    I love it when this happens. It almost makes the world seem livable.

    An area with so many deer that they've had to hire professional sharp shooters to knock down the population and have attempted deer birth control...

    ...but hey, it's cute that he interfered with nature taking it's course on a massively overpopulated herd that is causing significant human safety problems as well as habitat destruction for a number of other species.

    A friend of my dad is a hunter. He brought us some homemade venison sausage once. It was fantastic.

    Venison jerky is really good as well. Makes me glad to have friends that hunt.

    Never had a jerky I didn't like. Haven't tried venison yet, but I'd like to.

    I've average two deer a year for the last 6 years - but I live in a state where we shoot ~500,000 every year just to keep up with population growth.

    The deer used to be kept in check by wolves. We killed the wolves. This government interference in hunting is ridiculous. Deer populations are pandemic in the Northeast. Kill a deer, feed a family, save a car. It's win Win no matter how you slice it.
