Oh, deer 

It's been a nasty start to hunting season around these parts. Since Monday: 2 hunters fatally shot, 3 more wounded, and 3 expert marksmen shot themselves accidentally.

I don't own a gun, have never hunted, and never will. While I can't join PETA in worrying about whether fish have feelings, I'm also completely incapable of relating to the desire to kill another living thing for fun.

But what I understand even less than the hunting itself is the desire to hunt in a forest full of people who are also hunting. If I ever fire a gun, I can guarantee you it won't be somewhere that I have to wear neon to avoid being mistaken for a large brown animal.
