Deer season is over and I do not know how other folks have done, but it has been the third year in a row that I have seen fewer deer.
I know the policy of the Department of Natural Resources was to reduce the herd to make fewer car-deer accidents. I feel that we have gone too far and the troubling thing is that these folks are the same ones that managed the pheasant population.
Rich Patterson offered hope in his deer biology piece (“Deer numbers increase rapidly,” Jan. 13). A simple solution is to stop shooting does and the herd will rebound. Do not buy extra doe tags.
If we want safer highways, stop talking on the cellphones. I remember when driving was a full-time chore; now it is something you do while you’re talking on the phone.
