I do not think many Civilized people would agree with you. How many deer are bothering your yards exactly?And Cars Well if people would slow down and pay better attention maybe they would not hit a deer ,Deer so not say Lets run into that car: You first. If you are one of the Poachers here in Fairmont Have you started your Bow Hunting Because on Winnebago Avenue Out past Indus Street Where it clearly states No Trespassing or Hunting ,There has been some illegal things going on ,Did ya get all your buddies together?Leave the wildlife alone Build your property Somewhere else .Legislation we know Coddles Farmers ,After all people legal Sharp shooting in Minnesota Made the Elk extinct. And hunting made the Caribou, Moose, Brown Bear, Grizzly Bear, Wolverine ,Bison, Wild Turkey All Extinct In The Great State Of Minnesota ONLY. Yes these are true Facts Google it.So no we can say No Bow Hunting ...
