    What are you shooting them with that is blowing them up so bad? Isn't the fur worth anything there?

    "The price for the tail" Is that a bounty or is there a market for the tails?

    Nice shooting and pretty landscape. I have 8 whitetail in my back yard, can I ship them over there and get your country into whitetail?

    I would throw in a couple dozen whitetail just to keep the gene pool deversified. One nights trapping out of my tree belt should be enough.

    Call them, spot and stalk. Also hunt them by the night with light :D

    Yes plece send my a few whitetail, we need more species to our country.
    Only one big game to hunt, reindeer and only 1000 per year.
    But we have alot of artic foxes ( 14-16000 adult ) and need to shoot them. They eat our traditional Christmas food, the ptarmigan..:rolleyes:
