Illinois Deer Population and EHD

Ran into an old guy while out driving around yesterday.

He lives on a hoarder infested farmette a few miles out of town.

Says he has indisputable evidence that the drop in deer numbers in Illinois is being caused by alien abductions.

He also says that EHD is caused by alien experimentation gone wrong.

I think he’s nuts.

I think Obama is causing all these deer problems.

He is the antichrist you know.

It’s just his way of getting back at all the crackers that didn’t vote for him back in his home state.

    that is one seriously cool shot and exquisite pov. put this in a gallery? I think so. Some people are Crazy Cool. Others are Crazy Weird. Some are just crazy.

      I knew you’d like it.

      A couple of years ago hunters at Silver Springs were dumping their deer on the edges of a couple of parking lots. One deer was gutted and that’s it. Perfectly good meat ruined. After a couple of weeks the coyotes made them all look like this.

      You’d have to be odder than me and you to want to see this framed and hanging on a wall. Even the wife walked by and said… WTF?

    My nephew tells me he finds perfectly good grouse along the logging roads, shot and dumped on the shoulder. Right up there with people who hack at trailside vegetation, apparently for the sole joy of causing suffering.

    Am I wrong to think that if we got serious about identifying these people, then sterilising them and taking away their vote, humanity would rocket forward within one generation?

    That is a great shot, by the way. Definitely has Buddhist impact. And I’ve encountered more than one person here in the outback who talks like your interviewee. I don’t know if the backwoods creates, attracts, or just highlights such people.

    I’ve been saying that for years Robin. It tends to be met with disgust by others, but there are times when it seems plausible to me.

    I some times wonder if solitude does that to people, but then I like to fish and hunt alone and you seem to spend a fair amount of time by yourself. Maybe we’re the odd balls.

    I’ve been out pheasant hunting where guys will just shoot the birds and leave them. That I will never understand.

    NYS should lobby Obama and have him eliminate the deer surplus around here. Republicans have poisoned all the predators like wolves and coyotes, so everything (including myself!) is out of whack.

    I’m pretty sure the aliens limited their deer snatching to the area where I hunt. Everyone else seems to be having a pretty good season. I, on the other hand, have seen more on the Interstate than in the woods. So, maybe they aren’t taking them. Maybe they’re just relocating them.

    I would imagine that once they get a scared deer on the mother ship the aliens regret that decision Jim. Nothing like almost 200 pounds of scared deer banging around.

    Deer are always going to be someplace other than where you are. That’s the way hunting works.
