yeah, but people don't build water parks in swamps... like it or not hunters provide a public service. If hunters didn't hunt we would have to figure out some other means of population control. The fact is that if deer populations were not thinned we would be overrun with deer and they would wander into roads with great frequency causing property damage and loss of human life. That is the fact. Putting a 30.06 round on a space the size of a paper plate from 100 yards undetected is no easy task. Deer aren't stupid. They have keen instincts and the ability to escape. I don't hunt but I appreciate the social benefit hunters provide and I understand how difficult it is to do what they do. Don't you understand that if there were no recreational hunters that the government would have to employ hunters to trim the populations? Would you want to pay for that? There is no cause or justification for tying a wounded dog to a tree and burning it with cigars and beating it with clubs. That's wrong.
