    Imagine how many deer are killed out of season for people to eat. Coranavirus isn't gonna change things. I bet every co has someone who poaches for the meat. If I was a betting man. Someone in ky has one hanging in there barn already

    I Agree, but there is some who only take the back straps and leave the rest. I have always cleaned my game and used all of the meat that wasn't beyond use.

    I have been saying this for years- whitetail was all but extinct in KY because of over hunting in the settling of America, and they had plenty of habitat. Now 4-6 weeks and they would be gone.

    I've already got caught light on my 22. I'm not gonna target deer, and I'm not in Kentucky. I'm stuck in Texas. Hunting is legal at night and pigs are everywhere. Without throwing out a big sob story or woe is me, I'm just gonna say I'm VA 100% unemployable Disabled Veteran. Ed Longshanks knows a little bit about me... Anyway, I haven't hunted for 2 years because of eye surgeries due to an accident with a horse. I'm recovering now from my 4th eye surgery, and due to the severity, I MUST lay here, 30 days, 95% of the time the one day I WAS able to get to the store with a friend because I can't even lift a gallon of liquid. I went for water, potatoes, onions, beans, rice, etc. I had 12.00 to my name. I came out (VERY THANKFULLY) With 5# potatoes, and a pint of chicken broth! People like me truly are backed into a corner. I'm gonna to go on Corps of Engineers land, or ask permission... I'm NOT an outlaw....the way I see it though, as a last resort, I didn't spend 29 months of my life fucking and dodging bullets to let the rich exterminate the poor... I'm a SURVIVOR....

    Honestly, I wish that IF it got that bad that the people who don’t hunt or have any clue about the outdoors would go and kill their own food. Unfortunately I believe they would set around waiting for the government to bring them food or money till the bitter end. All of us should take time everyday during this “crisis” to remember who taught us how to hunt, fish, survive. We are all very blessed to have had someone teach us and instill those things within us. I like everyone else take it for granted but I have been reflecting on it a lot lately. If your dad, granddad, grandmother, uncle, Or whomever mentored you is still alive really thank them. If their gone like my mentors just reflect on it and realize how important what they have done for you is especially in this world going forward.

    People talk about this with every emergency that comes up. If I need to I'll shoot some deer. The same people hunt two days a year and let 500 doe's walk without shooting a single one. I don't put too much stock in it. Besides, it would be much easier to shoot a cow than a deer and there's a little more meat to so if going rouge is their survival thought, they probably need to do a little more thinking.

    Who cares about the deer, wait until we start eating each other. And those homemade meat sauces and new flavors start coming out from the make shift village’s people has created. Yum

    #1 its not going to come to that, my M.S. is Environmental Microbiology, I get CDC updates daily and many of my former peers are now epidemiologists, virologists, pharmacologists, etc etc we have been sharing promising research back and forth for weeks! The hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin combination is the real deal, it is working, they just need more in vivo trials before its "approved" for this use.

    #2 Just because someone doesn't hunt, doesn't mean they don't know how!

    Its been 25 years since I personally went hunting but until I got married and had kids myself. I hunted all the time with my Dad and Brothers my family had 1,600 acres in central Indiana when I was growing up. So even though I am a girl, and most people that know me would probably put me in the "don't hunt" category, if I had to, I could out hunt, out survive for that matter, most men I know. When you grow up on a working piece of land you learn things out of necessity, companion planting, canning, how to salt, smoke and dry meat, how to make and use a poultice if you roll an ankle on the back 50 and its swelling like crazy etc.

    So I would not underestimate the rest of the population, particularly in this part of the country. Even my 11 yr old daughter has her hunting license and orange card and goes hunting, she is my only child that prefers to bow hunt, but shes very good got her 2nd turkey last fall when she was still just 10! Not to mention there are approx 1M Whitetail in KY and the most hunters have ever taken in a season is like 150-160K people that "REALLY" don't know "HOW" to hunt will only be going after "residential deer" because its all they are ever going to see!
