Truth is Oregon is feeling impacts on it’s deer herds partially because of habitat, partially because of chronic waste disorder possibly it’s a cycle but certainly predators do their fair share of damage to the prey. Bears eat fawns when convenient and mountain lions are averaging a deer a week! Yes hunters kill some deer but a Hunter is a deer a year and a mountain lion is 50-60 a year! Shoot one cat and you have saved hundreds of deer. Coyotes are another big predator. Do us a favor if your going to hunt deer, elk and other game animals take it upon yourself to do your part and kill predators as well. Hunters are a valuable tool and we need to utilize and understand that.
