Shot through the window while having breakfast. That tree has some little fruits this time of year. The top is full with birds and the ground gets picked by the deer.

Is that legal? Whatever, how many were you able to hit?

That's what I was thinking, Mitch. It is deer season, and all the posts I have seen lately are by those that got one. Or more.

That's one, or more, less in front of your motorcycle.

Those are the species that tend to run in front of motorcyclists.

Kill 'em before they kill you.

 

Sadly, you are fighting a losing battle. They, like squirrels and rabbits multiply too fast.

What you said is true, but those smaller creatures have natural predators to keep them at bay and under control.

Deer on the otherhand not so much. Coyotes, wild dogs and bobcats can control deer population (at least these small.. what I call dog deers, corn fed by humans, not much smaller then a large dog), but we humans killed almost all natural predators of deer, because the predators they were threat to us.

Not really. If the DNR would up the quotas we could get rid of a lot more. However, they want a certain amount available each year for deer season.

 

They had nearly been eradicated in the Midwest by market hunters before being a protected species. In the 60's it was very rare to see a live deer in Southern Illinois. Now, due to herd management we have an over abundance. So it is a balance. Most folks don't want them all gone, just the ones that cause accidents. :dopeslap:

 

Love to see them, love to hunt them, love to eat them.

Good pic Paul. Notice how the one on the right is looking? It is almost impossible, when there is a herd of does, to not have one of them see you because one is always looking around.

Probably made the rounds already, but if you haven't heard the lady who wants the deer crossings moved to a safer location, here you go...
