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