So I guess your going to pay for the damage these nuisance deer do to our cars on the road or forgive slow driving to look out for them on the road.

Have you not seen the damage these deers do to cars, people injured. And try to avoid the deer while driving. Seriously.. you hunters sure are hard on these local yocals...that I kinda feel like are doing the car insurance rate payers a favor. These deer freak me out everyday on the roads. Theres too many of them in these residential areas because they arent being thinned out.
