Whether anyone finds hunting morally repugnant is frankly laughable. So what? There MUST be deer-hunting in Michigan--period. Is deer meat consumed by deer hunters? You bet it is. I get several pounds of venison every year from friends and coworkers who hunt. There are places that process deer meat--take your kill to them and they will turn it into steak, sausage and you name it. And it's good! Bothers you? Tough shit. From a Government of Michigan website:

In the late 1980s, the Department of Natural Resources reaffirmed its goal of 1.3 million deer in the fall herd (which was biologically the same as the 1971 goal of 1 million deer in the spring herd) and continues to work toward that goal. Unfortunately, the large deer herd has begun to have a significant impact on their own habitat and the habitats of other animals. In some areas, they have nearly eliminated certain plants, which may provide food and or shelter for other wildlife.

The build-up of deer in urban and suburban areas has also become a challenge. Other than fencing, nonlethal control methods have usually been unsuccessful or impractical, and lethal controls have eventually been applied. Management of deer in urban and suburban settings will provide many future opportunities for public education and involvement.
