Have classes on hunting, preparation of meat, uses for feathers, skins, bones, antlers(including art). Then have a Deer Sausage Festival or something so you can sell it all at one convenient time and place. Allow the set up of a few local(or even portable) abattoirs. Drop the out of state fees on hunting licenses, or just make a special(cheap or free) license for only hunting the "problem" animals.

In these tough economic times, nature has handed them a solution. Managed properly, they could use this "problem" to their advantage. An overabundance of food and people are complaining...that makes no sense.
