Too many deer, I always have bow hunters work my 3 acres, during the season.

For the most part they are successful.

Just needs to be done, to bring the numbers down.

I disagree. There are too many humans.

Thread jack

You would be wrong in this. Not to thread jack, but if the deer herd isn't thinned out they will over populate and starve since we no longer have the wolves to keep the population in control.

If we didn't encroach on their natural habitats, they wouldn't be forced into a smaller area to become ''overpopulated''. Wolves or not, they have many natural predators. Like rack hungry hunters. Sorry if I offend, I generalize as there are a large amount of people in our area who hunt strictly for the trophy to put on their wall. Not directed at you OZ, at jimmyh. Guess I should've quoted him, not you.

No insurance paid for all the parts but i had to pay to have all the parts painted black. Insurance actually made out because the chrome grill cost more the just the plain black plastic and since paint doesnt stick very well to chrome the shop ordered the black one , saving insurance company a few bucks. All together paint and labor for the items painted black was $300. Pro tech out of stafford va was where work was done. Great set of guys over there

The painted valence and grill looks great, a nice subtle touch!!

That, "encroach on their natural habitats" might be true, only I live only 15 minutes from Downtown Pittsburgh, next to a 700 acre woodland that sits directly above the Monongahela River.

Coyotes have been appearing all through Allegheny County, but not so many as to decrease the numbers of deer, also 45% of their diet is cats.

The preferred habitat of the Whitetail is very similar to what is provided by yards on the edge of woodlands.

Working as a Horticulturalist, I am familiar with their diets all to well.
