Thank you for your email and for posing the question/argument that the states’ wildlife management people use to encourage people to hunt, which brings in revenue from licenses, but their argument is totally incorrect and contradictory.
In actuality, just as deer increase their population when there is more food, they will decrease their population when there is less food due to over population or for other reasons. By killing the deer, they will only increase the population again the following year.
As an example, we live in a 2,000 acre development where there is no hunting and we have watched the deer population for the past 40 years, and as more homes are built, we see fewer deer, and no human has ever “managed” their population.
We hope this helps.
In the Love of the Lord,
