peta member????? how can u say its not hunting? Is it just because they got so many deer? Some places are overrun and need to take out deer in numbers like that but why bash them for it? I do agree that the pic is a little gruesome but if it was done legally I dont understand how you can say thats not hunting its a slaughter just because they got so many deer? :thumbs_do
I live up in Bemidji but am from Eau Claire. This is from the Eau Claire Paper. 16 bucks and 42 does. From what i heard from friends in Eau Claire is that this group drives corn fields and patches of woods in farms all season in a very arge group. I'll try to find the article.
It looks to me like a bunch of hunters killed some deer. I consider that hunting, not a slaughter. If everyone was legal, then good for them. I'm certainly not going to tell them that they shouldn't try to fill their tags while hunting, I don't understand your disgust.
I wouldn't want a bunch of deer hanging from my tree like that, but I would be happy if everyone in my hunting group had a successful season.
I wouldnt take the extra time to hang all those in the tree for a picture.It just looks odd since there is so many deer but if it was just two deer no one would even think Twice about it. It does look like a slaughter but if they are all tagged then theres not a issue. Anti's will find anything to whine about so who cares what they think. It doesnt look like they are concerned to much for Trophy management either. They must have thought of having a big BBQ!!:tongue:
If all are taken legally, then this is not a slaughter. I don't know how many tags are allowed up there but here in GA. each person gets 12,due to the sheer numbers of deer. This maybe an example of an extened family hunt where all uncles, aunts, sisters and brothers get together, do a drive and supply meat for the clan. If it was just a few lucky individuals then let them take the meat they want to use for themselves and donate the rest to the needy.
