Land fragmentation/urban sprawl taking more & more good hunting spots down.

Continuing to carve up the wild game species and seasons by method, time, age, gender physical status,veteran status,etc. We create more seasons to specialize for groups and we continue to lose hunters and by basically in many ways using seasons etc. to discriminate general hunting disguised as special opportunities. All these political issues detract from research, science and overall management of the species. We also seem to be consciously and continuously heading toward the only real value in hunting privilege is to be involved in some extreme aspect of hunting be that size etc. Pretty hard to interest the youth not members of current hunting families when the expectation is for extreme success and not enjoying nature. Many of whom become hikers, bikers, kayakers, canoers and not consumptive sport users. To me it is egos and bias of people that are far greater problems to hunting than any wild species.

A big problem around here is invasive buckthorn taking over woodlands. It grows & spreads like wild fire.

It probably deters some from hunting and is a drain financially on state resources. It has resulted in an increased doe harvest, causing many hunters to see less deer (some enjoy the xtra doe tags, some don't). It has lead to the inconsistent placement of baiting bans creating a sort of patchwork of counties in which baiting is legal. Bioligists say it is a deer herd health concern. It creates potential uncertainty in the future of the herd. It could decrease my property value if a deer tests positive in my area. It pits deer hunters against deer farm owners.

I get it that it's been around out west for probably well over 50 years, but it has not been a welcome situation for Wi. All 1 has to do is consider the huge financial cost it has been for Wi's already tight state budget. It is extremely costly. No one likes diseases. The disease seems to be spreading. I feel for the people in the few counties that have it so bad where there's been years where certain counties have had ~20% of tested deer test positive. It has made managing the herd more difficult.

It's been here long before they brought it to the public's attention in the 90's. It's a political play and nothing more.

A lot of the woodlands in my area have been converted to red pine it seems. They may grow good timber, and can provide good cover when the trees are young, but don't necessarily provide a lot of food once mature.

Even if that is true, it doesn't make any of AJE's concerns less valid.

Deer baiting. The honest guys struggle to compete with illegal bait piles. Baiting is illegal in most Wi counties, but you wouldn't know it.
