In the industry of wildlife management or wildlife control or wildlife removal, whatever you want to call it, the phones have not stopped ringing lately! This could be contributed to several factors but as we as a race continue to put our human thumb print on this country with land development, forestry, industrial expansion, and rising populations we are literally giving wildlife no where to go other than to live amongst us. Its not uncommon to see deer, geese, turkeys, coyotes, etc. living in suburban neighborhoods that used to be a wood lot or wetland. So, as we expand and continue to develop this problem grows and grows and grows. With fall arriving so does hunting and trapping season for active sportsmen. However lately due to the lack of access to land the sport has been in a rapid downward spiral even with a spike last season in license sales with many Americans not working due to Covid -19.
Here is a list of reasons everyone should thank a hunter/trapper or better yet give them permission to access your property because without them the following would be much worse.
In the history of hunting and trapping many sportsmen fight the battle of either animal lovers harassing them while they hunt or new laws and regulations making it harder and more expensive to get out there but there are many reasons why if you are a property owner you should reexamine why you don’t allow hunting or trapping on your property! These are just a few of the many reasons you should not only allow it but be thankful for a sport that is heavily declining due to lack of access. So, the next time someone knocks on your door asking for permission to provide food for his family or help control the numbers of overpopulated wildlife, give it a second thought before you slam the door.
