Scott thats funny! I mean that.I really never thought of it that way.I guess yall need to do some house cleaning.MSU has devoted time and money to studys on cervids for years.Someone there must be on our side.OSU is doing that right now and have for a couple of years now.We must support these programs to get to where we want to be and that is mainstream. I am not particularly fond of alternitive livestock it is our job to get the alternative label dropped. I have attended and believe me I wish I could have been exposed to the info when I began.

Skip, the reason I am confused is because I heard Mr. Demaris tell a fellow deer farmer he did not support our efforts. I guess he does support capitalism.
