A whitetail buck stands on a hilltop in Southside Virginia, watching warily for the hunters he knows are out looking for him. Deer overpopulation is a problem in Virginia and many states and the deer hunting season now runs into January. Even with the longer season, state officials say many of the animals will starve to death during the winter season and many others will die when struck by cars when they venture towards highways in search for food.
