Hey Park, Don't trust any of them and I don't mean ANY!! Keep your hands on your wallet and your eyes on them at all times and you might and I say might survive the night. I do however wish you luck on the new angel and I'm sure she is but make sure she doesn't swap those wings in for a dagger after the 1st yr.

i love when i hear that thing about, "there are more deer here today, than when george washington was here." HOW THE HELL DO U KNOW? how rediculous to make such a statement. ive seen the way the wars were fought baack then, stand in a straight line, and just keep shooting and see who has more guys left. and, the way they practiced medicine, a guy get pnemonia, and they figure the best treatment would be to drain a bucket of blood from him. and i should believe they had some kind of sophisticated way to count the deer population? please! anyhow, one last question, in all seriousness. lets just say this "deer management " thing continues. every man is allowed 40 deer per season, of course every man will not fill his limit, but, in 50 years, do u think there will be more deer than there are today? less? none at all? be honest now.

To answer your question honestly, I think there will be at least if not more deer in 50 years as there are now. You can thank hunters for their conservation efforts the past 50 years. I think we have done a pretty good job!

OK, perhaps you haven't taken notice then....

Deer have adapted to having LESS natural habitat to survive in and HAVE adapted to the habitats created by man. Which is why people have deer running around in their backyards, eating crops, and playing in the roads causing xxxx #'s of accidents per year.

So yes, while other species die out because of the threat of mankind, deer have adapted to it and are thriving.

so then, in 50 years, when there are no woodlands, where will they "thrive?" maybe get an apartment or something?
