Our Fish and Game DEPT. does nothing as far as habitat. They advertise that deer feeding is bad for deer but do nothing about it. They did a lousy job at bringing back a 50 permit bobcat season.

I have lived and hunted here my whole life, I had exactly two shot opportunities this year, both on yearling deer, and saw a total of 8 deer while from a stand in over 100 hours of hunting.
