Thoughts on Deer Hunting at a public state park in Bucks County, PA

Deer in Tyler Park

The name of our county is Bucks, in Pennsylvania.

I looked up the information on how the county got it’s name, and was surprised that it didn’t have anything to do with Deer.   The answer was posted here http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_did_bucks_county_gets_its_name

“It was named by William Penn in 1682 after Buckinghamshire, England, the county where he lived and his family originated from. Bucks is the abbreviation for Buckinghamshire, and both names are used interchangeably in England. Penn’s home, Pennsbury Manor, is located within Bucks County.

I have always loved deer.  It was very hard for me living in Wisconsin this time of year, when people had deer that they had killed tied on their cars and trucks.

I do understand and respect people that need to hunt to eat.  My husband has relatives in the northern area of Wisconsin that feed their family in the winter from their hunting.

When I was in high school, I wrote poetry about the deer hunting in the wooded lands near our house.  Deer are just so beautiful and innocent.

I think that the State of Pennsylvania should look at humane alternatives to hunting.  The deer should be protected, not slaughtered in a park!  That reminds me of shooting fish in a barrel!!

This is the newspaper article on the hunt for this year.

    I also wonder how many of those on the deer hunt are “Pro-lifers.” I think they should just be Lifers. What if they wound a deer and leave it to run off and die in agony. I agree that overpopulation of deer (We messed their habitat and natural life cycle..) causes starvation among the ones that do not spill out into the road to be killed by cars. Still, there must be a better way.

    Also, are you men going to give more thought to the fact that, after certain acts, women tend to become pregnant? Are you teaching your sons this?
    Starving children wondering around, getting killed by cars, guns, lovelessness.

    I agree with you on this. We’re now taking over wild animal lands and killing them to control their population. Sounds a lot like the history of our country, doesn’t it?

      It is embarrassing and a disgrace. Thanks for your support
