I would be curious to know if Patch will be covering the no cull rally and asking participants where they are from. It seems to me that a great deal of the outcry is coming from out of town. Also, thank you for the time and location, we'll know to avoid that area and stay away from stupid herd.
Lawrence S. Smith January 13, 2014 at 06:54 AM
I cant get the story, what am I doing wrong?
Taylor K. Vecsey (Editor) January 13, 2014 at 09:53 AM
Lawrence, what story are you referring to? Conservative Underground - I will be covering and I will ask the people I speak to where they are from, of course.
PJ Delia January 13, 2014 at 10:36 AM
I hope to be at the rally. It seems to me that most people who want the culling are from out of town.

I'm not sure where I land regarding a cull but I will say where culling was allowed It has made a impact in bring down herd sizes according to what I have been able to find. We have to watch where we get our information, it all depends on who's paying for the study and what they want it to show. If you dig deep enough you can find the truth of it. I see people complaining about the cost of a deer cull, $15,000.00 is East Hamptons end of it. Depending now how many deer are taken it is a cost effective way to take care of this problem. Contraceptives for deer birth control is expensive, NYS isn't the cheapest or the most expensive but It is about $500-$600per and could be much higher. To do this correctly a deer must be tagged to make some she is dosed, this is done by hand. In some cases, depending on what agent is used it requires a booster & or some type of maintenance. Just 250 deer at $500 is $125,000.00. According to The city of Bloomington and many others who have these control methods "Treated deer populations must be isolated, or closed, from adjacent populations. Deer immigration from adjoining properties would negate any fertility control efforts within the treated area, as new immigrants have not been exposed to the fertility agents." This reason alone makes the idea of contraceptives a pipe dream since trying to contain our deer population is incredibly hard. Ask anyone with bushes and flowers that keep getting eaten by these deer. I would be in favor of keeping the season open longer for our local hunters, it would accomplish the same thing and the cost would be negligible and in fact raise some funds, hunters could or would buy extra tags. I know a great many hunters here in town and everyone of them have a great sense of their town, this environment and what it means to them. Let the locals decide what they want to do with where they have lived for generations and keep the politics from up island and elsewhere around the country out of it.
