I've had a cease fire called on the rifle area of the range I go to because a deer was meandering along the berm at the end of the range.

I've also seen a deer just hanging out on the edge of the trap range. We just let the clays go if they flew where the deer was.

And this is in a suburb of Seattle, not out in the boonies.

It was weird.

"Baby deer walks up to hunters during their target practice, licks one of their guns"

That's a euphemism-rich sentence.

I'm just outside Seattle right now.
Several years ago I was leasing a house on the outskirts of Raleigh, NC before it was conglomerated by the RTP.  I enjoyed seeing the deer run by and freely roam the property.
By the standards of a NW native they were small and spindly but beautiful nonetheless.
I woke up to gunfire one Xmas morning.
The deer never came back.

Me neither. It makes me sad. Dunno how anyone could look at a healthy, presumably happy, wild animal and enjoy killing it.

Is there such a thing as a Darwin award for animals? This deer is going to earn one.

Bingo. Was at a shooting range touching off a 7mm Rem Mag with several chipmunks scampering around about 6ft in front of and below me, totally unfazed by the shots. A doe and a few turkeys kept eating the grass seed about 150 yards downrange, and they didn't notice bullets passing a few yards behind them from the guy in another lane. Deaf, dumb or ballsy.

In a year or two, when that cute little critter comes bounding across the interstate while you've just passed that tractor trailer, check back with us about how cute it is.
 
2013-12-13 10:14:41 PM  
I was going to take up deer hunting when I lived in Wisconsin, but I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much time out there hoping for a shot.  So I took up cow hunting instead.  Much, much easier.  You gotta do it at night, though, because the folks at the petting zoo get really pissed.

It's not like the grocery store isn't fairly bristling with meat of every description.

If you feel the pressure wave coming off a .30-06 and you don't think "I should probably stay away from that", Darwin is probably right on your heels, hearing or no hearing.

It's not my thing either, but I have no problem with people hunting for food.

Trophy hunters, on the other hand, can fu*k off.

They're not beautiful.  They're rats with hooves.  Further here they're over populated as you can't hunt them.  So  now they can die slowly from starvation or from getting hit by cars/motorcycles/bicycles.  All while injuring people in/on the vehicles.
 
2013-12-13 10:26:12 PM  
I think it was deaf. How could anything with ears not flinch at the sharp sound, not knowing when the trigger is going to be pulled?

The dudes were fawning over that.

Agreed. It would just make me sick to my stomach. The exact opposite of a thrill.

The thrill is in the chilli made later that night.  Killing something provides no thrill at all.  Unless I happen to be on a motorcycle doing 75+mph on a dark road, then there's lots of thrill! and pants wetting!

Not all hunters do. It is possible to hunt an animal for food and be respectful enough not to take pleasure in the task.

So I take it that you're both women. Look, we know you don't like doing it. That's what we've evolved to do it over millions of years.

We have that happen at our trap field, too.  Always rather amusing.

You eat it/use the pelt?  Fine.  Deer populations need to be managed.  I would never choose to do it myself, but as long as you respect the animal, I can accept it.

But you kill an animal for a farking trophy, especially a large endangered animal?  You deserve to be hollowed out and made into a douche-skin rug.

Why?

Seriously, why?  Because they'll pass up a 6 pointer because it's too small?

In the pantheon of hunters, the one you should be celebrating is the trophy hunter.  He's the one most likely to be dropping a large amount of cash to preserve habitat so he can hunt that monster buck, and it's not just the deer that benefit from that.

People who hunt just for food are worse, imho.  They, along with market hunters, were the ones that caused the crash of whitetail deer populations until regulations were enacted and enforced by "trophy hunters" back in the early 1900s.

Now that the people who shoot deer just for food have to follow the same ethical rules that trophy hunters set for them, and market hunting (ie., hunting to sell their meat and hides) has been outlawed completely, deer have bounced to the point where they are more numerous now than when Europeans first set foot on the continent.

And it was the people who wanted a Boone and Crockett or Pope and Young sized trophy that you can thank for that.

See my post above.  It's the trophy hunters who spend the most on things like preserving habitat.

I'm not a trophy hunter myself.  My only "trophy" is a knife handle made out of one of the antlers of the first deer I ever shot (3 pointer).  Since the littlebopper and distaffbopper don't care for venison, I give most of it away when I do get a deer.  But I know some trophy hunters, and they tend to be the ones who take it more seriously than the others.

It was hunters looking for trophies that started the whole conservation movement to bring hunting under federal and state regulation, to keep the subsistence hunters and market hunters from hunting the deer to extinction, like they did with the passenger pigeon and nearly did with the bison.
