I am new resident here from Prague, Czech Republic.

I was in a store where it sold tree stands?

How is this thing used? For what?

We've got a large population of whitetail deer and a substantial population of whitetail deer hunters 'round these parts. The stand goes in a tree and is used as a snipers nest to ambush the deer. It's a hunting device.

Are the deer a problem like bears getting in garbage?

Wouldn't traps or some chemical that reduces new deers be cheaper?

Deer are problematic in that humans have eliminated their natural enemies such as black bears, wolves, panthers, etc. In addition our use of the land for farms, woods, subdivisions (a subdivision is an excellent place for deer offering plenty of forage (ornamental plants, fruit trees, oaks) intermingled with patches of woods), allow for an unnatural deer population. There are more deer here now than there were 80 years ago and more than when Europeans first came to this country.

A healthy mature doe will have twins every year where in an unhealthy environment they will have only one or won't produce at all. So without preditors the population can grow rather quickly to the point where diseases can set in, the animals become a hazard to cars and a nuisance to homeowners and farmers. Food also becomes short especially in the late winter and the whole population then suffers. Some areas of the county have tried chemicals, even birth control but with little affect.

Also, hunting is big business. Sales of guns, ammo, tree stands, clothing, 4-wheelers runs into millions of dollars. Many farmers will supplement their income by leasing their property to hunting clubs. Dispite all the hunting pressure the population of whitetail deer in Georgia is holding steady at around a million aminals. Oh, and they taste good too, little fat with no chemicals like they feed to beef-cows.

Well, now that it's been brought up there can be albino deer, although its rare, and piebald, which has a mix of brown and white hair.....But the other deer don't like them much cause all they want is free health care and fo' da man ta gitup off'ee's back.

You haven't been told the whole story of these great "hunters". First they plant food for the deer, the deer get used to coming to the spot the hunters planted food, then when deer season comes around, the "hunters" put their tree stand over the plants the deer eat, and when a deer comes by its good bye deer! Oh, and the "hunters" say its for the meat, but they don't go after the best source for tender meat,(the younger ones) the hunters go after the ones with lots of antlers.

Whatever hunters are doing it's not diminishing the herd. Whenever I find a corn feeder or salt block during hunting season I usually take a wiz on it, keeps the animals away.

Ted Nugent, rock star and avid bow hunter from Michigan , was being interviewed

by a liberal journalist, an animal rights activist. The discussion came around to deer hunting.

The journalist asked,'What do you think is the last thought in the head of a deer before you shoot him? Is it,'Are you my friend?' or is it 'Are you the one who killed my brother?

Nugent replied,'Deer aren't capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, what am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the Democrats in Congress.'

The interview ended.

Now, if I were in a store and they were selling something that I didn't understand its use, I would ask someone who works there rather than post a question to Topix.
But that's just me.

Racoon dick, I'm not GOD of anything. Maybe you and Fed Up should pay attention to what GOD says before GOD says it to you directly. Ask yourself, "what is the right thing to do here?" and then, "am I right to spew hatred towards races of people?"
We are all God's children. Maybe you haven't noticed.

Only in the Douglasville topix fourm can a question about something as inert as hunting turn into a full fledged personal mud flinging contest. Its one thing to have no class or manors, another to go out of your way to openly demonstrate it for all to see.
