    Surely persistance hunting would be useless outside of a desert?

    How about sneaking behind it (or allready being hidden behind it) a chasing it into a prepositioned net/hole?

    take the appropriate hunter safety course, buy the appropriate weapon that would let you legally hunt them during the appropriate season, practice your ass off, and then take the shot. poaching deer is most definitely not legal in any state of this fine union. you need to find out if you can legally shoot within the proximity to your house, neighbors' houses, and what the clearances are. you need to find out if your town has firearms discharge laws (yes, bows are considered firearms), you need to find out if your state has primitive weapons laws that would allow you to use a spear. sorry to rain on your venison-induced parade...

    KG, sharpened broom handles? An atlatl? I hunt deer and nothing makes me sicker than the thought of a deer suffering. If you can't kill it quickly and efficiently, then don't try. Please.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Get ya a big box, a stick, and some string. Prop the box up with the stick and tie the sting to the stick. Put some corn, apples, carrots under the box. When the deer walks under the box to get the bait pull out the stick with string from your hidding spot and trap the deer inside.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    I think this plan of hatched by Scott F might actually work. Given you had a big enough box, that was heavy and sturdy enough. Then you could begin to domesticate deer... AND MILK THEM! You could be the first guy to sell deer cream, and deer cheese, and deer yogurt. Think of the possibilities!

    P.S. Imagine opening the box to kill the deer, that would be an adrenaline rush. I don't think I could make myself do it.

    The boy in "My Side of the Mountain' killed deer using a deadfall. The book has diagrams. It is fiction, but based on real experience. However, it might not kill the deer outright. Also, not sure about the dog/cat/kid situation in your yard. Might be dangerous.

    Add another vote for learning how to kill to quickly. No need for the animal to suffer excessively, and if you are cold-hearted, well, excess adrenelin(Why is this word so hard to spell? Forget it- it stands, I'm sure you know what I mean.) can make the meat taste off.
