Dude, you're right about it being made into a huge industry. It is cotrolled, but mostly for conservation reasons. what about the ones who actually like to hunt? Its worth jumping through hoops to hunt, at least for me! btw, not all of us are gassed up on Budweiser!<quoted text>
The deer population is kept artificially high so that hunters can have something big to kill. If it wasn't for the hunting lobby we could kill off most of the deer. They were actually hunted to extinction in Ohio, then reintroduced so that Bubba could indulge his Budweiser-fuelled Great White Hunter fantasy.
Think about THAT the next time a car collides with a deer and it comes through the windshield and kills someone.
And when you say "we could kill off most of the deer" I doubt that we includes you!
