  •  California has blacktails, not whitetails (1+ / 0-)

    Cany doesn't know what s/he is writing about, as the blacktail/sitka deer they have in California are actually declining from what I understand, but they are not the same animal as a whitetail deer. Whitetails are incredibly adept at living in all sorts of environments, and is overpopulated in many parts of America.  Ultimately, regulated hunting is not what causes major declines in species, habitat loss is.

    Politically organized hunters probably have helped slow the process of habitat destruction down.  

    There is no evidence that limited cougar hunting would destroy the species.  

    How unfortunate and predictable that a California liberal  would be the anti-hunting voice in responding to a good elk recipe. Ever wonder why the progressive movement sometimes has a hard time reaching regular Americans who should support them ?

    I have to say, MN is not without some flaws, and has some very minor divisions over hunting, but it is a great place for a progressive that loves hunting and fishing to be.  Our current liberal governor won the last election by a hair, largely because he was better on issues of concern to hunters and anglers.

    •  There's a portion of this web site that discusses (0+ / 0-)

      politics not policy. They're more concerned with who has the potential to win a race and why but they don't discuss wether a certain policy is right or wrong. I'm not describing them well. If they considered hunting it would be in the context of how it would affect elections.
