Do the crime do the time.

Isn't it kind of nutty to be locking up people for feeding deer?

I can definitely think of a few people I'd rather see locked up than her.

I use to think those guys who said the end of society was near were strange, now I pay attention, too many people, to many dumb laws, to many dumb cops enforceing dumb laws, to many retard Juges, I want to find me a spot up in the mountains and get away from this madness. It is time.

So I suppose baiting is out of the question, then.

She has guts, though. I'd be a bit nervous trying to pull ticks out of the ears of a wild animal with antlers.

Ironically, I sometimes think a midwest town might be a haven.

You have a point though, it is odd that if an individual willfully takes the life of another, their is debate about whether or not a crime has really been committed, if the perp had "a bad upbringing" or "society screwed'em" or they were hopped up on something at the moment of the act.

However if you feed deer, well, that is definitely a crime (against whom though? society? The deer?).

Consider yourselves lucky if you don't have CWD in your wild herds. I know Bitmasher does as he lives in Colorado. I don't intend to debate the baiting issue here, however I do agree that it needs to be controlled so as to prevent the transmission of this and other diseases. I have seen bait piles in excess of 2 ton with a steady herd of whitetails grazing around it. The deer are heavily congregated and poorly controlled as the bait piles owner is intent on shooting only a trophy buck...Baiting in Wisconsin got way out of control. I'd like to see it brought back in moderation but enforcement is difficult with minimal man power. For now the fear of heavy fines is really the only deterent.

I have seen water holes that were basicly giant mud puddles and for some reason, minerals I suppose, every deer in a 50 mile radius watered there, I would guess that CWD could be spread this way also. Maybe the DNR could vacinate by a feed type of vacination CWD into oblivion, as smallpox was . Just a rambling thought.
