There are too many deer and not enough predators, to the point that it's bad for the deer herd and bad for the rest of the environment.

Every time there is a hunt to reduce the deer herds near where I live there are protesters wielding "please don't shoot Bambi" signs...of course when the winter is rough Bambi starves to death. Which is more humane?

Did you you see how sweet and friendly those deer can be, obviously this animal could have been spared euthinization. I hope someone at least got a nice fuzzy hat from its tail, it looks pretty cold in those parts this time of year.

Yeaaa...

Do you know how sweet and friendly a pig can be?  However, they are made out of bacon, so I have no problem tolerating the mass murder and butchering of those cute cuddlies.  Same goes with deer.  I hope it was killed humanely, then it's meat given to a food bank.  You can feed a lot of hungry people off of just one deer.

2013-12-25 09:12:54 AM  
Deer in my area are literal pests. DNR hands out nuisance animal permits to any farmer who asks.

The other solution to hunts to keep the deer population down, would be reintroduction of deer predators like wolves. I doubt that'll be accepted too well.
 
2013-12-25 09:13:12 AM  
There's already a final solution for the overpopulation of deer in Illinois, it's called Epizootic hemorrhagic disease(EHD) and has put a serious hurt on the state's deer population. The deer harvest is way down in Illinois this year. State wildlife biologist are blaming bad weather for the first two gun seasons for the low numbers but I believe that EHD hit the deer a lot harder than they think or are saying. I know I hunted more days both bow and gun this year and did not see as many deer as I normally do. Other hunters I know are saying the same thing, just not seeing the deer.

I guess they could have taken it to wildlife prairie park, which is a local HUGE open park in central Illinois, and there nursed it back to health, and it would have been released to be with the other deer there. But, that would have taken money and extra time. I guess a bullet is cheaper.

Trust me, you don't want it in the deer herd. Seen the results of this and Bluetongue, isn't pretty.

The problem with letting disease manage the deer population is the same as the problem with letting predators manage it. They inevitably do a crummy, wasteful, and inefficient job, and they can't be convinced to stop doing it even after it's been accomplished, let alone made to limit their culling to deer alone. The only sensible reason to use biological alternatives is if you have a job that must be done and don't have time or material to do it with fully monitored human activity, so you have no choice but to turn loose a self-replicating organism with instincts that you hope you can exert a little control over. Unfortunately, environmentalists prefer biological alternatives to be the first resort instead of the last resort, because they don't really love the environment, they simply hate humans, and emotionally reject any solutions that involve human actions or -- GOD FORBID -- are profitable to humans.

You know how they could say this deer was sick? Try walking up and petting a healthy deer. In the incredibly slim chance that the deer doesn't run away, it will instead kick the ever loving shiat out of you.
 
2013-12-25 10:11:28 AM  
We should have instead let the live deer be eaten buzzards and such on the side of the rode for little Susie to see. Thus teaching natural selection and survival of the fittest.

Several years ago, a guy at the office was very anti-hunting and would talk about how beautiful white tail deer were and would wonder how anyone could stand to shoot one.  One Monday morning, his car wasn't in the parking lot but he was in the office.  He had hit a deer at highway speed with his new Volvo.  I didn't see the car but he said the front end was gone and the hood had flipped back and folded itself over the car roof and he felt lucky to be alive.

This episode changed his views on hunting.  He thought the deer kill limit should be increased to "one pickup truck load per redneck".  He claimed to have bought deer hunting tags for as many economically downtrodden young men as he could find in his living area.  While I don't think he ever hunted them himself, his one man crusade undoubtedly led to a deer holocaust near his home area.

Here in Illinois, the DNR refuses to open up public lands for hunting and brings in sharp-shooters to kill them.
All meat is left to rot.

Illinois is a biatch when it comes to some things.

This.  Screw sportsman wanting to keep deer alive though.  Deer are as much vermin as are rats.  Not only do they have a yearning to hang out in front of moving vehicles, they can and do destroy property and gardens and spread disease.  The only way they "contribute" is meat that a limited number of people find tasty.

I say those people can raise and harvest them.  Kill the wild ones wholesale.

Thanks to deer being so stupid when crossing highways, deer collisions are responsible for approx 120 deaths/year and millions in property damage.

Some enviormentilists believe that. Don't forget, there are crazies in every group, such as the sane, rational Christans vs Ted Cruz's Dad.
Yes, there are incredibly stupid econuts who don't want any one hurting the fluffy little bunny and think every thing would be just great if we went back to hunter-gather times. They seem to think that nature is like a kids cartoon and that it's all perfect and happy until the big bad man comes and wrecks it, oblivious to the fact that nature is a beautiful but harsh mistress.

Not deer, but another example of how animal rights activists fark things up:


This was about 25 years ago, there was a small herd of buffalo at Fort Wingate, NM & there was no food for them & instead of letting them starve to death in the coming winter Game & Fish decided to hold a special hunt. "Special" meaning it was a lottery, $1500 to get in on it & only a small number would win, with the money going to NMDGF, weapons had to be basically 1880s single-shot buffalo rifles (much more challenging), the hunter got 100 lbs of meat with the rest of the animal going to the local tribes. Win-win all around right?


Until the animal lovers managed to get the hunt stopped, Game & Fish had to give the money back, the tribes of course got nothing & the herd did starve to death the following winter.


So fark those asshats.

"How could they say this deer was sick?" Knight said. "He was not trying to hurt me. He let me hold him. What they did was sad."

When a wild animal loses his natural fear/suspicion of humans it's a pretty good sign there's something wrong with it.

1,278 killed in my County alone this season (we lead the state, 3rd year in a row)

And that's just the legal total for the deer season.

Tim Schweizer, a DNR spokesman, said he didn't know about the local incident, but he said the agency often kills seriously injured deer.

Sure they do. That's why when I called the Michigan DNR and begged them to come kill a deer that I'd found in the woods with his back leg hanging off and the front leg mangled beyond belief, they told me, "No, we don't do that stuff." I didn't have a gun (I probably wouldn't have been able to shoot the deer anyway) and I had to leave it in the woods to die.

Assholes. I'm still mad about that.
