Well they are worth absolutely nothing on the hoof. They do a lot more damage than good. Glad they are feeding the hungry.

This is a good way to help the people who need help and keep the deer population down. This helps prevent an over abundance which could lead to diseases of the deer. I'm glad the hunters give the meat away instead of only taking the antlers. Thank You!

Thanks to all the hunters who donate the deer they kill to the area's food banks.
They are helping to thin out the population and, providing meat to many families... some who could be unemployed.

This was their land before we ever set foot on it.If we did not put roads and houses on every acre we can get they would not eat your flowers and shrubs and wreck your cars.Glad you are not in Alaska,up there they hit Moose on the roads.

And their large numbers at this point are presenting a hazard to health/drivers as well as diseases brought on by inbreeding that can cause health issues as well as rendering the meat useless for human consumption.

That being said..we dropped off 3 deer this afternoon, somebody will be eating well in the next few weeks.

I think you read what I was saying as I do not like hunting. I use to love before I got to old. He said they were nothing but meat. I love to see them in natural places. Not in my backyard where I can't harvest them.
