Deer Out of Hand - Still

If we aren't mistaken, deer season is right around the corner, and according to this report in the Tribune, these four footed terrorists are sending more and more "suicide" missions our way and are increasingly likely to kill their targets:
  • The number of people killed in vehicle accidents involving deer on Illinois highways hit a high last year, even as the number of accidents declined, state transportation officials said Thursday.
  • Eight of the 11 fatalities in 2005, up from 6 the year before, were either drivers or passengers on motorcycles, according to new Illinois Department of Transportation statistics.
  • Cook County led the state with 995 deer versus vehicle accidents last year, resulting in 61 injuries. Lake, Will, Kane and McHenry Counties ranked 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th, respectively, with 516, 509, 501 and 447 accidents resulting in 24, 26, 15, and 14 injuries. DuPage County was far down the list with 231 accidents, nine of which resulted in injuries.
Evidently, deer have decided to target motorcyclists as "soft targets." And it's not really a big surprise that in the area where gun laws are the most restrictive (Cook County), deer "attacks" are the most brazen. We desperately need a deer culling in Cook County - just the other day, we had to resort to launching golf balls at 20 or more deer blocking our path to the 3rd green at a nearby golf course. This is becoming intolerable.

It's not that hard to get on a forest preserve culling team. Just make that $1000 check out to T. Stroger jr. On a serious note, the problem could be taken care of with a permit only bowhunt in the forest preserves.

I herd that the next big money maker is for toll booths on the bike paths beginig next spring.
One booth every three miles, so with thirty miles of lake front bike paths that will be ten booths.
Who will get the contract to build them? Stay tuned.

Off topic I know
BUT I need to vent this

I just read the Friday Tribune account of the triple murder on 8100 S Green

That a human being could do this to other humans, not withstanding that one was his mother who was pleading for her life and another was his grandmother.

This guy needs to be dragged slowly behind a car, bound at the wrists, all the way to Albequerque
New Mexico from the crime scene.


I hope he spends eternity at the Gates of Hell

And G-d Bless the officers who brought him to the attention of the courts Good job guys

Thank you for the indulgence

I was riding my motorcycle on River road through forest preserve and counted over twenty deer poised to make my wife a widow. Pretty scary, guess I need louder pipes.

Keep advocating the extermination of coyotes
That will keep the deer population down

Hmmm. OK, not one of our better streams of logincal progression.

The burgeoning deer and goose populations provide more opportuninty for coyotes to breed successfully as there is plenty of food. Suburbia encroaches on coyote hunting areas providing plenty more tasty morsels in the form of Fifi, Spot and Fluffy. If we eliminate deer and geese, the starving coyotes are going to be grazing on stray dogs and cats until some sort of balance is reached - and in the interim could attack people, small people.

The obvious solution is to re-instill the fear of man that coyotes had learned for the past 200 years or so by rearming the populace. But we're surrounded by so many tree huggers and anti-gun liberals that any attempts to kill deer, goose or coyotes is going to run into problems. Relocation isn't really an option.

Having a top of the heap predator nosing around our backyards where the dogs and kids play doesn't seem like a good idea. We're open to suggestions. But the balance of nature gets out of whack pretty easily and efforts to correct it might not be the correct path - as evidenced by our shortsightedness.

As a retired guy who moved to a southwest suburb, I look out my back window every evening and find a minimum of 5 deer. They are fed by our neighbors and the deer no longer bat one of their long eye lashes at us when we open our garage doors or walk buy. As beautiful as they are, they are too domesticated and we have all seen the damage they are capable of. Just wanted to comment.

Personally, I'd like to see them bring back the drawn and quartered concept to capitol punishment. I'd settle for impaling ala Vlad. I'm easily amused that way.

I know this is off topic but I feel complelled to post this. We lost a good man this week. He was a good Police Officer and now a good Sgt. He was stripped this week because he apparently tried to help out those shit bags from SOS when he was filling in as thier Sgt. It may not have been the smartest thing he's ever done but his heart was in the right place and he tried to do what he thought was the right thing. He didn't know that these guys were doing what they were doing and now because he tried to be a standup guy he's going to pay the price. It's a real shame. As I said, he's a great guy and a good copper/Sgt. He wasn't involved in what they were up to but he did get caught up in it because of them. Bastards!

If your ever in the market for fresh deer kill, leave your number. In 016 we have our share of vehicle vs. deer crashes and we usually end up shooting the creature to put it out of it's misery.
Speaking of misery, don't forget about our two fuck up's on midnights who wrote the officer the other day.

Regarding the coyotedeer/man problem

The wild anilmals were here first WE are bumping heads with them
There are many reasons for this burgeoning population of homo sapiens forging deeper into what was what their home.

We are sucking mother earth dry of her resources
The population boom and other things are going to bite us in our asses or our childrens asses sooner rather than later

Theres no easy answer

I am a down stater and live in the so called "Golden Triangle" (Brown County). The deer population is totaly out of control here. People come from all over the US and even other countries to take part in this "BIG GAME HUNT" here......please.......kill them all. They are a real problem here, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage to our crops and property and 10-50s. The only problem I can see with the big whitetail hunters that come here is that most have not a clue on how to hunt them. They spend lots of money on un-sented soap, doe sent, buck lure, camo.......all that other expensive stuff. All that is needed in the golden triangle to attract deer is, the the sent of a 2006 Chevrolet truck traveling 55 mph two lights on your hat and a horn....I will promise you that you will bag one in no time at all.

Sorry, just a down state cop wanting to be a wise ass.

Wealthy Rahm? Poor Bean? Open Secrets Says So
As listed on OpenSecrets.org

Cong. Rahm Emanuel is worth between $8.5 mill and $32 million, making him the wealthiest member of the Illinois Congressional delegation and #39 on the list of high govt officials and the 535 members of Congress as ranked by their wealth.


Below excerpt from Congresspedia.

Emanuel began his career with the consumer rights organization Illinois Public Action. He went on to serve in a number of capacities in local and national politics, including liberal Democrat Paul Simon's 1984 election to the U.S. Senate, political director for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 1988, and senior advisor and chief fundraiser for Richard M. Daley's victorious campaign for mayor of Chicago in 1989. Emanuel became known for his fundraising abilities in the mayoral campaign of Richard Daley. He would insist on donors giving more than they previously gave, even hanging up the phone on donors to convey his disgust. At the age of 30 he raised an unheard of $7 million for Daley. This helped win him a job as Director of Finance in the 1992 Presidential campaign of then-Governor Bill Clinton.

He went far after being a Ballet dancer and studying dance in school. Ching, ching, ching.

Didn't know they were inforcing this with police. The sign says no city workers can park to swipe. It's because 20 of them would park and then hang out for 30 minutes at the machine waiting to swipe. What watch was it? Perhaps they confused you with a city worker?
