Most of this will fall on deaf ears. I get it. I’d rather see awesome photos with clever catch phrases too. However, it doesn’t change the fact that managing deer populations isn't just a nicety of herd quality or vegetative composition anymore, but something with life changing consequences. In recent news:
* @justinbeiber became the latest celebrity to battle Lyme disease (joining @alecbaldwininsta@shaniatwain and @benstiller to name a few)
In Oct, former senator Kay Hagan died after a long battle with Powassan virus.
* @cdcgov 2017 saw the largest number of US tick-related illnesses reported (~60,000) that’s estimated to be a “fraction of the overall number” of true cases.
Lyme disease has increased by >300% since 1993 and now reported in all 50 states.
Last but not least, CWD is continuing to spread and be found in new places
The main link in keeping these things at bay is keeping deer populations at healthy and sustainable levels. The rate of spread of CWD and host tick abundance scales with deer density. Worst yet, as these problems continue to grow and anti-hunting sentiment rises, we lose our primary tool—hunters—in managing the problem.
Fewer hunters + more people = more deer/ticks/disease transmission/CWD/car accidents/property damage/etc.
There should be no more illusions that managing overabundant deer populations, especially in our state parks and urban areas, is unimportant or not worth the trouble or worry of dealing with public reaction and anti-hunting/animal rights groups. It’s imperative that we illustrate the vital and necessary role that hunting plays in funding conservation efforts, harmoniously balancing wildlife populations with the environment, and maintaining public health/safety.

But there are a lot on of birds in Texas and it should be on any true waterfowlers bucket list.

Day one, first swan hunt, North Carolina... In these morning hours, my expectations were met and more, amazed that we were able to traffic these swans over to our spread, despite the freedom of the surrounding miles of fields. This particular group came just short of shooting range, although that in itself felt like a victory.
You know I’ve been told that I live a pretty cool life. Yeah it may seem I’m as happy as can be but In reality I’m on the struggle bus. Struggling to be happy and confident with who I am always negative towards self. Struggling to find my place in this world. Just out here trying to be able to be the best I can be and you know what it’s a cold lonely road getting there.

We’ve had a pretty crummy duck season this year, dealing with unseasonably warm temperatures, less than respectful hunters, and just plain being busy. This girl stuck it out with me though and today she was rewarded with her first two greenheads! I watched in awe after I called the shot as two drakes fell before I even had the gun to my shoulder. I couldn’t help but smile as I swung on the final fleeing drake canceling his flight as well. 3 shots, three ducks. I guess all the trap shooting helps in the field too. The sand has run out for us on this duck season but we are already looking forward to next year!
