I love deer! But once in the school cafeteria, they served us some really yummie shreded meat dipped in BBQ sauce and after I ate a second helping Ricky, a friend of mine said; 'Well, I hope you're happy. You just ate Bambi.' I was so mad at him but he swore to me, since he went hunting with his father, he knew what vinison tasted like. Needless to say, I never ate vinison again. And I still hate Ricky for telling me I ate Bambi. So Signed! Thnx Cher.

If the numbers of the deer in this park are the same as 10 years ago, then why are they going ahead with this senseless killing..cruelty...abuse?? Deer whether white tail or black tail are so beautiful, and so fun to watch. Be happy that they are eating well and leave them alone!

It is just an excuse to go slaughter helpless animals, like a canned hunt. They just make up a reason to kill. These deer are probably very tame and not used to being hunted so it will be a horrific cruelty!

There is a link to the National park service website. I suggest writing your congressperson to allow hunting.
That would be a better and cheaper way of bringing down the over population. If the country was chock full of money then transplanting a portion of the herd to wolf areas as deer are natural prey.
