You chose flying deer?

" fences and infrared moose detectors"

and you went with flying deer?

And out in B.C., they have to elbow the things out of the way just to walk down the street. Yeesh.

So how does this work again? We fly in some wolves to eat the deer, then some golden eagles to eat the wolves, then some gorillas to eat the eagles?...

Right kill all the deer because some snowflake is a crappy driver.

They have a deathwish almost equaled by possum. The long legged rats actually adjust course to be hit when you swerve around them.

Darrell Hall from Hall & Oates fame wants a deer genocide after his bout with Lyme Disease.

Me, I just like the tast of the cherry, cherries...

If only there was a group of people who would be willing to dress up in strange costumes and go into the woods with, oh, I don't know, maybe guns or even bows (I know, I know, sounds ludicrous) in order to kill and maybe even eat these things.

Alas, there is no one willing to do this sort of thing, let alone pay for the privilege.

Couple things:  1. cull /= deer genocide. 2. As another Farker put it, they're the Screamapiller of the woodlands world.  They have an almost sexual attraction to motor vehicles. They don't march down the side of the road and then just jump out like a conman trying to collect a lawsuit.  They're usually hidden in between trees and then jump out.  No amount of high beams will pick them up before they're on the road. I nearly ran into a whole family of the damn things driving in the backwoods of Nova Scotia (well...Enfield) at 60 km/h.

I'm sure you meant well, but your response was 100% off base.

I'm always amazed by the fact that it is extremely difficult for person to creep up on the damn things on foot, yet a 2 ton vehicle hurtling towards them at high velocity seems to evoke no fear in them whatsoever.

There were so many deer in the area this one year when living in Saskatchewan that each hunter could LEGALLY take 4 deer. ( with proper tags of course )  went driving in a grain field late on night after harvest but before the snow set in.  There was a heard of close to 50 deer running around.

got dang that was fun.

That's only because most cars don't carry guns. And I think yeegrek is correct, there is some sort of attraction going on. They do see a little masochistic.

All I can think of there is "sensory overload".  At some point, their brain shuts down and they dart for what they think is the nearest refuge.

Natural resources here in Manitoba is saying populations have been steadily going up. This current cold snap will do it's part in thinning the herds.

southern bc... yes.  Here in the north the wolves and winters have killed off a lot of our mule deer and moose

actually...

depending on the area... the crazy amount of snow will do more harm than the cold.

the predators that prey on deer are more able to run on top the deep drifts the deer will get trapped and be easy pickings.

I had one charge at me at night.  Bugger tried to ram the side of the truck.

Missed the truck, hit the trailer. which I'd borrowed to haul my competition car halfway across the country.  I am unsure what is worse, that it mangled my car, that it mangled the trailer (that I had to repair before returning it), or that I didn't even get a good skull trophy, just a bunch of blood and fur.

infrared moose detectors

This is why I wanted to get into science.

We Canadians ought to begin acting like treaty people since we are treaty people. I agree.

My roommate and his buddy tried all season to bag a deer in central interior BC, and came away empty handed.

I honestly didn't know such thing was possible.

/I'd come along and get grouse and rabbit so that they wouldn't starve

Digital cameras respond to more than just the visual spectrum, so if you look through its display, you should be able to see infrared moose.

I'm not worried about me being able to see them....

Deer are a big problem in western Maryland. I'll see several herds on the train to DC in the morning, numbering at least 20 each. They'll start culling them when tbey start denting people's BMWs.And yes, those stupid farkers go out of their way to get hit.

I was actually being snarky but the responses have been entertaining and educational.

The expression "deer caught in a headlight" comes to mind.
