Anti Deer hunters use State funds to Steralize Population

Deer Injection Deer Injection

We at Shotem and Caughtem love perusing the internet for interesting hunting and fishing topics.  However, we recently stumbled across a hunting story that we thought was so outrageous considering our economic climate we felt it was worth sharing and getting feedback.

Sterilizing Doe Deer to control Population

No you read that right and if you would like to read more about it here is the link to the story we found about deer sterilization.  Trying not to talk politics we will just look at the financials.  You have hunters who go year after year sometimes with unfilled tags who would gladly put there name in a lottery or even pay a little extra to get some extra time in the field and get the meat they need.  A win win.  Last time I checked there are few states since the recent recession that are operating in the black.  So a good way to maybe bring in some money left on the table would not be spending a half a million dollars to try and curb population through medicine and instead through putting food on the table and money in the states wallet. 

State budgets and Alternative Hunting Ideas

It amazes us sometimes how the anti hunting population can offer a voice that makes absolutely no financial or scientific results and spend that kind of money.  Hopefully some in the state will wise up and maybe increase the number of tags or like in our state offer a bonus doe season early in the year to help draw done population numbers.  More tags, more money for the state and less does.  MAKES SENSE TO US FOR SURE......
