Nimble, did you say you work for the dnr ? ? Sure sounds like it !
In other words we should go back to deer hunting the way it was in the 50's & 60's when you were happy if you saw a couple of deer all season.
Can't say I am willing to keep paying for a license with no hope of ever putting meat in the freezer. After all that is one of the reasons for hunting isn't it. If I just want to spend time out in the woods enjoying nature I can do that anytime and I don't need to waste my money on a license.
Either way wolves have little impact on deer numbers and in fact they usually genetically enhance the population by leaving the fastest, strongest, and those with the best defense (big racks).
Right, and when the snow gets deep and the deer are yarded up they go around and check which one is the weakest before they kill it and bypass the others. Have you ever seen what a pack of wolves can do to a herd of deer in the winter. And they only eat what they want and leave the rest of the dead deer to rot or for the scavangers.
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.
