What are the deer “saying” with their raised tails and jerking head motions? Wouldn’t a hunter like to know?

They are saying don't shoot me don't kill me because I am innocent! I don't know how anyone can shoot and kill a innocent and defenseless animal like a deer. It's simply murder. And there is no need to hunt today with farming and plenty of food in the stores to sustain you. I don't hunt, have never hunted, and will never start hunting. I would not enjoy it.

Oimmigration: Where do you think your beef, pork, fish, poultry and other meats come from? Not to mention leather goods. They are/were innocent and defenseless animals, no different than deer in the wild. At least the deer were able to live in their native habitat for part of their life. That food in the stores does not appear from a Star Trek replicator. It was once a live animal. Deer hunting is not murder. Murder would be deer killing deer. Your duty is not to understand how anyone can shoot and kill a deer. Just allow us the freedom to hunt deer to provide hobby/recreation/food for our families. There are other benefits to deer hunting: Controlling deer population to avoid starvation and suffering, reduce human and deer traffic deaths from car/deer collisions.

Venison is organic, grass-fed, free-range and delicious. It is much more healthy for you than animals raised on confinement farms. Also, if deer hunting was easy, then every one would get one.....fewer than 1 in 3 hunters bag one.
