Saskatchewan's CWD Control Program
Well this cwd program is wonderfull, even the heard reduction program is supper. Shoot 2 does earn a buck tag, 3 points or smaller, shoot 2 more does get another buck tag for any size. HMMMMM so why are there road kill does missing there heads, just so people can get a cheaper tag to take a trophy. yep that is wonder full, anyone else see something similar to that. last year I myself come across 5 road kill does missing heads. Why would i check what they were, if they are road kill, You can tell a buck from a doe when you are driving by, by the size of the body. This year since nov 1 i have come across 2 does and a buck (road kill) that have had their heads missing, And no it wasnt eat of by coyotes.
The CWD Program is a great thing, unfortunately the land owner in the affected zones do not like to have us hunters shoot their deer. Prior to this years black powder season I went out to scout the country and speak to land owners. I stopped at no less than 10 farms to obtain permission and was denied at each and every one. As a landowner myself I understand their reasons but I don't think that they understand the ramifications of not reducing the size of the herd. Needless to say my partners and I did not hunt there. I understand that the Environment officers are going to do a large scale helicopter hunt to reduce the herd. Not the best way to do it but unfortunately the only way.
Like most hunters we all are looking for something to keep the deer on our hunting ground and to bring more deer into our hunting ground. Most of the time we just don’t have the room or funding for this to even happen. We lease a lot of smaller properties here in Kansas and we know that the farmers are needing every little bit of ground they can get to make a living. So if they give up any ground at all it’s not much. As I was talking to one farmer he told me he could give up about a half acre...
