    Nah. it’s always been referred to that way.If you’ve ever seen the statistics for deer related car collisons in this state.You’d understand why it’s called herd management.They even have an urban hunting weekend in some of the bigger towns because there are so many.Bows only and in designated areas of course.

    I wish for better health @MrogersNhood . I would love to take my wife on the hike up to the top of the mountain we used to hunt back in the day. Been maybe 30 years since I been there but I could walk right to my blind to this day. I would rather take a side-by-side up the fire road to get there. Much easier on these old tired hips.

    I can see the "urban hunters" now. Dressed like out of Duke Nukem.

    I would never buy one. My neighbor has two that he never uses, and he lets me take one out whenever I want. I only use it about 3 times a year, and it is fun when I do.

    I had deer all around me this evening. I got lazy though and it showed. I had out some fresh buck urine out and had three different bucks come in and wheeze and stomp and snort but would not come any closer. Doe's came around but would not get close either, they would snort and run. Tomorrow morning I wont be pressed for time so out early, have a good cover scent and a ground blind. I dont think the peak rut has started yet. The bucks are really starting to get aggressive with scrapes and rubs though. Any day now.

    You should tag along with me sometime.........

    I'm in FL at the moment helping my dad. I witnessed a raccoon milling about in the hotel parking lot.

    I spend a lot of time in the woods hunting....fishing also. We put a fair amount of food in the freezer....I'm a meat hunter.

    Was hunting deer and elk 2 weeks ago and was surrounded by deer and elk. I bowhunt and could not get a decent shot at anything. They were close.....like 10 yards close. The elk were screaming....what a sound to hear. I could not get a shot due to being caught in a bunch of thick scrub oak. Had one bull at 10 yards and only had a cow tag....such is hunting.

    I do a bunch of photography for a hunting organization and really enjoy being outdoors. So far, 1 antelope is in the freezer.

    I'm sorry for that. I was unable to go during bow season. I don't gun hunt anymore. During bow season, the woods is in its natural state, so pretty. Once the first gun goes off, the deer that were using one path, now use 3 different ones.

    I plan on going next year.

    They eat a hell of a lot better than deer, too. I cooked one yesterday.
    Wise move...and it's a shame, something as tied to our history, as primal, as generation-bonding...as ENJOYABLE AT THE TABLE...as hunting, should be divisive.

    But it is. The sad part of it is, the natural predators of deer, lynx and cougars...lynx don't like people; and have moved out of areas such as upstate NY. Deer are left with no predators; and when hunting went out of fashion, the deer population exploded.

    As did injuries and deaths from hitting deer on highways.

    Mountain lions, I'm here to tell you...adapt better to human presence. They adapt; WE do NOT. They are silent, and when they feel the urge, they attack. Deer...or hikers. They've been found stalking hikers on trails all over Montana; and it is not illegal to shoot one in self-defense.

    In fact it's encouraged of outdoorsmen, to be prepared, including with firearms.

    I think that to understand the reason this is a quarrelsome topic, you need to understand why so much else of public interest is now so confrontative.
