I have read about self-limiting populations but if it involves animals starving that doesn't seem so good either. People are starving because of our own over-population and we can't seem to solve that problem. Pretending hunting is being compassionate is just ridiculous. (I'm not saying you were saying that, of course.) They just want to shoot things.

More like the traffic is a hazard to the deer!
It's just aswell humans aren't shot because they are over populating an area, isn't it? :thumbsup:

Deers are supposed to have a natural predator. For example, pumas and wolves.

However, humans have hunted most carnivores to extinction (especially in the USA). Without these natural predators, the deer (and other herbivore) populations increased. What we should do is return the forest back to it's natural balance by reintroducting predators (like wolves and pumas) back into the wild. This will keep the deer population in control.

The animals lived on earth for thousands, and thousands of years before humans got here, and they did just find without us "controlling" their population.
