Boston Globe Deer Hunt

I didn't want to go along.

What I have learned all these years from my government and its mouthpiece is the only way to solve a problem is to kill it.

"Four days of deer hunting approved in Blue Hills State Reservation" by Jill Terreri Ramos Globe Correspondent  October 14, 2015

A controlled hunt has been talked about for years as a remedy for a deer population which has grown out of control, that has spread Lyme disease and other tick-borne illness, and created other problems. After considering other measures such as contraception, trapping, and sterilization, which were deemed ineffective, state officials held three public hearings on a limited deer hunt.

It's what wars and other nefarious global depopulation plans and efforts are when applied to the human animal by its rulers.

The state has not permitted hunting in the Blue Hills since before it became a reservation in 1893, said Matthew Sisk, deputy commissioner of the state Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Permits for the controlled hunt, which is limited to shotguns, will be awarded in a lottery, and hunting will take place on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, Dec. 7, and Dec. 8. The state will randomly select 98 licensed hunters for each two-day session. The area south of Interstate 93 will be closed to hunters.

The deer population, which has reached at least 85 deer per square mile of forest habitat, is destroying vegetation, throwing off the forest ecosystem, and contributing to fire hazards, state officials said. A healthy level is considered to be 6 to 18 deer per square mile.

“This isn’t something we did lightly,” said state Senator Brian A. Joyce, Democrat of Milton, who sponsored a measure included in an environmental bond bill that called on the state to study ways to control the deer population in the Blue Hills. “We have a bit of an epidemic of Lyme disease and something has to be done.”

Been a lot of “soul searching” over there, and the illness is in dispute

That's why Bambi must be murdered?


Look what other dears are coming along:

"More women drawn to the thrill of the hunt" by Lisa Rathke Associated Press  October 12, 2015

MONTPELIER — More women are taking up the largely male-dominated sport of hunting to stock their freezers with local foods as cultural influences, including movie heroines and marketers, make it more socially acceptable.

Many of the new female participants did not grow up hunting and are joining spouses or boyfriends in the sport, researchers say. Hunting outfitters are tapping into that. Movies such as “The Hunger Games,” “The Hobbit,” and “Brave,” which feature skilled female archers, have driven more girls and women to the activity, researchers say.

According to the most recent data from the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation, the number of female hunters rose from 1.2 million in 2006 to 1.5 million in 2011, a 25 percent increase. From 2001 to 2011, the percentage of hunters who were female rose from 9 percent to 11 percent.

One of them is Tammy Miller, 46, of Fairfax, Vt., a bow hunter who recently got a 931-pound bull moose, setting an archery record in Vermont, after scouting the area for weeks.

She became interested in hunting more than 10 years ago after divorcing and becoming a single parent trying to make ends meet. She then met the man who is now her husband, an avid hunter who taught her and bought her first bow.

“Once I started, the experience of being quiet in nature and being able to provide for my family, I was hooked,” Miller said.

For fellow hunter Cheryl Frank Sullivan, 34, of Underhill, Vt., hunting provides a sense of empowerment to be able to be self-sufficient.

I don't have a problem with killing the animal if you slaughter it yourself and use it; hell, I'm a hypocrite because I still eat meat and that is not what is bothering me here. It's the mixed message of the take-the-guns-away because of all the fictional, staged and scripted psyops and then turning around and promoting the women killers narrative, makes 'em equal and all. I suppose it's the constant agenda and ulterior motives of everything I read in the propaganda press. 

I know this has to do with bow-and-arrow, and all the better I suppose; however, on a completely reactionary and reflex level I have simply HAD IT WITH ALL THE KILLING in my PAPER! 

I DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS, readers, but I do know I am sick of SEEING, READING, or HEARING about how KILLING is the ONLY SOLUTION to EVERY PROBLEM (as framed and offered by my government and media).

Researchers say marketers are helping to attract women to the activity.

“It’s almost like the chicken-or-egg thing. There’s certainly been a slight increase in female hunters. The marketing folks have grabbed onto that, they’ve started using images of females hunting and shooting, so more and more females are doing it,” said Mark Damian Duda, executive director of Virginia-based Responsive Management, which does surveys for federal and state fish and wildlife departments.

That's what my new$paper is all about: marketing, be it readership for advertising (ha-ha), a framing narrative, or an agenda.

Lisa Stinson of Velpen, Ind., got drawn in when she tried hunting about 12 years ago. The 33-year-old likes the peacefulness of being outdoors, away from everyday life. The food is another bonus.

“I like the fact that it is fresh and I know where it came from,” she said. “I know that there’s no added hormones.”

Good point, and no genetically modified anything either.

More families also are taking their daughters, as well as sons, hunting, said Michelle Cain, a wildlife information specialist with the state Division of Fish and Wildlife in Indiana, where the number of hunting licenses sold to women rose from 17,541 in 2006 to 33,922 in 2014, a 93 percent increase.

One explanation for the growth in female hunters is economic, said Mary Zeiss Stange, a professor of women’s studies and religion at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and author of “Woman the Hunter.”

Oh, yeah?

Women have more disposable income than ever before and a history of entering male-dominated areas of activity, ranging from careers to recreational and other pursuits, she said. 


Another, she said, is a cultural shift.


When she and her husband would go away for a weekend of hunting in the 1990s, she’d tell students and colleagues, if asked, that she’d been camping or hiking, she said. Now some of her female students are interested in hunting.

“What we’re seeing is people are coming to hunting for a variety of reasons, but certainly among women and girls, it’s all the reasons that attract men, like adventure, fun, exercise, all that stuff,” she said. “But I do think there is an interesting sense in which on the one hand these women and girls are conscious that they’re crossing certain boundaries that a generation ago they couldn’t.”

Yaaaaaay, the more women kill the more equal to men they are, yaaaaaay!
