This deer hunting season in the Midwest has been up close and personal for me. I currently live with a friend who has allowed hunting on the property of 5 wooded acres. I endured the view of a beautiful deer hauled onto the back of a truck and calling it a "harvest". My friend is a wildlife lover, and loves nature - but eats flesh and believes in hunting for the control of the deer population. I do not want to lose a friend, but the practice of hunting for sport on the property where I live is not acceptable to me. What is being done, and what can be done about this killing sport that is taught to children before they reach their teens? This practice appalls me but I am at a loss as to how to proceed in a positive manner to help create change. Any projects, organizations that are actively approaching this issue? I belong to the TOS, PETA, and the Humane Society but as far as I have knowledge, no active projects are taking place.
