One Response to Nevada deer herds down; other species doing well

  1. avatar Ryan says:

    Nevada is a place where the Ranchers have run Rough shod over the Elk populations. Tag amounts that are 30% of the total elk populations are directly to do with the fact the NDOW keeps elk numbers artifically low to appease ranchers.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
