God frowns upon killing Bambi:

Leviticus 22:28 - "However, no animal is to be slaughtered together with its young on the same day, neither cow nor ewe."

You've got to at least give Bambi a day's head start.

Young deer were caught, sexed and tagged before being returned to their mothers and monitored.

So how YOU doin'?

FTFA:  "Males that lost their mother before weaning were also found to develop their first antlers more slowly. This is known to have knock on effects for antler growth later in life and reproductive success."

Bull droppings.  A deers first set of antlers, and even it's second, is very rarely indicative of it's later life growth.  That's why we wait until a deer is at least 3 1/2 to determine if it needs to be culled from the heard for inferior antler growth characteristics.  Some of our best B&C deer started out as spikes and forks.

Where I'm from, there is no need for responsible deer hunting. The outnumber the people, by a large margin. Cull the herd, shoot does.

Also, trophy hunters take the best bucks, leaving the runts, decreasing overall population fitness.

See, that's just wrong.  You don't take head shots on deer, it farks up the antlers and it's too small a target.

You go for a heart/lung shot instead.

Ah! A trophy hunter. Heart/lung shots spoil at least some of the meat and don't always kill quickly.

Head shots? They drop like their strings have been cut and if you miss, you usually don't inflict a fatal wound.

If you can't make a decent headshot at 100 yards with a rifle or a slug, you have no business being in the woods with a gun.

I like heart.  When you aim for the head, you don't mess up any meat.

Ultimatly, head shots are clean and quick, but a smaller target.  For me, it depends upon the range, rest and if the animial is moving.

/all breadbasket shots so far this year, though.

Maybe if they are standing perfectly still and you have your trust CF.  Lobbing a slug at 100 yards on that size of target would be a challenge unless the conditions and your rest was just right.  You can't always count on that.

Where I'm from, there is no need for responsible deer hunting. The outnumber the people, by a large margin. Cull the herd, shoot does.

I take bucks and does (family farm in South Central KY). There is ALWAYS a need to practice responsible deer hunting--culling a seriously overpopulated herd IS responsible deer hunting. To my knowledge, there is no place in the US where shooting every deer you see is really necessary--if that were actually the case, the season would be year-round and unlimited (like wild hogs, coyotes, groundhogs in much of the US).

Does (whitetails, anyway) usually run in family units, and it is pretty typical to find mother/fawn combinations running with yearling does. Take the yearling does. A mother raising a fawn will lead to a healthier deer next year. You seem to be concerned about "runts"; keeping mothers/fawns together should help this. There are plenty of "trophy" genetics to go around; wheteher or not a buck reaches the 3-5 year age to grow optimum antlers is another issue.

From a practical sense (and related to the article), in my experience, when you fire a shot at a group of deer, every single deer takes off running. The one you hit goes down fast (if you know how to shoot, another part of being a responsible hunter), but good luck tracking down the fawn to make the "mercy kill".

Thick-headed hunters piss me off.

Picky, picky. I usually hunt a reclaimed strip mine or my neighbor's wood lot which has some nice managed cuts.

Not all woods are alike. The difference between a managed forest and, say the forever wild sections of the Adirondacks are like night and day.

I'm no sport hunter. In fact, I hate it. It is a matter of economics and a tight food budget.

I do use a rifle with a nice Weaver scope. If in thick brush, it it the old 12 ga.

You shouldn't hate sport hunting.

There are three main kinds of hunting:  Sport, subsistence, and market hunting.  Only sport hunting results in *INCREASES* in game populations.  The others result in decreases.

I don't hate it in others. I just dislike killing things. I'll do it, I just feel bad about it for awhile.

We do not need deer populations to increase in WV. The amount of road kills would apall most people.

Sometimes, a decrease is a desired result.  And while your generaizations are spot-on, the 3 can overlap in some very substantial ways.

Well, since this is about to turn into a hunting thread...

Hou-Shiueh Crossbow with a combo iron-sight and scope (sight under scope) firing tungsten-tipped triple-razor head on a graphite shaft and typical rubber fletching.

I barely have enough power to cock it (it needs about 150 lbs to draw back) and with the appropriate heads will easily make an engine block have a bad day.
