If a deer attacks you on your own front porch, and it’s outside of hunting season, I would assume that it’s still lawful to shoot his ass. I’m sure a couple of handgun bullets to the cranium would take him down, no problem. (mute the audio. The woman screaming is annoying.)

My question here is: Would you then be permitted to add his meat to the freezer? Some venison steaks would be delicious!

“Can I keep him”
Ummmm, why would you tell anyone……..

In Michigan yes…. Hit with a cat or whatever… Call the Sheriff Dept and they write you a tag on the scene and you pack it in the freezer… I believe self-defense you be a good reason…

Hokey Smoke, Bullwinkle. The sound track from that should be prime evidence in the divorce proceedings.

Go back in the house. Let the @&%$ dog fend for itself. Give it a few minutes, the deer will leave, but attacking it provokes the fight-or-flight sequence. We saw how well that worked.

Then, there is Plan 2 – a little over a dozen years ago I walked out into my back yard with 12 ounces of decaf on a Saturday morning and discovered the neighbor’s German Shepherd had dug under the fence and laid claim to my yard as his. I turned to go back into the house and call animal control and got 5 steps before it bit me on the leg.

I carry a gun everywhere but up until that moment I did not think I needed to be armed in my fenced backyard. I was wrong. Now if I open a door – any door – to the outside I am armed.

That said, I’m not convinced shooting the deer on a concrete driveway, right next to my car, in a neighborhood with the houses close together, would be the best choice. I am sure screaming at it, hitting it with a purse (?) or wrestling with the antlers is not the best choice.

There is lots of info on the ‘net about “criminals do not think the way you do so do not make the mistake of assigning to them your value structures and thought processes.” Seems like the same would apply to animals.

Don’t mess with deer – they’re not cute little Bambis , they’re wild animals and all muscle , sharp pointed antlers and hard, sharp hooves . A buck could easily kill an adult human without breaking a sweat .
OTOH , they ARE delicious .
