From time to time, I hear people tell stories about how Amish are the murders of the woods. They talk about how they chase after ever deer in the woods even if it is the smallest of the herd. I really did not believe anything that people were feeding me, until now. A local Amish man recently asked to hunt on our property. We said no because we had already harvested two deer off of the 80 acres this year. My dad also told me why he said no. He said that the year before, he was shearing the guys sheep and the Amish man was heading out to go hunting. My dad then asked him how many deer he had shot so far that year. The Amish man says, 9!!!! 9 and still going for more? Seriously? Sure, you have to feed your family of God only knows how many, but really? No one on this website can tell me that there is no way in hel! that harvesting 9+ deer for one hunter is good for the deep population. The Amish see hunting as a great way to have meat. Buy some tags for about 5 to 10 dollars per deer and you have a few months of meals. Can up the meat and your good to go. I think that the way that Amish are unaware of wildlife preservation is ridicules. What do you all think.
