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.
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!

And when you say "we could kill off most of the deer" I doubt that we includes you!

"However, the white-tailed deer hasn’t always been as abundant in the state as it is today. As a matter of fact, there was a period of time (1904 to 1923) when the deer was absent in the state."

"limited stocking combined with the natural movement of deer from neighboring states into Ohio, and the establishment and strict enforcement of hunting laws allowed the development of a herd that today occupies all 88 counties."

Doesn't support your 'kept artificially high so bubba can get his rocks off argument'

Um, did you miss this part? "...establishment and strict enforcement of hunting laws allowed the development of a herd that today occupies all 88 counties."

ODNR knows how many deer are in the state and regulates hunting to maintain a viable population -- not too many and not too few. Seems to me they like to keep it at around 100,000, but I'm not certain of the exact number.

The point being, if they wanted to remove this unpredictable and deadly menace from our roads, they could simply allow open season until the deer are gone, just like one hundred years ago.

Right. Thre idea is to keep it in check, not to destroy the species. Having an extant deer population isn't a bad thing.

We had a family friend who died on a solo hunting trip in the winter. It's a sad thing.

But you know, dying alone isn't probably all that bad, heck tigers do it. At least you don't have to put up with all your relatives, or emergency personnel, or the warden of your prison, or a mouthful of dirt in a foreign land after getting shot by somebody who shouldn't even be able to kill a soldier like yourself.

I think the real lesson of death is your own. Take what lessons you can in order to become better as you see it. In time you'll join that great silent chorus yourself. As will we all.
