    Op, ran off to the Sportsman show with my son before posting the map that went with my post. Satchmo, I didn't think you were saying that Wisconsin was doing anything better. It's just a lot of folks hold them up as a better state for Deer when there are a lot of factors our DNR has to deal with that they don't. Good thread. Lot's of close personal feelings being shared.

    It’s interesting when people compare Wisconsin to Minnesota for Deer management and population. Here’s a few things to think about that make them different and why Wisconsin has such a robust Deer population compared to Minnesota. 1) The whole state of Wisconsin is at a lower elevation then most of Minnesota meaning less sever winters for their northern Deer herd as compare to Minnesota. 2) Land terrain. There are some large differences. 3) Wolves, as the map shows Minnesota has way more fawn eaters then Wisconsin. 4) Later season. Part 1 allows the rut to be almost completed before hunting starts meaning more Doe’s have been bread. Part 2 Their last weekend is on Thanks giving which for a good number of guys means they are no way in He!! Going to be hunting at least on Thanks given day unless they want a divorce!

    Here's one. Yes get rid of the Deer farms. So far their the only places CWD has occurred in MN. Here's two. Until it was even discovered or there was a way to test for it. How does anyone even know that there has not always been some amount of CWD in the Deer herds in every state? Here's three. As PF said above. Party hunting has been a long time family tradition for many hunting families for like ever. There are still many families who actually need and can use the meat still in this state. Filling the freezer means more to many then Antlers on the wall. Which by looking at my Avatar, I can't really say much about but know the folks we use to hunt with up north were pretty darn poor and counted on venison. I also don't want young hunters which are becoming more in short supply according to another post not long ago about less people hunting and tag sales dropping. Not being able to take their first Deer because a bunch of antler mongers want them to sit and count points as their first Deer is walking away. If anything, for the APR folks lets put an age limit on it so young folks can still take a few Deer before they want to give it up, because they can't shoot the deer they finally see or just Does. I know my son's first buck was a fork horn but to him it was the terdy point buck!

    I would say this for your photo expertise. Next time, don't "Photo Bomb" your food pictures with a jug of antiseptic wipes in the back ground. Makes the viewer wonder. How safe is that sum-batchen food?
  11. Just Food and Drink
