    Plus, venison tastes better than beef.

    and it's leaner and better for you.

    Still, if the folks there decide they don't like hunting, they're welcome to some of our California mountain lions. Import a few, and they'll make more baby mountain lions that will grow up to kill deer and make even more mountain lions. They repopulate like, well, like cats.

    We don't have a lot of deer here any more. Mountain lions are one big reason why.

    I really never could get to where I liked venison. Something in the flavor was just too strong for me. I could eat it, it was not terrible, but I would take beef, pork, chicken, fish over it any day and twice on Sunday. However, in place of ground beef in sauces and such worked great. Venison goulash was delicious, with enough other flavors that whatever it was I did not like about venison was overpowered.

    It was an arrow not a bullet.

    It would have been even sadder if it starved, or if it got hit by a car(or semi, but then no one would have even known it was an albino, not much left when a semi at 70 MPH hits a deer except a red patch on the road). At least some one got something out of this.

    There was a point in time where an albino of any species was protected.(at least in Minnesota... maybe it still is?) I always thought it was a stupid law since hunting is used as a tool to manage the species and albino is a genetic trait that does not serve a wild animal well.

    The kid bagged a trophy. Let him enjoy the moment.

That is how it works.

    Where this happened is about an hour and a half from where I grew up. It is pretty rural and hunting is such a big part of the culture than opening day of gun dear season is a paid day off for many businesses, and going hunting is an excused absence from school. Whitetail deer are beautiful animals, especially at a distance, and this one was too, but hunting them is necessary and provides multiple benefits, including the trophy. While they will probably process it(why waste meat), even if they do not, it is fine.
    I don't agree with killing for the sake of killing, population control or not. Utilize the animal for something. I've hunted deer in Michigan and it makes me sick when I find deer that have been shot and left to rot, because the antlers weren't big, or a small herd of does are left to rot. If you're not varmint hunting then if you kill it, you eat it.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.
