From a pure animal rights standpoint, killing any animal for food is morally objectionable, whether that animal is a deer, a cow or a chicken. Many find hunting to be unethical because the killing is recreational. Also, many argue that human/deer conflicts are not the fault of the deer, but are the fault of humans who take habitat from the deer. Some hunting opponents also believe that modern technology has erased any chance of fairness in hunting. Certain practices are also considered especially objectionable, such as canned hunting, trophy hunting, baiting, and hunting of stocked animals.

Regarding ethics, hunting proponents argue that killing a deer for food cannot be worse than killing a cow or a chicken. Furthermore, unlike the cow or the chicken, the deer lived a free and wild life before being killed and had a chance to escape. Hunters also argue that killing a number of deer benefits the ecosystem as a whole. Some hunters also oppose certain practices they consider unethical, such as baiting, canned hunting, trophy hunting, and hunting of stocked animals.

Just a guess, you are NOT a Christian. Christians (and Jews and Muslims) know that God put all of the plants and animals on earth for our use and consumption. This is one of the main faults I have with people yelling about "animal rights" animals don't have a government, they don't have rights, they are not interested in our political follies. They live by the laws of nature, which simply put is kill, or be eaten. If you are an herbivore, you are food for a carnivore (or an Omnivore to be fair). Humans are Omnivores, we are designed to eat plants and animals. Whether you believe that is due to evolution or supernatural design, that's how it is. Denying it is denying being human.

God meant for us to eat deer or he wouldn't have made them out of meat. BUT, to go to the woods you should learn how to shoot a da## gun. We have deer (that we have fed all year) jerking around in ditches with their hind legs shot into. Spend more time getting used to your gun you dum$ a$$es. Spend less time reading your hunting magazines and more time shooting your targets. Can you hit the toilet? Then hit the deer. Grrrrrrr

There is more to hunting than killing. It's getting out there with family and friends and enjoying nature. Our society actually benefits from hunting, for example, without hunting we would be over populated and car accidents due to deer would sky rocket. Also it would be almost impossible to have successful crops with an over populated deer herd. I come from a long line of hunters. I am proud to say that I can live off the land. I disagree with some ways of hunting such as fencing them in or running them to other hunters. I believe hunting should be fair game it should be your hunting skills against their survival skills. Believe it or not deer are more successful in that challenge. I don't judge you for stealing food from rabbits you shouldn't judge me for keeping the rabbit population down so you can eat.

Hunting is ineffective because state wildlife management agencies intentionally keep the deer population high, for hunters.
also,
Lands managed for hunting are sometimes purchased and maintained with tax dollars, even though 95% of Americans do not hunt.

95% of Americans don't hunt? Not sure where you got that information but it's wrong.

Just like a Republicant to steal something from another. If we tax you it's called socialist class warfare redistribution. But when you outright steal others ideas or property, it is just "business"!

Studies show that car/deer collisions increase during hunting season because hunters frighten the deer out of the woods and onto roads. Opponents also argue that hunting does not reduce the deer population because removing some individuals from the population results in more food per deer, which leads to the births of more twins and triplets. This also means that hunting is unnecessary because the deer will self-regulate and give birth to fewer fawns when food is scarce.

the reason for increase of deer/car collisions during hunting season is because hunting season is during the rut ( breeding season) it has nothing to do with hunting. Just like that wonderful time of year when no matter where you go somebody hit a skunk it's during their breeding season.

WHACK? Are you trapped in a Kid N Play House Party movie from the 90's or an old episode of Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

And I bet you have never eaten a hamburger, or a big thick steak that was cut from some poor cow. When all you Obama lovin freaks no longer have walmart to buy your veggies don't start hunting for your food you may upset the ecosystem. But I guess you have never had to go hunt to put food on your table because you didn't have the money to buy a bag of salad.

Please tell me how killing an animal for food is morally objectionable? Are you a vegetarian? Do you practice veganism? I sure hope so. Otherwise the very first sentence of your post is what's actually objectionable.
Not all people who hunt do it recreationally. I know plenty of people who bag their two deer a year and process the meat for later consumption throughout the next months. Those people enjoy venison like you enjoy beef, pork, poultry, and fish.

Shooting a deer with a gun or a bow and arrow certainly causes suffering. A clean shot isn't always possible, and quite often a deer will survive and be maimed.
