We have a lot of deer in our area. That was pretty nice, until I planted a garden. Now, after several crop casualties, and the toil and expense of erecting a deer fence, I feel that they owe me something.
I’m becoming more certain that us 99-percenters won’t be able to afford store-bought meat on a regular basis in the near future. Might as well get it the old-fashioned way.
It turns out that it only takes about half a dozen deer to justify a reasonable investment in hunting gear, licenses, classes, etc. Maybe only 3 deer if you dress and process it yourself, though I’m not sure what kind of facilities that requires.
In the meantime, I’ve got my Glock 17 pistol which I could use if things go suddenly austere. 7 months ago
