    My neighborhood has about 50 deer running around. Im in richmond in Royal Lakes. Could i shoot one with a bow or is that illegal? I cant find anything on the web about it.

    people in my neighborhood growing up (PA) used to hire bow hunters to waste some of them every now and then since there were so many it was dangerous. any come onto your property?

    All over my lot.. im on a acre lot that backs to a creek. I just bought the house but it was built in 05 and all the shrubs look like they are newly planted because i think they nibble them down.

    I'd argue, if anyone asked, that they are just large rodents destroying your vegitation. Take 'em out like you would a rat.

    I've counted as many as 100 of these in my front yard. This is alongside my driveway.

    They eat everything if they get hungry enough. The subdivison was an exotic game ranch before it was subdivided in to acreage lots and all the game was left intact. Multiple hundreds of blackbuck antelope and axis deer.

    I think the law says that you can shoot deer if they're destroying your crop/and or property .... one catch ... you have the let them lay,
    meaning you can not harvest the carcass

    That is very cool problem to have. Better than what I have rummaging through my front yard...
