jwall, you are either missing the point or ignoring it. There are and always have been trophy class deer in PA for hunters with the skills to bring them to bag. I don't remember the PA deer hunters complaining about the quality of the herd when the PGC decided to put their agenda into play. That agenda was never about the deer herd or the hunters. If you'll take the time to read the information my previous post, you'll realize that the PA deer hunters AND the herd are just victims of the PGC and people with commercial agendas.
It was amazing to me, that several years into the PGC's deer management program they announce that black bear cause a significant attrition in the fawn crop. HELLO! Our world class biologist, GARY ALT, was the lead biologist for the black bear study. He is also the architect of the destruction of deer herd.
What am I missing here? .or. do you work for the PGC?
