This is the first question to ask. If you don't know what problem you are trying to solve, then your actions won't lead to an effective solution.
If the "problem" is DVAs, the solution is a non-lethal DVA detterent, its cheaper, it targets all deer, only when cars are on the road. Lethal methods, target some deer, the remaining deer are free to cross the road, resulting in a DVA, so its a game of odds and less effective. Lethal options are expensive and because of rebound effect, must be continued indefinitely. A DVA deterrent is installed once and continues to work year after year with modest maintenance.
If the "problem" is damage to gardens, it is far cheaper and more effective to use proven deer proofing gardening methods. Once again, lethal methods are playing the odds.
