A Collier County man accused of shooting two doe deer says he needed to feed his family.

The Naples Daily News reports Castillo told deputies he shot the deer because he was unemployed and needed food to feed his family. He said he was on his way home from dog hunting with his son when he spotted two deer running across the road. Castillo said he got out of his car and shot them.

Dog hunting!! That’s horrible, they probably don’t taste anywhere near as good as venison.

That’s the first thing I thought!

Have they a shortage of deer in Florida? The poor man could probably bag about 5 in my front yard-——

arrested Friday on charges of unlawful taking of doe deer, discharging a firearm from a public roadway and felony trespassing by projectile.

Trespassing by projectile?
That's a new one on me!

Shooting into private property where you shouldn’t — that COULD be dangerous. But the way it reads sounds like something out of Alice in Wonderlands.

My dad, who grew up in the depression and lived on a farm, said some people ate the bark off the trees (those not on a farm). He never saw a deer during the Depression—and still 3 million starved to death during this time.

Have had as many as five deer in backyard (off and on) for over two years. I look at this as God saying, if worse comes to worse, the meat is provided. Have not pulled the trigger. Has been tempting. Have walked within twenty feet of several grazing.

G. Gordon Liddy used to talk about this often on his radio show. His first FBI posting was in rural upstate New York where there were lots of people so poor they relied on poaching to feed their families. Back then the authorities apparently had the good sense to look the other way.

During the Great Depression, many ate what was available.

In the corn regions, many developed a condition called corn poisoning. They ate so much corn, because it was plentiful for them, that they got sick from it.

My folks spent the Depression in Iowa where there was always plenty of vegetation to eat but meat was pretty scarce unless you had cash. My father hunted squirrel and rabbit.

The sainted FDR ordered pigs and cattle be killed to keep farm prices up not caring that in addition to killing livestock he was killing Americans.

My father hunted squirrel and rabbit.

Fatback and gravy biscuits. Served at every meal with squirrel or rabbit. Father and his brother both became expert shots before the war. One shot ... One kill. Dogs were not discussed.

All that subsistence hunting made my father a crack shot, so good he spent WWII in the states instructing other grunts in marksmanship.

He never claimed hero status but maIntained that he was in uniform and under orders and was never consulted by the army as to where he should serve.

“My father hunted squirrel and rabbit.”

So did mine. Really, growing up hunting, that’s all I was taught to hunt. My dad didn’t hunt anything else because that was it. There were no deer (in the 60s,70s) unless you saw them in a zoo. No turkeys either.

His first FBI posting was in rural upstate New York where there were lots of people so poor they relied on poaching to feed their families.

I can relate to that. Growing up in Northern Pennsylvania in the '50s we ate a lot of illegal deer out of necessity (8 kids and Dad unemployed a lot of the time).

It is very likely better for us than beef because they aren't fattened up with chemical foodstuffs like they beef are in the slaughter yards.

Squirrel, groundhog, raccoon, even possum. All edible if we return to depression era conditions.

Possums are nasty from what I hear, but groundhog, if cooked right, isn’t bad at all.

My father was a CO and they didn't bother the subsistence hunters who were struggling to feed their families. The poachers, however, were hunted like prey.

I’m sure it is going on today in many parts of Pennsylvania.

And if caught and convicted, I am sure the offender is signed up for food stamps as part of his “rehabilitation”.

If the man’s story is true, leave him alone. Many game wardens known when to look the other way. Especially when the deer populations are out of control.

My brother in northern Michigan told me about a buddy of his that was a pretty well known poacher.

The buddy had a CO move just a few houses from him. Trying to be friendly with his neighbors, the CO jokingly asked the poacher if it was true that does tasted better than bucks? ( At that time there were no doe permits up there )

My brother's buddy told the CO : “I have no idea, I never ate a buck.”

that’s ridiculous. I don’t even understand WHY he needs to explain himself to any authority for taking car of himself/family in this fashion.

There was more than time I saw evidence of out of season hunting when I worked with poor families. I never said a word and neither did the sheriff if he was with me. All that mattered was the kids were being fed.

You tell these whipper snappers that there were no deer, turkey, etc, when I was their age and they don’t believe you! lol

First deer I saw in the wild I was 19 (1976) and first turkeys were in the early 80s. Had no idea what they were. Thought they were turkey buzzards wandering around.

Yep. Squirrels, rabbits and dove was about it.
