deer-town.

If you would eat anywhere more high brow than Applebees you just might see it on the menu.

To the guy who said this could as successful as commercial fishing: Please do a little investigation of the population trends of the Great Lakes and ocean fisheries.

What about all those fly-by-night con artists that

go door to door trying to sell meat that comes

from God-knows-where...if it's meat at all.

"Hey Martha..there's a guy here who wants to sell

us 50 steaks for $1.99 a pound. What do you think?"

"See if he has any deer for sale from that guy who

had to go out of business. If so..buy some & I'll

serve it to you for dinner. If the deer is still

kicking see if we can have it for half price.

It'll be just like the crap hot dogs we get at

Speedway."

Yummy nums & Pepto forever!

Small business trying to make ends meet. Deer meat didn't sink this shop. Debt did.

What's the difference-you can buy rabbits from north Market-why not sell dear?
Well, for one thing those are farm raised rabbits. The same is true of elk and bison. I've even seen venison for sale in stores but I believe that is farm-raised as well.

There are several reasons wild meat is not sold in stores. For one thing, it would encourage poaching and trespassing. It is also difficult to ensure that the meat is properly handled, aged, stored and packaged. I agree that farms are no prize and that in most cases wild meat is a healthier alternative to the hormone laden garbage that comes off of factory farms but wild animals can carry parasites and trace pollutants.

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.....
