Yes, and wear a Brown helmet/jersey, with white shorts, too.

The white shorts would be a dead giveaway. Need to get a white seat and put it on your bike backwards. To hell with comfot, this is for science.

So I'm going to show my ignorance and say that I had to google this. This doesn't sound good to Bambi and all her friends!

Actually, it's real good for Bambi & her friends. Culling the herd helps the overall health of the remaining population. It also helps cut down on tics. If left unchecked, without any natural predators the herd would eventually get culled naturally, through disease and starvation.

Besides, if we weren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat? 8)

In addition to disease and starvation for population control, the increased herd size could very likely INCREASE the population size of the high order predators we already know are there.

Ogar already mentioned ticks.

Thank you for the explanation Ogar. I've spotted deer out there everytime I ride and wondered if it was some sort of protected ground. Last time (Tuesday eve) on my way home there must have been 5 or 6 of them critters frolicing on Argo Road just down the hill from the parking lot.

On a side note someone told me millions of plants get killed for food too! :P

Jackson County has "Deer Management" hunts at its larger parks. They make their rounds at Monkey Mountain, Jacomo/BSL and probably several other parks. I don't have a problem with the culling of the herd but don't really care for folks totting guns around where I ride my bike. Sort of like how the locals don't like tourists.

This hunt will be archery only. To many bad possible scenarios to allow firearms in county parks.
