Pittman-Robertson funds are for beavers too

All the wonders of nature are wrapped up in a 40-pound densely furred, oily creature with orange ferrous-infused teeth, webbed feet, and a scaled leathery tail.
The American beaver possesses a fascinating way of life, always centered around water and a multi-aged family unit, always busy building dams and keeping up a lodge that houses them year-round. Beaver do not hibernate. If ever there’s an example of successful uses of Pittman-Robertson funds and wildlife restoration, it would be the beaver.

First deer ever shot by 23-year-old is a record velvet whitetail in Minnesota

Kyle Bauer, 23, from Owatonna, Minn., had a couple of weeks he’ll never forget in the middle of September 2023. Bauer married his wife, Hannah, on Sept. 23, then took a weeklong vacation to Costa Rica.
Those two events would take the cake for any person in a couple of weeks. How about a cherry and some sprinkles on top of the cake? The sprinkles were harvesting his first whitetail. And the cherry was that the deer is the Minnesota state record for whitetail typical archery velvet deer and likely top five in the world for the same category.

Ryan Rothstein: Of wolves, whitetails and wetlands; habitat loss the greatest threat to Minnesota’s wildlife

Quite frankly, I’m tired of hearing about wolves. Are they a factor regarding our deer herd? Without question. Wolves hunt and kill deer. So do coyotes. So do bears. So do we. You know what lowers deer populations more than all those things combined? Human development and intensive agriculture.
You’ll never hear me say wolves have no impact on deer herds. But bleating about wolves causing our deer-hunting problems is naïve at best, and nefarious at worst. Same scapegoat, different day.
