A July 18 article draws attention to the problem of white-tail deer overrunning Rock Creek Park and Chevy Chase (“Chevy Chase, Crestwood residents: Oh, deer!” Metro). It also noted that park ranger Laura Illige is allowed to carry a gun to thin the herd.

This presents a great opportunity to reduce the hunger of Washington's homeless and offer a greater diversity of cuisine for everyone else. Experienced hunters could assist Ranger Illige in preparing a large pot of venison stew or “Bul Go Gi,” Korean fire venison each Saturday in the park. A nominal fee could be charged to cover the cost of bullets and spices. Taking home stew would be encouraged.
