I need something to shoot sice I've been out of the Army and deer provide the perfect target. And they deserve it since one of them attacked my truck as I was driving down the road and alot of other people have had similar events with the overpopulated deer. Yet there are some such as game wardens who seem to think that spotlighting deer is wrong. Just wondering whether you are with me in my struggle against the Whitetail menace or if you sympathize with those anti-American terrorist who suicide attack cars.

If you don't shoot them, and don't do it in season and scare them I call it sight seeing mother nature. Whats wrong with that? I live in Kentucky, I like to see nature in its real form, not a zoo cage. Good poll Mike, I got your back.

Maybe I didn't read your first post Mike. That whitetail menace as you say is something I like to eat once a year when its in season. I totaled a truck because one jumped out in front of me, my fault because I was going the speed limit in fog. Deal with it man, we have something now called Insurance. You can't put a price on peace of mind. If you REALLY need to shoot something alive, go dove hunting. Hit a moving target Mr. Army sharp shooter. How can you even relate something like deer hunting to anti-american terrorist?????
Think about this as you sit under the Air conditioner typing on your labtop. If you were thrown back 300 years ago and had to survive, would you? Would you hunt your meal in the traditional american way, or start pickin berries???

I agree with this.
Some people use binoculars, other people use a scope.
Let's be honest here, most of the time that trigger finger just slips while you are enjoying watching wildlife.
Sometime 3, maybe 4 times a night.

I was teasing just a lil bit. Deer arent really terrorist. But they are very overpopulated to the point that there are actual trained "deer snipers" being hired by city councils in some areas. I just think that open season hunting would help both deer and people; especially since alot of times overpopulated deer are facing starvation.

Needless to say, the population in my area gets well thinned out during season. Everybody I know scouts around all year, and hunts every single season, and never wastes a tag. Spotlighting and killing is a little cheap though. Its a seasonal meal, thats what makes it so good. You only get one chance a year to go hunt it down. I'd still rather be eating them, than hitting one in my truck, LoL.

That depends on if you are asking the hunter or the game warden.

Mike, I am your neighbor. I live just down the road from you, and I know how overpopulated the deer are around here. I counted twenty within five miles of my house the other day in the broad daylight! I have also had vehicle damage. But let me tell you, that if you hunt at night, you don't know what the consequences may be. My baby's crib is against the wall closest to a field where you may be shooting that deer! Think about that before you do something stupid. If you need to "shoot something" that bad, look for legal manners in which to do it.

No, spotlighting deer is NOT "OK."
A friend of mine's dad got busted for spotlighting deer way back when we were in high school.
They yanked his license, confiscated his rifle AND his vehicle.

Some people hunt deer at night (illegal) and deer, when light shines in their eyes, get "hypnotized" by the light. They freeze in their tracks and just stare at the light. It has a hypnotic effect on them.
Absolutely no challenge in that whatsoever.

That's really mean...the poor deer. At least give them a chance.

I always like the arguement about "spotlighting gives the hunter an unfair advantage". What do you think a highpowered rifle with a scope is??? I think that you should be able to shoot deer at night with or without a spotlight.

Spotlighting deer is in no way right. If you can't kill a deer during the daytime and in season then you are obviously not good at hunting and you should probably just give it up all together. For everyone out there hunting at night, I cant wait til you get busted because chances are that you will!
