Up until a year ago we lived in Chesterfiled/Wildwood MO, its deer situation and environment is similar to the TV show.
The deer are positively taking over...30 to 40 of them grazing in the fields, they eat your plants down to the dirt, and despite having learned to look both ways before crossing the road we still hit plenty, but at slow speed so they die just as slowly.
I've had them come in my yard huffing at me and stomping a hoof....my dog ran that one off.
And now its rumored there are a few mountain lions skulking around areas positively loaded with kids.
I think the show is lol funny and they're helping to reduce a problem.
They seem to be good-humored decent people who are skilled and try to follow the rules.
I say they should be allowed to use crossbows if its more effective.
