Here in CT, we have a little problem called Lyme Disease. It is spreading slowly across the nation. Soon to be in a backyard near you!!. Nasty little disease, spread exclusively by Ixodes Scapularis, aka The Deer Tick. The nymphs feed on anything with red blood. But the adults feed exclusively on deer. They have done studies that show a direct link between the deer population and the deer tick population. Less, deer, less deer ticks, less sick people. They pose a direct threat to public health. Yet hunters are treated like criminals. I personally don't hunt. But the rest of you can shoot all of the deer you want. Give the meat to soup kitchens. Great protein source, low in fat!!
