Hunting as a long term solution
BuckI'm convinced that hunting is the long term solution to our deer overpopulation problem.  Unfortunately, most state game laws cater to hunters and promote deer overpopulation by placing strict limits on the number of deer each hunter can kill.

The Quality Deer Management Association has a better strategy that is likely to please hunters, farmers, and city-dwellers alike. 
The Association advocates new game laws that would require hunters to kill several does each year before they are allowed to kill a buck.

The policy has been put into place in a few states already, and scientists have noticed that as doe populations decline, buck sizes increase --- a bonus for the deer hunters who crave massive, twelve-point bucks.  And as deer densities retreat to more manageable levels, the pressure on our gardens should relax.
