Well I woke up to this headline on CapTimes.com (Madison, WI):
Democratic Assembly members are starting to push the issue. Brett Hulsey says “It’s a pay-to-play deal.” There is pushback from a Walker spokeswoman who says "It’s just rumors." The article is pretty balanced, except that they mention the original Texas Monthly piece about Deer Czar Kroll and they provide quotes from Kroll on his website defending himself, without giving any of the original extremely inflammatory quotes. I provided a couple examples in the comments section of the article.
Edit: some choice quotes (these are from deeranddeerhunting.com since I haven't registered at Texas Monthly):
“Game Management,” says James Kroll, driving to his high-fenced, two-hundred-acre spread near Nacogdoches, “is the last bastion of communism.”
People who call for more public lands are “cocktail conservationists,” he says, who are really pining for socialism.
Where does this leave the public-land hunter? “It will suck to be you,” said one deer manager who asked to remain anonymous out of fear for his job. “The resources and efforts will go toward improving the private land sector. This is all about turning deer hunting away from the Public Land Doctrine and more toward a European-style of management — like they have in Texas.”A bit more is below the annatto colored cheese curd
And of course, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a fair and balanced article (from last Saturday actually) titled "Cries from left groundless on deer hunt review." If you want to read it or comment on it, just search for Deer Hunting at jsonline.com.
Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot to link to the original article at deeranddeerhunting.com:
