I've enjoyed your columns very much, but am frankly disgusted by your purposeful killing of an obvious mother deer. Deers don't just nurse their fawns, they teach them to survive. Where to hide, when to run, what is dangerous, what to eat, etc. As most mammals grow, they naturally leave their mothers or the mother no longer is as affectionate, readied by nature for the next conception.This was cruel. Were you starving and needed the meat? I suppose it proved your manhood to yourself. You probably sentenced the fawn to death, also, by your actions.
