Why don't you conduct one of your counter "research projects" and tell us all about it.What method did you use to rule out any one of the several dozen possibilities for these perceived deformities and determine that is was solely because of herbicide ingestion?
First, they are more than just perceived deformities, they exist in the world as real tangible expressions of disrupted biogenesis. The genes of these deer are not coding correctly, and something is causing that via epigenetics.
Secondly, please explain the "several dozen" other possibilities, the biochemistry, and the genetics behind these other "possibilities". You have me so intrigued now as to what these possibilities are. Start with the simplest and most obvious "Spike On One Side" research, and expand it out from there. Maybe call a few "biologists" and see what they have to mumble about it.
As usual, casting a little doubt is the best you can do, because you don't know anything about any of this, and side with the anti hunters on this faster than anyone else on this forum.
