In an e-mail sent to each commissioner, Kim Stolfer, legislative committee chairman for the Allegheny County Sportsmen's League , called the impact of the agency's deer-herd-reduction program one of Pennsylvania's most serious wildlife-management failures of the past hundred years.
"Most objective-thinking Pennsylvania sportsmen have questioned the science behind Pennsylvania's deer-management plan, and wondered if such drastic action was really necessary," Stolfer
hopes the commissioners will read and ponder Eveland's report.
"We are not asking people to believe us blindly - that's why we put the information about the deer program on our website,'" he
"It is in the best interest of the commissioners to sit down and evaluate the information presented by John Eveland, and if they find it as valid as we do, they can redirect the deer program."
e-mail to commissioners, Stolfer
wrote the following: "Gentlemen, we at the Allegheny County Sportsmen's League
understand that the future of deer hunting and the tradition of hunting in the commonwealth is in your hands.
