  • Be careful out there.

    Yesterday morning I was traveling at 45 mph down a semi rural two-lane highway on my way to a doctor's appointment when suddenly a large buck with a huge rack flashed in front of me. An oncoming SUV hit the deer on the rump tossing it off the highway. I was driving subcompact and had I approached a split-second sooner the buck and I would've undoubtedly stopped there -- permanently. Be careful out there.

    Frustrated by his own failures as a deer hunter this newly begun season, a 34-year-old central Minnesota man was caught after stealing a buck dangling from a tree at the home of a more successful marksman, authorities said Monday. The theft occurred midday Sunday from a home in Millwood Township and was reported to the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office by a group of hunters that had several deer carcasses hanging in a tree, said Chief Deputy Bruce Bechtold.

After years of bitter debate, Cayuga Heights decided that the deer population would be controlled through sterilization at enormous expense: NY Town spends $2,984 per deer in sterilization programBecause Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right The Cayuga Heights deer control was mostly a failure because, you know, deer move around, so sterilizing deer in Cayuga Heights didn’t prevent new deer from coming into the area.

    The start of bow-hunting season has prompted an outrage in the Suffolk County community of Kings Park. As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported exclusively Thursday, residents are upset that bow-hunting is being allowed closer to homes inside a recently-renovated nature trail. Bow-hunter Scott Trafas was readying his bow Thursday, and deer along the Kings Park trail would be well advised to run. It is mating season for the animals, and for Trafas, it’s time to hunt. “We need to control the deer population,” Trafas said. “I mean, people complain that deer run out, and they’re in the road, and they’re...

Beginning Saturday, bow hunters can enter the deep woods of the region even if the search for the suspect, Eric Frein, is still under way, more than three weeks after the September 12 shooting. Since then, hundreds of officers, supported by armored vehicles and helicopters, have combed the forests of northeastern Pennsylvania looking for...

Minnesota drivers have the 8th highest odds of hitting a deer among the 50 states, according to the report, down from 6th highest in last year’s report.

    Ted SieferJune 16, 2014 Deer ticks, also known as blacklegged ticks, are the prime carriers of Lyme disease, which is particularly common in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Large numbers of ticks, the parasites that carry Lyme disease, are expected to emerge in New England in the coming weeks, experts said on Friday. Abundant snow over the winter and a wet spring have created ideal conditions for ticks to come out in the warm weather and try to latch onto hosts, they said. "The next three to four weeks is the peak season of risk," said Sam Telford, an infectious disease...

    Will a warming world eventually kill off roe deer in France? That question is being raised in light of new research indicating that the animals are having a hard time adapting to climate change. In a study published Tuesday in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, researchers tracked the births and subsequent survival of roe deer fawns in France's Champagne region. They noted that spring vegetation on which the adult deer depend for food was starting to flourish two weeks earlier that it did nearly three decades ago, due to gradual warming. But although spring was arriving earlier, the animals' birth...

    The booming deer population in the northern United States is bad for the animal's beloved hemlocks, a new study finds. During Michigan winters, white-tailed deer converge on stands of young hemlocks for protection from winter chill and predators. The same deer return every year to their favorite clumps of the bushy evergreens, called deeryards. The high concentration of deer in a small space saturates the soils with nitrogen from pee, according to a study published online in the journal Ecology. While deer pee can be a valuable source of nitrogen, a rare and necessary nutrient for plants, some deeryards are...

Classical economic theory is based largely on principles of causation and assumptions of rational behavior coupled with the free flow of information and minimal governmental interference. Under those assumptions, the interplay of supply and demand causes price fluctuations just as changes in prices cause changes in supply and demand. However, some of those assumptions are invalid, as President Obama recognizes. This clip of a recent guest appearance by his Special Economic Adviser during a radio broadcast deals with causation in a metaphorical context far easier to understand...

    “Donna the Deer Lady” is in on the joke and, in a follow-up interview with the Fargo, N.D. radio station that made her a YouTube sensation, said she now feels “incredibly stupid” about her misconception about deer-crossing signs. Donna’s first call to Y94 “Morning Playhouse” was on Sep. 17 during their weekly “vent line.” She said she had been in three car accidents involving deer in the past few years, and all of these accidents occurred shortly after she saw a deer-crossing sign. “My frustration is that the Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings...

    Rudolph the red-state reindeer? A Texas couple determined to find out who had been damaging a sign in their front yard proclaiming their support for President Obama's re-election bid caught the offender on Wednesday. Tom Priem, a software support engineer in Austin, told FoxNews.com he and his wife, who live on a block where political signs dot front yards, were fed up with seeing only their Obama sign repeatedly defaced. “The sign had holes poked in it like somebody had stuck a knife through it,” Priem said Friday. “At first I thought it was somebody who didn’t like Obama.” Priem...

    Deer doesn't dig this dude's display Homeowner catches the destroyer Updated: Thursday, 20 Sep 2012, 5:34 PM CDT Published : Wednesday, 19 Sep 2012, 2:57 PM CDT Pamela Cosel AUSTIN (KXAN) - It seemed a dastardly deed -- destroying the display of a devoted Democrat. The homeowners didn't determine who, not once but four times, deliberately devastated the yard sign that depicted their beloved president, front-yard decor which said they were supporters of the dashing Barack Obama. They decried the destruction. They didn't know how to deter the defamation -- a direct assault on their property. Was it the devil?...

    Guns have two main purposes: self-defense and entertainment such as hunting and shooting competitions. You don’t typically see a lot of overlap between the worlds of self-defense and hunting. You’d probably get arrested if you tried to carry your shotgun or hunting rifle around town so that you could use it for self-protection, and bringing your compact pistol out into the woods for a day of hunting is a little bit silly. In rare cases, however, the worlds of hunting and self-defense clash with bruising force. Such was the case in Fertile, Minnesota, where 66-year-old Mark Christianson had a close...
