    I went out to hunt some deer
    On a mornin’ bright and clear.
    I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
    Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.—Tom Lehrer

    I recall the farmer with a black horse that took white shoe polish and wrote in foot tall letters HORSE on the horse’s sides.

    I remember reading about a farmer in Michigan painting an Angus cow with “COW”. The cow was shot anyway.

    Virginia has been bagging hunters over the last decade with “robo deer”. A twelve point buck “grazing” near the side of the road that can lift its head up and look around before bending over to eat again. Apparently, some hunters can’t resist pulling off of the road and firing from their car at the deer.
    Over time, more and more hunters find they can resist the urge to do this as more and more hunters and friends of hunters get arrested for shooting a life size Deer doll.

    I always liked hunting, but in order to go hunting now, I have to travel over two hours to property owned by a friend. He and his neighbors ban atv’s and suv’s on their property. Hunters have to ask before trespassing and have to walk in and walk out. If they kill a deer, they leave a haunch or other cut as payment for access. To some, hunting is cruel and unnecessary. To folks like me, it is another good reason to spend time in the woods. I assure those offended by hunting that I have come home empty handed many more times than I did with meat, but I was still a better person for having spent the day among the trees.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    The hunter probably thought the deer had camouflaged itself. Like this lady who really didn’t understand why everybody was giggling:

    Please move the deer crossing

    Once had a “hunter” from New York who asked me to sign off on his deer tag. I pointed out deer don’t have shoes, and must have antlers to be “legal”. The guy had shot, AND field dressed, a burro! Of course, I contacted the owner, and it became the most prized, and expensive, burro the New Yorker could have imagined.

    Remember the great Gary Larsen’s wonderful cartoon of 2 deer, one with a bullseye on its flank, and the other deer saying “Bummer of a birthmark, Hal”?

    While driving on I-70 through Vail one fall, we stopped to inform a car load of Texans to stop shooting at a deer trapped by the high fence on the highway. The frontage road was directly behind the deer, and full of vehicles. Ah, so was the town of Vail!

    They missed shooting the deer by the way.
