I am not a bow hunter, but I am a gun hunter. Not a hunter in the "sporting" term, but rather a hunter in the population control term. I am a farmer and have over 3000 acres that seems to get riddled in places due to the tremendous numbers in the local deer population. We even have state issued nusence (sp?) permits. I used to enjoy the hunt, but now unfortunaly due to being so busy I am a killer, not a hunter like I once was. I do admire the sproting/talent/devotion aspect behind bow hunting but I would rather wheel then hunt. I do have some decent pics, I will see if I can get them posted up for ya.

Hunt and eat them, that's the way it goes. Now I have friends up north that don't eat meat but they love to hunt(strange I know). What they end up doing is taking the cleaned dear to the nearest "Soup Kitchen/homeless Shelter" and that makes alot of meals for needy family's..

I'm a hunter, not a trophy hunter. My family and I enjoy what I hunt and harvest. Love to eat venision, much healthier and better then store bought meat. There are some great programs out there for people who love to hunt but not eat it. Hunters for the Hungry is a very good one.

We have "Share the Harvest" in Missouri. I usually keep 2 deer a year back for our own consumption and the rest get donated. Even with our extra permits, we do not "shoot and leave lay". We harvest everything we kill. We have had some deer that were shot and had wounds that were infected, from possibly being shot before or fighting, and the donation station will not accept them, so we donate them to a local fox/coyote pen.

If I have meat left year to year I give last years to a local shelter, they greatly appreciate it.
