This nonsense has to end soon!


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

I was impressed with several of the letters and opinions in Woods-N-Water News. It seems like average real hunters have more common sense than the DNR has. I sometimes wonder if the people making all these rules and setting quotas ever really get out in the woods and face reality. One deer on a deer farm checks for CWD and all hell breaks loose.

Between the CWD tags last year and the doe permits, you wonder why the deer herd is down. After thousands of deer checked no sign of CWD but Kent Co. dropped from number one in car deer accidents to number two. I wonder if mysteriously a case of CWD will show up in county number one so the slaughter can begin. Between the DNR and the insurance companies they're doing their best to ruin our deer herd.

Baiting was supposed to be banned but by the way, carrots are selling. People must be making a lot of carrot cakes or carrot soup.

Our deer herd is harassed for over three months yet every year a new weapon is added to make hunting easier. I can remember when deer hunting was a sport that real hunters looked forward to. Now it's a meat and money game where you get enough permits to fill your and all your relatives' freezer. But when the almighty dollar is the bottom line, reality goes out the window. Go back to one buck season and if you need more, harvest a doe - just one doe, you don't need five permits.

Our DNR better face reality pretty soon or Michigan and Kent County will be number 48 in car/deer accidents. Let people around the state that know what's going on in their area have more input instead of someone who sits behind a desk looking at figures that wouldn't know the difference between deer or a red squirrel.

I've been around 79 years and have seen it all. This nonsense has to end soon or hunting in Michigan is a lost cause.
