MANAGING THE DEER HERD?

In REALLY managing the deer herd on and around my small piece of property, I once again managed to not only not kill THIS deer, but ANY deer. Oh well, we'll always have next year?

Well, I didn’t manage to kill a deer on my place AGAIN this year. There were good deer around, although mostly at night, and I let three does walk – after promising my wife I’d try for a “meat” deer. Oh, well. My brother, the successful deer hunter, gave us venison – and maybe this critter will be bigger, and more cooperative next season?
