Default Check with the Insurance People

They're into statistics not hunting.

Really dude?
Back off the Rock Star kid! As hunters (and contributers to this web site) we feel we are a fraternity of outsiders sometimes.
So lets not decay from within.

In talking to a G&F biologist, their research indicates low deer numbers can be directly attributed to lack of nutritious food.
Low moisture from recent droubts means low nutrition in the food. AND the lack of wildfires to re-grow food sourses that can provide nutrition.
In other words . . . there is plenty for them to eat, but the food has very low nutritional value so even though they are eating, they are starving at the same time.

One of our biggest problems for deer in Colorado is winter kill. Elk can handle hard winters better than deer.

Pinto is taking a 1-day timeout which should give him a chance to review the rules--especially # 3--not insulting other members. With a temp ban, he can still access the public side of the forum and read the rules. His hunting experiences and skills will be a welcome addition to HNI. We welcome those but bad attitudes and insults need to get checked or left behind at the cyber door. Welcome aboard when you get back.

I'm cleaning/editing up this topic and would appreciate everybody's cooperation in not quoting any of the insults so I have less posts to edit. If you have any questions, please PM me. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

He got off easy with one day Cal. You gave me a week for less.

Hope he learns.

No doubt there are too many "conversation" people.

Spelling and common sense seem to be lacking. Really
