October 16, 2009 6:12 PM VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3)- Deer and deer hunters are not known for getting along, but one Van Buren County man who is an avid deer hunter himself, is trying to save the life of a baby doe.
 
"She's got some pretty serious injuries, she's got some cuts that need stitched, but she seems like she's got a pretty good will to survive," said Willie Nearn.
 
Nearn found the deer lying in the middle of Red Arrow Highway just east of Lawrence after it had apparently been hit by a car.
 
He's named the deer Sis, and is keeping her in a kennel in his backyard, hoping to find some help to save her life.
 
Anyone who knows of a resource to help Sis, can get in touch with Newschannel 3 at desk@wwmt.com.
Aim for the center of the target... the center of an aspirin is the same size as the center of a basketball. The difference is mental.

It's a touchy feely story, but what will be done with the fawn if it recovers. Nature is not that kind. Also, the DOW may be contacting him soon...It is illegal in most states to keep a wild animal without permits.

I applaud Mr. Nearn for trying to save the life of the deer -- if he knows what he is doing (and he seems to.)

But I have a problem with the very first sentence in the story: "Deer and deer hunters are not known for getting along...." The writer thought he had come up with a clever lead, but it's false. Deer hunters get along with deer everywhere. Deer hunters are by far the biggest advocates for deer (and other wildlife as well.) They are interested in the species more than in the individual, but where it's appropriate to help the individual animal, they're usually first in line.

When the Everyday Hunter isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.
