As I sit here, I have the desire to take a deer home with me. Somewhere in these vast woods a buck is stepping, with no warning that today is the day that I capture him. There is an ominous crow cackle, one that any protagonist would consider as a warning, I consider it an opportunity. My deer did not accept this warning; at least it was not shown. Today was opening day for bow season in Michigan, which is the most peaceful of the opening days, with the exception of a few hunters who are frustrated with their archery skills and resort to gun powder.
This could lead to them wondering into cities and highways causing car accidents. Without some type of deer control, they multiply. Since deer have lost some land areas due to cities growing, they do not have enough food and start to slowly starve. Thus hunting is a good choice for deer management. Coyotes and bears are a common sight in the woods.
Humans have been hunting on this planet for over two million years. Our ancestors used complex hunting techniques to ambush and kill antelopes, gazelles, and other large animals dated back to times before Christ. People all around the world still carry on the tradition, but the view on hunting is not the same as it was back then. The world is so industrialized, and people think hunting is cruel and useless because you can buy meat at grocery stores. But in reality, it is the reason the wildlife they see are not extinct.
When bucks are in a rut they will make scrapes on little trees or bushes and use their antlers to make scrapes on the ground like moving leaves around, they do this to mark their territory. So other bucks don't come into their territory and take their does away. The approximate size of the land the deer stay on is about a mile square all the time. Unless they get spooked by something or someone. Deer stay in a mile square because that is their terriory.
Farmers have been known to kill the deer “inhumanely” when they trespass on their land, many hunters believe that it is better to hunt the deer than to let a farmer take a random shot at it, they say that hunting is a lot more human for the animal and they don’t feel the pain, they die instantly. Many businesses in the hunting towns rely hugely on the hunts. Many of the businesses would be out of business if hunting was to be banned in the UK. Some of the businesses affected would be: · Saddlery · Hotels · Pubs Many of the proprietors of these businesses believe in hunting and believe that it has to be done to stop the deer eating all the crops and ruining the countryside by eating everything! Hunters, as you know use dogs to chase the deer, although the dogs never actually come into contact with the deer, and the deer are never ever attacked by the dogs, the dogs are used purely to track the
Men hunting deer for meat was still a necessity for most families for survival was still prevalent. The big cattle Barons who supplied the troops with meat, had problems now with coyotes, wolves, attacking their cattle, got together an put bounties on these animals to protect their investments. As these farmers’ extensive cotton production and hunting grew, it put a large dent in the deer herd population drastically. By the 1900s, the population had reached an all-time low, the public became concerned, talks about conservation were talked about, and Laws were put in place to protect the herds. Just after WWII, a re... ... middle of paper ... ... will mate their first year, because of more abundant nutrition less stress because of less predators lurking.
It could not be put any simpler than that. A few weeks ago some of my boyfriends friends decided to go poaching. They are regular hunters and knew of such a law because they have been hunting since they knew how to walk. But, they decided to let the best of them take over. They went out at 3 am one morning to a field they knew they could find deer at.

They cause their livestock to become stressed and the wolves will also kill many of the younger livestock for food.
A quick slice and the psychotic, evil deer was laying on the ground out cold. The twenty bucks was mine! Then, as I was cutting the deer open, a button buck jumped out of the evil deer, and my monster buck disappeared! As the deer hopped away I noticed two things.
America needs to fall back in love with hunting. At the end of the 19th century, Americans had hunted more than a few species to the point of near extinction—the fur trade had nearly wiped out beavers and venison (deer meat) was on the dinner table almost every night. Recognizing the coming crisis, we launched the country into conservation mode, with activists vigilantly working to save America’s wildlife. Concurrent with these efforts, many Americans were moving closer to nature, establishing small towns and suburbs, and bringing with them trashcans, flowerbeds, and lush lawns—a smorgasbord for the nearby wildlife. Jim Sterba, author of Nature Wars: The Incredible Story of How Wildlife Comebacks Turned Backyards into Battlegrounds, was quoted in Time Magazine as saying: We create all these food sources.
