Heard on the news yesterday that the Minnesota Deer hunt will be very limited. IT WAS A HARD WINTER. Give me a break. This is the first year I have seen two sets of twin fawns in our area. Every night we see deer.
Belly deep in the neighbors pea field.
She can graze and walk along skimming the peas.
Even when Chance barked and I hollered “Get out of the peas” She stood her ground…she was bound and determined to get a belly full.
Smart aleck deer anyway.
Seems like we have enough deer in this area. Yet the
idiots powers that be at the Minnesota DNR are limiting the antlerless (doe or fawn) permits in much of the State and in 95% of Minnesota only one deer can be harvested per hunter. So that means more deer ticks which means more Lyme's and anaplasmosis which brings people into the clinic and hospitals, more road kills which is good news for the Bald Eagles and the auto body shop repair people.
I saw a bumper sticker today it said “Hunt with your kids so you don’t have to hunt for them” It made sense to me.
