oh great...walker hires a guy from texas to run the dnr

why do i care here in illinois? could it be the deer wasting disease that tommy t unleashed in wisconsin and northern illinois?

so walker hires a guy from texas that wants to get rid of a wisconsin tradition older than his age and iq combined?

way to create even more hardship for the local economy across wisconsin scotty.

we are fighting the deer wasting disease here in northern illinois by making sure there are safeguards such as field testing deer,controlled hunts in high deer wasting disease areas,and hunter awareness programs. we do not have the local bar at the intersections or in small towns like wisconsin does. so we really have to rely on field testing and the deer hunter`s word.

2. This is just Step 1 in Kroll's plan to privatize deer hunting.

 

Use of our natural resources should be limited to the wealthy, doncha know?

“Public Game Management Is The Last Bastion Of Communism” Dr.James Kroll-Walker Appointed Deer Trustee!!

According to Wisconsin’s White-Tailed Deer Trustee Dr. James Kroll, people who call for more public hunting opportunities are “pining for socialism.” He further states, “(Public) Game management is the last bastion of communism.”These are just two insights into the man who has been asked to provide analysis and recommended changes to Wisconsin’s deer management program. Kroll’s insights are from an article entitled “Which Side of the Fence Are You On?” by Joe Nick Patoski for a past edition of Texas Monthly.

If nothing more, the article gives an unabashed look into the mind-set that will be providing the Wisconsin DNR with recommendations on how to change their deer management practices. James Kroll (also known as “Deer Dr.”) was appointed to the Wisconsin “deer czar” position last fall. He was hired by the Department of Administration and instructed to complete a review of the state’s deer management program.



Here’s a sample of the article:



“Game Management,” says James Kroll, driving to his high-fenced, two-hundred-acre spread near Nacogdoches, “is the last bastion of communism.” Kroll, also known as Dr. Deer, is the director of the Forestry Resources Institute of Texas at Stephen F. Austin State University, and the “management” he is referring to is the sort practiced by the State of Texas. The 55-year-old Kroll is the leading light in the field of private deer management as a means to add value to the land. His belief is so absolute that some detractors refer to him as Dr. Dough, implying that his eye is on the bottom line more than on the natural world.



Kroll, who has been the foremost proponent of deer ranching in Texas for more than thirty years, doesn’t mind the controversy and certainly doesn’t fade in the heat. People who call for more public lands are “cocktail conservationists,” he says, who are really pining for socialism. He calls national parks “wildlife ghettos” and flatly accuses the government of gross mismanagement. He argues that his relatively tiny acreage, marked by eight-foot fences and posted signs warning off would-be poachers, is a better model for keeping what’s natural natural while making money off the land.

5. Somebody should tell the right-wing voters about this

And make sure Mary Burke knows the correct answer when she's asked about it.
