Kansas deer hunters are your ready to say goodbye to big bucks like this?
Kansas has gone from the last place to one of the top deer hunting states in the country with over 640,000 whitetails.
Deer feeding has played a big part in that success!
Harmful effects will occur if the KDWP Commission bans deer feeding:
- The Kansas deer population will shrink.
KDWP admits that feeding results in increased deer populations.
- Encouraging youth to take up deer hunting will be harder.
Seeing deer up close while hunting is the best way to get kids excited and maintain their interest.
- Archery hunting will become more difficult.
Archery hunting success relies on bringing deer close to the hunter. Feeding increase close encounters.
- Kansas landowners' property values will decrease.
Successful deer hunting has significantly raised rural land values.
- Kansas will lose revenue and local businesses will suffer.
Hunting brings in over $ 700,000,000 to the Kansas economy annually.
Kansas Department of Wildlife (KDWP) claims feeding spreads Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)
FACT: States with highest CWD rates have restricted or banned feeding for decades, yet high CWD rates have remained.
FACT: Supplemental feeding improves herd nutrition levels making deer less susceptible to CWD and other diseses.
FACT: Kansas has lower CWD cases than other mid-western states adn we have always allowed deer feeding.
