I am still baffled by the knowledge that there are deer farms–places that deliberately raise deer for hunters to go and shoot–and that people want them in Tennessee. Now, I am not a hunter. But I do have a garden. So, I have to say, I am confused about why we would need places in Tennessee where deer are raised deliberately. Are there not already a shit-ton of deer in this state? Are they not already kind of a public nuisance? Have we not pretty much removed all apex predators from the area, thus rendering us deer’s only real threat?
People who aren’t even hunters kill deer in our state all the time, on accident, with their vehicles.
Help me out here, hunters. Why in the world would you need to canned hunt something so damn ubiquitous? Who would pay to hunt something they could shoot for free in their own vegetable garden?
Is it about the size and age of the animals? What? I’m not trying to be snarky. I literally cannot understand this enough to know if I should be in favor or oppose it.
