Thank you to Barbara Schmitt, and Mary and Bob DeFilippo, for the
many articles they send to us. Barbara was horrified to see an ad for
deer semen for growing bucks with large antlers for the killing. She
wrote: “Of all the information I have collected over the years, nothing
is more horrible than what is in the enclosed ad.” If you don’t believe
it, you can see the ad in the Whitetail Journal, April 2005.
Thank you to Ronda Roaring for posting information and her letter to
the Ithaca Journal:

According to the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
(DEC), there are current 460,000 “participants” in the state’s deer
hunting program. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were
19,190,000 people living in this state in 2003. By my math, that means
that only 2.4 percent of the state’s population hunt deer.Yet, these
people are trying to control the state’s deer program and our lives each
According to the DEC’s Web site, it appears that, due to pressure
from the hunting contingency, the archery season will start on October 1
this year. The muzzleloader season will also be extended. Deer gunning
season will start on SATURDAY, November 19. No matter that October 1 is
the height of fall foliage tourist season, no matter that you may want
to hike in the woods, photograph wildlife or wildflowers, or simply walk
your dog, your life this fall will be controlled by the 2.4 percent of
the population who want to kill deer.
The other 97.6 percent of us who don’t abuse wildlife need to take
back the outdoors. Send comments to: Big Game Season Changes, NYSDEC,
