It seems to be the trend all across the nation. State after state announcing plans to reduce game tags and cut back on the number of game animals allowed to be harvested, seriously cutting into hunter opportunities.

New Mexico is considering cutting way back on the number of deer that will be harvested due to a population decrease. It seems that any talk of lost opportunity and game population reductions is quickly attributed to lost habitat and, of course, global warming, but with the nationwide movement to protect large predators isn’t much of the loss of game animals due to predator protection? Aren’t hunter license fees essentially going to providing feed for over protected predators?
