Bradley, I live in Hiram and I really don't want the deer population to grow any more than it is. My gardens would disappear!

Hello my name is Brad Walker, why cant Maine have the same management for deer that they enforce with turkey no females get shot during breeding season for 3-5 years this would help increase our deer population!
Bradley Walker added this note
