Really? When you're out hunting in the woods and fields, you're in Bambi's environment. High powered rifle or not, he's got the advantage, not you. And, even though its been said a million times already, our hunting license fees and taxes on rifles, shotguns, and ammo are what provide the money used by state conservationists to make sure there are plenty of deer around. That effort is so successful that many states (like Illinois and Pennsylvania) are overrun with deer. Besides that, venison is some damn fine eating. Try getting a clue before you run your mouth.
