I was watching the nightly news a second ago and it said there were over 1.5 million deer collisions reported last year. Thats a lot. More than drunk driving or weather related accidents. And there are Americans that do not want folks to hunt deer. :coffee:

Makes sense don't it
it makes sense. but if we wernt alowed to hunt deer then there would be over population, and that causes sickness, starvation, and two or three times as many deer colissions. which causes me to believe that some states or countries should have people hunting seasons.

I Just tell them to get out my face until they grow a brain cell....
PETA would rather see people Die in auto accidents than to have hunters manage the Game populations, just more proof of what few brain cells they share within the entire PETA organization...

Some just dont understand the importance of keeping the nubers managed. I would much rather Hunt them rather then hit them with my vehicle :yes:

January 12 2006 I was riding home on my 2006 HD streetglide and hit a doe at about 75mph.
The deer exploded and myself the motorcycle and what was left of the deer skid 213ft before we stoped.
From that day on I swore that if I had a tag in my pocket no doe would ever walk under my stand again and walk away unharmed if I could help it. I was luckey. During the summer I read every week where a deer kills a rider or passenger. The non hunting public just wont understand untill it hits home (literely) .
I just thank GOD that my wife wasnt on back at the time.

they dont seem to realize that if we dont hunt them. then the population will be so much larger that the nuber of deer/car accidents will skyrocket. at least 300%. not to menton the sickness, starvation, effect on cfarmers crops, and much more. i agree they just need a brain cell. but cranalrectumitus causes brain cells to die so . . . .

I am an insurance adjuster here in Michigan and I can tell you first hand that in the last 5 years car/deer collisions has increased steadily each year. The average car/deer collison claim is $2700 dollars, that's alot. I've had to deal with some very disturbing wrecks and a few fatalities, it's amazing the damage they can do. I've never related car/deer collisons and hunting till I went deer hunting for the first time this year and really stopped to think about the more deer we have the more acidents there will be. Unfortunatley the area I live in is very poplulated and we have alot of deer but no hunting. My wife now gets mad at me since I won't let her drive at night on certain roads that I know have high deer population, she just doesn't know the danger that is lurking in the woods on the side of the road.
