American Deer and Wildlife Alliance Supports Rare Antelope
just think of the thousands of ex-valuable animals that will no longer be of use to those, on whose land these run. this same thing happened a number of years back when they did this to the barasingha deer. many owners, especially in the south, had no option but to remove the herds or thin them drastically, or go under. SSS! what idiocy ,)
it seems like this topic goes through several phases. it comes full circle about every 20 years.
they do it with one species in one place, 20 years later, another place, another animal.
only a few really creatinve individuals have found ways to stop this when they tried it in south africa (pretty sure it was south africa)
it went on briefly over there, until disease started to spread to multiple species and areas were quaranteened (however, wild animals know no political bouindaries) it affected both wild and domestic animals.
maybe we shouldn't beat our heads against the wall, we should find something sharp instead.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
