"The Urban Whitetail Season" here in NOVA starts on Sept 15, 08 - Mar 15, 09. ====> i can hardly wait.
I refuse to call it shooting because it gives the ARA's one more piece of ammotexasnative46 said:dagriz,
"as many as you can shoot & NOT WASTE MEAT", is what the local "animal control supervisior" told me last fall.
we have so many deer in NOVA that i've wondered WHY they bother to ever close the deer season. one local man "in town" recently said that he counted 68 deer in his 1/4 acre yard in less than an hour - ALL eating his landscaping up!!!
the latest estimate from the county is that there is about 4 times as many deer in Fairfax County as the county SHOULD have!!!
this year, the latest i heard was: "Shoot anything with or without antlers and at any age. Just remove them from the county."
i refuse to really call this HUNTING. rather it is SHOOTING.
