Maine can learn something from Pennsylvania's deer mistakes

Blog Showcase Image: 

 Here’s a fascinating article about deer problems and issues in Pennsylvania. On Thursday, our legislature’s IFW Committee hosted “deer day” hearing a bunch of bills focused on deer permits and other issues, including a bill to limit hunters to shooting bucks with tines of three inches or more on each side.

I’ll have a report on those bills, and the interesting testimony at the hearing, soon. Right now, I recommend you read this article, and think about whether any of these issues are pertinent to Maine. Can we learn something from Pennsylvania’s deer problems?
