    Whatever "IT" is apparently "IT" can be survived with the contents of a backpack so those of us with a house and a pantry may never realize "IT" has happened!
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    For Pete's sake, don't forget the luminous paint! Gotta have that luminosity on your pantry other wise it's no good!

    No luminous paint, but I do have a roll of luminous Duct Tape.

    You can run around sticking that to things and not worry about giving it time to dry!

    Oh I had a roll of glow in the dark tape once. Is that the same thing? That stuff was super fun.

    Learned some neat things from this thread so I'll put in some of what I learned from an old poacher that's long since passed away.

    He used to use angle iron to make cheap line locks and aircraft cable to make deer snares.

    Basically you'd funnel them into the snare or find an area of brush that is frequently traveled that you can get a snare hung from the sides or above and hang it to the nest hight that you think and then run it back to a sturdy tree.

    Deer will panic and choke itself out.

    As for stabbing them thats a good way to get hurt if the deer is still mobile.

    Cheapest and easiest spear you can make is with a piece of pipe cut at a 45* angle (give or take) and sharpened with an angle grinder then drill holes down the shaft and attack it to a wooden shaft with some self tapping screws.

    Spear head can be as long or as short as your like but a foot of material would probably be a good length.
