Human Fatality in DVA is Murder One
"Over 1.5 million deer/vehicle crashes occur per year in the U.S., causing over $1.1 billion in vehicle damage, more than 29,000 human injuries and 150 deaths." (See red below)
Statistics may be boring, but they are consistent. It dictates that given 30 million deer roaming across the land, and given 3-trillion vehicle-miles per year on American highways, and, not least of all, given a hunting reason entertaining 1.5 million hunters in Pennsylvania alone, and 15 million across the land, which causes deer to blindly dash out of forests into the path of speeding vehicles in evasion of the lethal human intruders the hunters, there WILL be about 1.5 million deer-vehicle collisions (DVCs) or deer-vehicle accidents (DVAs), which WILL cost about 1.5 million deer lives and about 150 human lives, plus about 30,000 human injuries.
According to hunting sources, there were originally about 30 million white-tailed deer in America. History went through a period of unregulated "market hunting", which decimated the deer population to some 300,000 nation-wide, and zero in certain states including Indiana. Since then, the deer population had rebounded back to its original number of about 30 million, but in a much reduced area, due to human occupation of their previous range, including vast tracks of farm land that used to the deer habitat. This creates an over-....population density situation, which causes ecological damage as well as human deaths.
This begs the question as to how this could be possible and how it could have happened. The answer is that the deer population is being inadvertantly as well as intentionally cultivated to overpopulation densities by human manipulation of the environment. Inadvertantly, due to clearcut logging, which opens up broad expanses of sunlit pastures rich in deer food, and intentionally, due to the deliberate super-feeding of deer by means of food plots, basically clearcut areas deliberately seeded with deer food crops.
And this begs the question as to why. The answer is this: There are 300 million Americans, of which only about 6% hunt, which, though a small minority, still amount to 15 million hunters, most of whom hunt deer, each targeting at least one, requiring 15 million deer to give them the baseline satisfaction. The departments of Natural Resources and of Wildlife in some states also impose the rule that to get a buck, a hunter must first kill one or more does. Plus the temptation that the more licenses and permits the state sells, the greater the revenue. All in all, Pennsylvania alone requires some1.5 million deer per year to satisfy its 1.5 million hunters, and America requires 10-....million-plus deer to satisfy the 10-....million-plus deer hunters. Thus, the food plots across the American semi-wild landscape.
And thus the high deer-vehicle collision rates, and deer deaths, and human deaths.
I repeat. Statistics dictates that given the deer overpopulation,.... and the vehicle-mile volume, and the deer hunting season, there WILL be so many human deaths.
And I repeat - human deaths.
The policy makers should understand this, or they are incompetent. If they are not incompetent, the only logical conclusion is that the accidents and collisions are deliberately caused, collateral damage, as it were. It follows that the human casualties and fatalities are themselves deliberately caused. This is legal in war, but not in peace. Is Pennsylvania at war? If not, then a serious crime has been commited. It is called premeditated murder, Murder One.
Maybe even a crime of terrorism, because we never know when and where a DVA will occur, only that it will happen, and innocent people will be hurt or killed. And they have been hit, and killed.
I suggest getting all the families of the accident victims together and launching a class lawsuit for wrongful death.
I hope that my logic has held up. As to doing it. Well, will the pro bono lawyers line up please?

Deer Vehicle Accidents has more then DOUBLED in many heavily hunted states.
It's easy to see how bowshot deer can cause deer vehicle accidents.
6 Reasons why hunting causes high Deer Vehicle Accidents year after year after year
Why is it that Ohio deer herd is rising and DVA's is as well if hunting is about "reduction"?
"Ohio's deer herd in 2008 was estimated at 700,000, up from the 675,000 in 2006."
The Erie Insurane Group, PA's second largest auto insurer, studied the effect that hunting has on car/deer collisions. They discovered that not only did accidents increase during hunting season but they increased by five times on the opening day of doe and buck season.

Deer Birth Control Works so why are the DNR, DEC, DOC and all the wildlife serial killing industry rejects it??
Perhaps because of this...
"The number of new deer added to the pre-hunt population is a function of the number of fawns born and their survival until until the fall. The number of fawns born is primarily determined by the number of does, but the survival of fawns, however, is mostly dependent upon the physical condition of does, although predation is certainly a factor is some situations. A large number of does that are nutritionally stressed will not raise as many fawns to be added to the fall population as a lesser number of healthy does." Deer Hunting and Management TX
"Thus, late fall up to early winter is very important for deer herd managers to impact and influence fawn production, so make sure the plant communities on your property is properly managed deer habitat. " Deer Hunting and Management TX
"Some people disagree with shooting antlerless deer; they reason that protecting them -- thus maintaining a maximum breeding base -- will assure large numbers of antlered bucks because terrific numbers of deer will be born each year and button bucks wouldn't be harvested. "PA. Game Commission
"Historically in all states, including West Virginia, hunting regulation have been restrictive during the period of deer restoration with mainly short buck-only season to protect does and encourage deer population growth." Fundamentals of Deer Management W. VA.
" Fawn crop is often density dependent. Generally, as doe numbers increase, fawn production per doe decreases. Fewer does can and often do raise more fawns to weaning age than more abundant does." QDM
"Managing for proper nutrition in white-tailed deer is important for good body condition, good fawn production and recruitment, and maximum antler growth. Good nutrition can be accomplished by doing three things that involve proper habitat management, supplemental feeding, and the planting of food plots." Deer Managemetn TX
What is the definition of "recruit"?
1. to raise or strengthen (an army, navy, deer herd) by enlisting personnel (in this case, fawns)
3. to enlist (new members), as for a party or organization (or deer to kill for sports)
2. to increase or maintain by supplying anew; replenish (which of course is deer, preferably bucks)
more statements about "adding" deer.
P.129 "With supplemental feeding, it becomes very easy to maitain artificialy high deer densities and still obtain adequate results in terms of antler and body growth." Producing Quality Whitetails Revised Edition
Al Brothers and Murphy E. Ray, Jr. Edited by Charly McTee
" Thus, does are healthier, reproductive
success is higher and more does are able to carry two fawns. Ironically, this can result in a greater deer harvest each year." Quality Deer Management
"With high quality habitat and increased nutrition, the percentage of doe fawns that breed their first fall increases (sometimes up to 25 percent).. Also, a higher percentage of yearling does produce two fawns instead of one." Quality Deer Management
Immunocontraception works. "60% reduction in deer herd from deer birth control" - its a fact yet hunters still rejects it!
Jay Kirkpatrick says Deer Birth Control WORK - IT WORKS WELL!
