It's either that or they eat all your flowers

I've written before about the white-tailed deer that are prevalent in Westchester County.. Perhaps part of the reason they are so common may be that in Westchester, hunting deer with firearms is prohibited. This leaves two ways of killing them:

Smear mud on your face, put bits of bracken behind your ears and sit motionless in the woods for six hours before leaping out with your knife when one wanders near.

Cut a stout piece of yew, grab a length of twine and fashion yourself a longbow like one of Sherwood Forest's finest.

Bow hunting appears to be the preferred option. I've even seen adverts from people offering to lurk in your garden yard and dispatch any ruminants that wander past. Gratis!
