What we must never forget—and must never let anyone else forget—is that hunters pay for deer management. Our dollars are significant enough that, without them, most state game agencies would fold. No group that weighs in on deer policy—not the farm bureau, the timber growers, the bird watchers, or even the insurance agencies—pay a nickel to manage deer. No, they spend their money on the political process. And they are organized. We’re not. Consequently deer hunters, and deer, have suffered.
