Lack of animals makes for long, boring deer hunt

(Continued)

Recalls deer heyday

Mike,

Good column Sunday. I am glad we both hunted during the heyday of deer hunting when bands of deer moved back and forth all day.

The first day of (Maryland) rifle season this year I hunted from dark to dark and saw one deer. The Department of Natural Resources’ statement that the low deer harvest was caused by the acorn crop was an insult. To date for all seasons, our 18-member club killed three small bucks on 800 acres. Doe hunting should be curtailed to build up the deer population.
