We don’t hunt deer. We’re not opposed to it, and perhaps someday will — after all, it’s basically free-ranged meat we didn’t have to feed first. But as any Wisconsinite will attest, lots of people do hunt deer.
We’re far enough from towns and suburbs that one hears gunshots now and then, and about 100x more frequently during gun deer season (which just started). Property lines aren’t clearly marked in all places, and we don’t know who might have been given permission to hunt on neighboring land, so just to play it safe we’ve all got our blaze orange hats for when we’re in the woods this time of year.
