I'd be interested to see where this goes.

http://www.dailyrecord.com/article/...deer-Our-forests-degraded-deer-people-blame-A

In talking about deer overpopulations, the problem is there is plenty of lands that could be hunted, that we are not allowed to, and have become sanctuaries for deer. There are plenty of DEP owned lands that they allowed "land trusts" to "manage", but all they do is prevent hunting. That equals a sanctuary.

Its a 3 parts series.

Looking forward to the next 2 parts. Guess I don't totally understand when they mention Berkshire Valley being so over-browsed. Are there that many deer in there? So many people post they hardly see deer in there anymore.

I like where this is heading...

Great post.[up]

They probably don't mean land that is available to hunting, but land that is restricted.

It's nothing more than a deal with the devil.

They should insted solicit easments from real easement organizatons like DU, WU, PU and other who have real biologists on staff (not like idiots like Tavvs or whatever his name is, the moron from the beartards) Ones that balance wildlife needs and allow hunting when the carrying capacity can sustain it. They also know what types of plants SHOULD be there, not what has overrun that ecosystem because of past delvelopement or other factors such as draining or landscape run off.

Here's the comment ...
To the author of this article, please please please, question why hunters are permitted to feed deer year round, whether it is deer season or not. maybe you can browse through the Fish and Wildlife manual's ads, it's chock full of peanut butter feeders, corn for sale, mineral licks, etc. Also, if you have the time, this is a very informative link as to how deer are basically bred for hunters in NJ. http://www.newjerseyhunter.com/forum106.htm. It truly is an eye opening experience. Wildlife is being manipulated for the benefit of hunters in NJ. If you research, you will find the truth.
According to this CNJ (Certified Nut Job), baiting and food plots are to blame. How many people baiting and growing food plots in Bergen County and over populated areas that don't allow hunting[smirk]

“We do not have a deer overpopulation everywhere in the state,” she added. “In areas where hunters can get at the deer, they’re in control.”
This quote says it all. Again access isthe biggest issue facing the deer "problems" in the state.
