How dare you think of killing off these beautiful animals.If you want to get rid of animals are prisons are over populated with millions start killing those animals.I live in the back of a forest preserve and I would never ever think of harming any of the deers.If you don't like where you live because of the deers then move to the city.What good does hunting down these beautiful animals do? And to who's benifit?

SHESHE: These "beautiful animals"... hmm.. so if they weren't pretty, if they were actually ugly looking, then would it be okay to shoot them? I assume you have no problems with people going fishing because fish aren't "beautiful", right? I can't understand people who put values on animals based on whether they are pretty or not.

They are overpopulated, way too many animals for the land that they inhabit, the only predator is our vehicles ... This is way overdue, congrats WCFD for taking a stance on this. Meat going to shelters .. Good job!

Yes deer are beautiful creatures. The problem is that they are inbreeding and reproducing out of control. They have to be controlled. Hunting is a way of life for food.

Yes, they are beautiful creatures. And so are people. If you ever hit one going 50 mph and it crashed through your windshield nd you SURVIVED, you might not feel the same way. This is nothing new. They have been trying to control them for decades. Nothing works but this way.

Dear ACTIVE Resident,
This has nothing to do with beauty or looks you know exactly what I was trying to state. No comment about the animals in prison that should be hunted down. Oh, I forgot those are beautiful people too. You are all so full of shit.As far as controlling the population of the deers,Consider the over population of mean, hatefull,selfish people like yourselves.They were put here by God for a reason,and the reason was not to Kill them.
P.S Any person who thinks this is the right thing to do is HEARTLESS.

/Hey Got To Go,
Good point the next time a beautiful person gets raped, stabbed, rob, etc We the people can't controll these animals anymore.So you have a good point the only way to control them is to hunt them down.Thats if we SURVIVE there attacks.Take that to you Will County Board.

SheShe: Wow, I can't understand the link between hunting deers and people in prison. Where did you come up with that one?

As Cegliberty says, hunting is a way of life for deer. If they were truly "in the wild" they would be fearing for their lives every day from wolves. They've got it cushy -- the only thing to worry about is crossing the road. And yep, I was one of those. Driving down a road a mile from my house and a beautiful deer comes flying out of the woods and ends up on the hood of my car. Thank goodness I wasn't hurt at all, the deer died so I guess I was "predator" for a day.

Heartless? Try realistic. It is because of man that the deer are thriving since we have eradicated their natural predators and given them places to graze all winter long with hardly any chance of them dying. Deer in the wild never knew how tasty a tulip is! Heck, even I put out a livestock block in my back yard to feed them in the dead of winter, so I'm a bit of a softy.

But there's just too many of them. Yes, there's too many evil people in prisons too, but you're the only one who thinks that that's somehow connected...

Mr. Active Resident. You are correct. I too cannot understand the connection of overpopulated deer and criminals. It just makes no sense whatsoever.
I also wonder if SheShe is a vegetarian, or if she eats meat. If the latter she too is promoting the killing of animals. If she is a veggie, then I understand her point of view only regarding the animals. The criminal thing is just too far out there to be understood.
I too have ad a deer jump out in front of me on my way to work. Totalled my car but I was ok. The deer however was no longer beautiful.

P.S By the way how much MONEY does Wll County make on this hunting escaped? The hunters need to pay for their LICENSE TO KILL.

Yes, my Heart is for the the people and children killed because of a spooked deer searching for food. People are always more important than deer. They are going to die anyways from lack of food. Do it the right way to protect the people. Send the meat to the poor.

The hunters do pay for their right to hunt. It's called a hunting license. I suspect though that this will be done on a lottery type selection of hunters. I hope I'm one of the fortunate ones.

CEGLIBERTY... I applaud you. A Voice of Reason who knows when Deer, just like coyotes, wolves, etc, become dangerous in populated areas , they have to go. Isn't not Bambi when it comes through your windshield and kills you or your loved one. I have a question ( asking not arguing) Is it actually everyday hunters? Or do they have a list of sharp shooter available?. I mean, they will be professional and not just someone who bought a license and a gun and want to 'try out' the sport?

I think the goverment should round up the deer and make deer burgers out of them and feed the needy instead of giving food stamps. Problem solved. NEXT!!!!

I'd like to know that myself Mr. GTG. I would hope that it would be experienced hunters or forest rangers. It could get ugly with a bunch of amatuers shooting away at whatever moves.

That's pretty funny, because I'm a woman too! And because I can just imagine the stereotypes that a person of SheShe's bent will probably conjure up, let's see... I have 3 rifles in my house, and I have a card. But guess what, I'm a democrat, pro-choice, anti-religion, valedictorian in my high school.. So please no stereotypes about the type of people who have and enjoy guns and hunting, okay?

Oh I forgot... The newsletter that the WCFP sends out (I get it every quarter) mentions that it will be WCFP employees, and "sharp shooter" licenses given out at lottery.
