I live in a Baltimore Maryland suburb built in 1960, less than 1/2 mile from the city line on 1/4 acre. We have between 8 - 13 deer on a daily basis that graze our yard, front and back. At first I thought they were cute little Bambis but I've come to hate them. My yard is thick with ticks and poop and they've decimated foliage. They are so accustomed to city life that they actually look both ways before crossing streets. A fawn played with my dog the other day, but on another occasion my dog was kicked into the air by an angry older deer. I could literally shoot them without leaving the comfort of my den by cracking open a porch door or window, but discharging a firearm or hunting is a no-no within the Beltway. I wish that they could be rounded up and trucked to Maine in time for hunting season. There are literally tens of thousands of them in the greater Baltimore - Washington DC area. Their only predators are cars.

Sounds like you need to petition your representatives for a controlled urban hunt to thin them out.

Default White Buffalo

Yep, some towns figure its a good idea to hire companies like White Buffalo to shoot deer for $300+ of taxpayer money per head.

Actually in my opinion, that's a terrific video and a great song too! Also, in my opinion, every hunter has felt that same pre-season feeling. Whether you like country music or not, the feeling is the same among deer hunters everywhere.
(as an aside, country music actually tells a story, one that 'most' people can relate to in one way or another)

and now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

The coyote predation on our deer population is tremendous and something that we will never be able to overcome.

Our local outdoor TV6 Latest news, weather, high school sports for Michigan‚€™s Upper Peninsula - Powered by WLUC TV6 program 'Discovering' interviewed a DNR official who explained that they have increased the number of annual kills per wolf to 30 -50 based on better info because of tagged animal tracking. Maybe the reintroduction of this predator was funded by insurance cos to reduce car deer crashes We can hear the coyotes until snow season and I have been unable to catch them on the trail cam. I know they take a toll on the herd too.
