Hi there, As you guys probably know the deer around here are very annoying, And i was wondering if any one wanted them removed off their property..I am very ethical, waste no meat,and am willing to give share some of the harvest if i am blessed with a harvest. I will use a bow and have saftey as a first concern i will leave everything as it is, and not damage your property..I have no where to hunt and would like to help lower the population of our county's herd, the season starts sept 5th, thank you for your time..send me an e-mail at thepakman703@yahoo.com if you think we can work something out

I'm not a bow or crossbow hunter, but a friend of mine who is has no problem
whatsoever finding places to hunt in the Burke/Sandy Run area. He knocks on
doors on Saturday afternoons and for the most part, find property owners
very friendly to the idea. Once their neighbors find out, they call and ask
him to hunt their property too. He encounters an asshole occasionally, but
far more give him permission than the ones who turn him down or make a speech
about "Poor Little Bambi". BTW, "Bambi" is dead. I killed him 12 years ago
and he was delicious. Good luck to you.

Go get them.

Ditto for those unwelcome guests, the Canada Geese.

Any solution how to reduce their numbers?

By ethical, he might mean that he will try to prevent it from suffering an inordinately long time?

GOOSE BREAST

1 goose breast
4 stalks celery (chopped)
2 med. onions (chopped)
6 cloves garlic (chopped)

Cover bottom of pan with grease. Slice goose breast into 1 inch strips and brown. Remove goose from pan and add celery, onion and garlic and cook until all are soft. Put goose strips back into pan on top of celery, onion and garlic. Add just enough water to cover. Let simmer until tender enough to cut with a fork (about 3-4 hours).

BRAVO!! I support the bow hunter. With all the deer running around out there he better buy a couple new deep well freezers.

Among other things. Here's some other ethical considerations...

Is bow hunting considered safer then using a rifle?

I'll admit to knowing next to nothing about hunting, but I'll postulate that an arrow has much less of a chance of ripping through 3 walls of a townhouse and embedding itself in a small child, than a bullet, when errantly "shot".

I'm just sayin.....

It depends on how you look at it. Certainly, in a suburban setting, an
arrow or bolt shouldnt be as dangerous as a bullet or shot, but if you
shoot a deer with a bow, it could run into a roadway and cause accidents.
Gotta be very careful and make sure theres plenty of room for it to run
when hit.

Same thing could happen when shot with a rifle. Deer are incredibly resilient creatures. I put a slug right through the heart of a deer once and it ran a good 50 yards before it dropped. I helped my brother in law trail one that he shot, it went for probably half a mile before it fell. About the only way to guarantee that they drop right there is to hit them with a bullet in the shoulder blades; an arrow won't do it.

FairfaxDude was right about the bow-only logic for suburban areas. An arrow will likely go a couple of hundred yards at most, and then only when fired haphazardly into the air. Bullets, on the other hand, can go for miles when shot like that, and can still fly a good distance after ricocheting off something hard. Also, an arrow hitting the side of a house will likely only go through the siding, insulation, and a bit of drywall. A bullet can go through several rooms worth of walls before stopping.

mJHpm's link summed up exactly what I meant by ethics, and with a well placed lungshot the deer would fall in sight of the hunter, i would also be willing to help someone with any goose problems, just email, and thanks to all the positive comments and hunter2 for the tip

yes. you are far more likely to survive being hit by and arrow than a bullet.

Sometimes its worse. I have known people who feed them corn regularly because
they think they're so cute and that the deer will starve if they don't feed
them. (until one comes crashing through their windshield) Go figger.

Whether you're killed by an arrow or by a rifle bullet, you're still dead. Don't discount arrows just because they're not fired from a gun. Both will ruin your day very easily, no matter where you're hit.

yeah... but when you get shot by an arrow you have the time to get to a hospital, that was my point.

Should the friends of the deer come on here and talk about what a good deer it was?

I bet the deer attended Westfield or South Lakes.
