Deer hunting by catching a wild feral (pest) deer with just my hands - no guns, traps, tools or weapons - the true test of man vs nature which requires patience and persistence. These feral deer can carry the same diseases that can infect domestic stock, they can also damage native vegetation and forestry plantations through their eating and cause irreparable damage on the Australian environment.
This video was made to raise awareness of the nature of this animal and it's destruction on the environment, it was released safely and unharmed. Capturing a deer barehanded is very dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone who does not have experience handling wild animals.
Shooting deer either for recreational deer hunting with dogs or by paid, trained marksmen is the main form of pest control, although it's been reported their numbers are on the rise and are spreading into rural areas damaging those eco-systems.
