133. A friend's farm had so many deer
One was killed with a tractor moving hay (one kind of like that picture in OP).

After a li'l debate he had to get a permit to kill several. I think it was 20 within a month.

They do cause a lot of destruction when unchecked and umm.. hec, eat the cow's food.

It is kinda cool for grandson to be able to go on a motorcycle ride and see 75-100 deer though.
