Did you know it actually costs a staggering $1,000 per doe to implement the deer birth control vaccine for the first two years of treatment? The program is extremely high-priced and very labor intensive. Workers are required to shoot does with vaccine-laden darts that only last through one rutting period. I am definitely not an accountant, but it doesn't take a mathematician to see just how expensive this program could be for taxpayers. In most cases, areas that were densely populated with deer had disastrous results with the birth control management plan. Basically, the program costs huge sums of money, but fails to get the job done. On the other hand, cities with large deer herds that permitted special archery seasons were able to dramatically reduce numbers. Once again, hunting has proven to be the most logical, inexpensive and effective way to manage a healthy deer herd. It's imperative that non-hunters be exposed to actual facts instead of all the anti-hunting propaganda that comes out of fantasy land.
