  1. It short circuits my brain. There’s no way I’d aim a rifle at a swingset and there’s no way I wouldn’t try to get Husband to score more venison.

    So confusing!

  2. I would be violating at least one law in taking that shot given that there is a road behind the bushes. Of course that would also involve me owning a gun in the first place.

    On the other hand my wife might want to but because it had been eating her vegetable garden.

    Over Halloween we had to worry about a different type of predator as we had a momma bear and two cubs in the neighborhood.

  3. It looks as if you are in a residential neighborhood, of sorts, which following the law, depending on your state, would be frowned upon. Now, if I was out at my property, and that road behind the deer was dirt, and I wanted to shoot a very young doe, I might. But knowing me, I would let her walk and enjoy the slip and slide. I think it would be more fun to watch her try that thing for 5 minutes than the time it would take to skin and quarter her up. And Bon, I can always bring home more venison (there’s not enough on her to make it worth it).

  4. I’m in British Colombia, Canada and gun laws are much tougher up here, plus I’m inside city limits. That alone makes it illegal. There are also rules about roads but after searching I can’t find specifics. It wouldn’t be safe and thats the bottom line. The road frequently has pedestrians on it.

    We do have a Parish Priest that hunts in his backyard inside city limits but he uses a bow and arrow.

  5. I agree, absolutely not safe in that environment, I wouldn’t even take that shot with a bow and arrow. I know there are rules and regulations regarding that as well, at least down here. Well, first of all, I am not going to see any deer in my neighborhood, and secondly if I did, I would call animal control for fear that someone would hit the deer with their car. My other property is only 100 acres and is out in the country off a dirt road. There are farm trucks that drive by and some logging trucks, but no pedestrians that I am aware of.
