You mean as in commercial salmon-pen raised, commercial oysters-seeded and deer-pen raised. My dictionary works just fine. You do not harvest deer for population control, you kill them.

I tawt we aww node dat.

I'm just quoting the dictionary. No reason to go spelling like a first grader.

I don't have a problem using the term harvesting as much as the terms made famous by some of the celebrity hunters we have on the outdoor channel. Terms like dirt nap, wacked and stacked, dirt rolled, let the T/C bark. I think these terms are far worse for our sport than the term harvest. I mean, if you go to the TWRA's own web site to check the so called "kill" numbers they refer to the site as harvest reports not kill reports...

Exactly hill country. "Harvest" is the biologically correct term when talking about the number of deer killed in a given area. However, using the term "kill" is the correct term when talking about an individual deer killed by a hunter (or an animal you yourself killed). When hunting, I don't "harvest" deer, I "kill" them. However, the deer I killed is part of the overall annual "harvest" of deer in TN.

I couldn't agree more. I absolutely despise these terms.
