The future of the whitetail is bright. Every year, new harvest records are set by many states. As the popularity of deer hunting grows, new seasons are being set to prolong the sportsman’s days afield.
In addition, local, regional and national whitetail conservation clubs have enrolled millions of hunters to join hands in working for the sport of hunting and the welfare of the whitetail deer.
But there are also some problem areas. Many deer regions are being overhunted and now carry very few mature bucks.
Biologists are working hard to provide both quantity and quality of deer hunting. But it is the action and solidarity shown by the hunting fraternity which will have the greatest impact on the future of hunting. As the saying goes: united we stand, divided we fall. Join a reputable local or national hunting club and do your part to conserve whitetails and their habitat, and do everything possible to portray hunting to the public as something done by sensitive, responsible people.
