With less than a month to go before our trip to RSA, I thought i would head out to a local farm here in Ontario, Canada and get some hunting practice in. A local farmer had applied for and received tags to cull deer from his property due to crop damage. We happily obliged and set up for a morning hunt and quickly culled the first two offenders in the field (a pair of bucks). The tags were for either sex. As it was really hot we decided to use a local butcher to get them cooled down and were shocked to see that the reaction was that they didn't want to deal with us and were practically comparing us to poachers even after we showed our government licenses and tags. Oh well, we did the butchering ourselves and sat down to some fine tenderloins that evening. Owning some land myself i fully understand the need to control the herd to preserve crops, but after talking to some hunters (i suspect jealous ones) they suggested upping the quotas for the hunting seasons. I tried to defend our position by stating this was a localized problem and would be difficult to regulate thru hunting tags in the regular season. Has anyone else ran into this attitude when cull/cropping hunting?
