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.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
