Last time I saw a big buck, he got splattered by a guy in a pickup about 8 years ago. Tore up the guy's truck. Had to have been a 10 pointer.

I think a lot of those "does" are this year's fawns or yearlings who haven't got their spikes yet.

People who hunt the trophy bucks don't throw away the meat, you know. It either goes in their own freezer, that of their friends, or they donate it and needy families get it.

What's wrong with filling the freezer and getting a trophy at the same time? Geez.

A lot of hunters do it for the sport of hunting and killing the animal. Not to mention the fenced in land and baiting that you can find up north and pay a very pricey fee for "hunting" and I use that loosely.
Sure, back in the day folks HAD to hunt for food to survive but now days there is no need for hunting for your food so why kill the animals? Therefore, hunters just do it for the sport and trophy.

So hunting deer and taking your chance at killing one is more humane than chicken houses and feed lots where animals have no chance?
You have no argument unless you are vegetarian and do not eat meat, if not think about the poor little chicken that NEVER got to run in the woods and was raised in a house that he could not even walk in, just enough room to eat and drink.

It's not just the buck's oct, hunters actually save all of us money by stopping a deer from jumping the fence ahead of time before it's in the grill of your car and somebodies poor grandmother is laid up in the hospital and her car totaled, I did'nt post this so my friends would get wrapped around the axles . but , if it was'nt for the deer hunters, i could only and don't wan't to imagine the carnage left behind after the animal and driver have met . personally , i love hot deer sausage , backstap bisquits and gravy . Also , i own a little bit of land and the coyote's are on a rampage in the county . ,I can understand your view, I accept it . I really like being outdoors and let the small bucks and does run . I like to watch them year round. I just don't kill for the thrill, Alot of deer i harvest go to families , here in Bremen that gracefully give thanks when i take one to them . They have some food . There is other aspect's and answers to this question and i'll respectively read and listen to them . I do it right and don't break the law. Just was wondering.

Game hunting keeps the populations down, especially since we've gotten rid of all the big predators who would normally do this -- when's the last time you saw a pack of wolves, grey, timber or red, mountain lions, or enough bears to make a difference in how many deer there are?

If hunters didn't hunt, you'd have to shove the deer out of the way to drive down the road. They'd be all over the place -- deer have a gestation period of 9 months, just like cows, and after the first fawn they generally have twins, just like goats (they're related to cows, goats and sheep).

Every third year or so they'd have a potential of two births in that year, with a probability of 1 to 4 fawns.

You could say good-bye to any landscaping you might have done, and enjoy replacing your vehicle when you hit one of them -- they can flat tear up a car and if they hit right, they can kill you.

So yay for hunters, I say. I wish you all your full quota, and may you find that monster buck out there!

Hint: I do love some backstrap...

Hmmm, cats and dogs running out in front of cars cause accidents too. Should we all hunt and kill them also to prevent them from doing that? Just saying. Bottom line is, the point I am trying to make is that people hunt and kill for sport, whether they eat the meat or not and I do not believe in hunting animals for sport. Sorry if you all don't understand that. That is how I feel:)

For the record, I don't hold with those game "ranches" where the land is all fenced in and the bait the animals up to where "hunters" are sitting in stands -- that's just a fancy, expensive slaughterhouse.

I'm not aware of any of those types of abominations around here, and I don't condone them. If you want to hunt, then do it right.

Oh, and if you can't hit what you shoot at, or you can't kill what you hit, then don't go hunting and don't call yourself a hunter.

What are your shoes made of? Do you have any wool clothes? What's your purse made of? Your billfold? How about the upholstery in your car? Are you a vegan, or do you still eat fish, eggs and dairy?

IMO, if you don't go all the way when it's a moral stance regarding exploiting animals, then you're a hypocrite.

Just sayin'.

Yep , seen a 4-wheel drive with 10 grand worth of damage to the vehicle , hit with so much force (the driver WAS running 55 and slowing down to miss it).It did'nt hurt the driver , but deployed the airbags , all of them and broke the transmission lines away from the drivetrain .The incedent happened right here in Bremen . The 9 point could'nt make the distinction of what was safer , crossing or running wild.It made the wrong choice, and the driver harvested what he could off the deer , disposed of it rightfully . We just don't know what's around the corner .

I'm usually slow walking, I do give them a fair chance to hear me , i can't sit in stands , they kill my back .Love to walk anyway , you see so much more . I do love the wildlife in our county, we have so much that is taken for granted . Again , the sheriff's patrol and gamewardes got 2 men spotlighting , shooting from the truck , shoouting from a vehichle, convicted felons i n possesion of fire arem , with that said - Ihopr the judge sticks it to them
