I think one of the points of the article is how to make use of smaller  
game like coons, possums, squirrels, turkeys, etc,  animals that are  
not regulated by some conservation authority.  Around here it's  
standard practice to get the deer tagged & take it home.  & of course  
there's always the redneck types that go "hunting" with an old truck.
