Actually, on Long Island they bring in archery hunters to cull the deer population because it has grown so much in the densely populated suburbs where there are not any predators(eastern coyote) and houses are too close together(500’) to shoot guns.

Geez I hope they post YouTube videos of the social workers trying to chase down the bucks and put the rubbers on them. See, I knew all those condom-application classes wouldn’t go to waste!

I can think of a pretty good way to control the deer population. Cheap. Easy. Heck, you likely could get someone to pay for the priviledge.

I was thinking venison bacon, myself. With a few sausages and roasts for good measure.

AHHHahahahahaha. Citiots.

You be the one to tell an angry buck in rut that he can't get any action. Those antlers aren't for decoration.

The solution for suburban deer causing problems. Bows. Arrows.
