I just heard from one of the WDFO board members that the bill to switch Ohio deer farms to the Dept of Ag has successfully passed. Congratulations and Thank You to all the Ohio board members for thier hard work on this project.

Congrats to ohio. We hope Michigan will do the same and get the DNR out of the picture.

Deer Whisperer, get a hold of your Sen I think it should be Sen Tom Casperson. SB27 is setting on the Senate calendar for 2-3 months at 18 in line to be acted on. Everyone in Michigan should be contacting their Senator, then they will get message we are serious. The Pig ISO (Invasive Species Order) has this whole thing messed up. Anyway I keep the pressure up as much as I can. Alex

I guess this is a good thing, I've had deer for 10 years in Ohio and never had a problem with the DNR.

Trust me it is a good thing. While it is true that Whitetails are natural resources in most states, the deer we raise are not the state's natural resource. It makes much more sense to be under the agricultural heading where there are vets, not wildlife biologists. Generally there is less opposition to hunting ranches then as well.

Who would you rather have coming out to check your deer? A game warden armed with a pistol or a vet armed with a syringe and stethoscope?

Yup ya better be careful what you ask for. We have people in the ag dept that come to our farms to do and read tests that have not even been trained to do such tasks.Cattle maybe, Deer..Not so much. I believe there should be a federal rule that applies to all deer farms in all states. Tags,testing,number of deer per farm( Dumbest law ever made) Then the ag dept would not be clueless when it came to do permits and such.

In Ohio the Dept of Ag has been very supportive of deer farming all along while the Dnr has been trying their best to get tougher rules in place to discourage deer farms. We always have and always will deal with Ag on health issues etc. Why would we want to deal with 2 agencies when one can do the job?

I dont know about a good thing here, now I had to pay to transfer to dept of Ag by the end of dec. They sent me a nice peice of paper yesterday saying it was issued jan 15,2013, and would expire on march 31, 2013, wow... good for almost 2 months! They also sent a letter saying that they needed another fee to give me another useless peice of paper that will be good till the following march 2014, nice double dip method there!



Now tommarrow, the div. of wildlife is coming to do a pen inspection and collect a fee for prop permit again.....



All I have done now is pay more money to 2 gov agencies for nothing. Us little guys got screwed on this big time!! Now we have to pay a vet $200+ dollars every year to tell me how many deer I have. And then again pay them(vet and dept of ag) to send a head in for cwd testing,which is going to be more $$$$$. nice.....



I never had 1 issue with the div. of wildlife in 9 years I have had deer, now I have 2 agencies to deal with and they are standing there with thier hands out wanting money.
