Too Many Deer? Hunters are doing their part to thin deer herds in Ohio but, despite record harvests during hunting season, the state's deer population is at an all-time high. That's not good for the deer, who compete for food, or for humans: There are 20,000 deer-car accidents each year in Ohio. Some communities cull herds by shooting them. Should more do that? Would you be in favor? And what about other solutions? Join us Wednesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
