Ahhhh, ethics arguments.

It always comes down to "my ethics can beat up your ethics...". Just like the holier than thou types that try to tell people that keeping certain legal fish is "unethical".

I'll probably burn in sportsman's h&ll according to the Hunters Bible thumpers. I've shot deer (won't call it "hunting") from the back of a pickup truck, at night, with spotlights, and high powered rifles .... all with the encouragement of the local CO. In some places around this state deer are as common as cockroaches and just as welcome. I know farmers that carry AK-47s in their combines just to thin the herds that decimate their crops, and its legal. They have depredation permits from the DNR to kill up to 25 or more deer by any means necessary or desired. The DNR wants them killed and they pretty much don't care how it accomplished.

Ethical? I'm sure it isn't according to some people. But if they feel that way, they shouldn't participate. One man's special hunting quarry is another man's long-legged rodent.

Its about herd reduction. Its also a freezer full of meat for free and meat for the local food pantry.

I usually hunt the more traditional and commonly-accepted-as-legal way.

However, the occasional night shoot with the local farmer to fill the freezer has its rewards.

Your right. It comes down to herd mgt and they are mis-managing the herds around here.
The Wi and Mn DNR adhere to the scorched earth policy.

kill the woofs and watch deer and moose populations rebound. No different than out west with the woof debacle and all the elk being eradicated. Idaho it is 35 bucks each for a nr tag I am going to help the elk out there this winter

Couldn't agree with that statement more. I use them all and always roll my eyes when one of the old boys up here hunting with a 30.06 knocks crossbows like they shouldn't be allowed, give me a break.
