Here in the Black hills of South Dakota our big game tags are determined by a draw. The Game Fish and Parks(GFP) department for the state are in my opinion, managing the Black Hills deer herds with 1950's mentality. Due to a taxidermist and some lazy hunters sending in a petition to the GFP stating that mountain lions are decimating the deer and elk herds, the number of deer and elk tags have been decreased for the 2nd year in a row, and the mountain lion tags have been increased. I know they are lazy hunters because thay drive around along the forestry roads and look for something to shoot instead of getting into the woods and sitting. Then they complain that they haven't seen any deer. I have written to the papers and the state myself and I have heard of a few other "true sportsman" hunters writing to them too. I stated that "If those so-called "hunters would get out of their vehicles and get into the woods, then they would see the game. I sit in the woods and have seen many deer and elk(including a 6x7 bull elk that was 30 yards away from me and stood there 5 minutes), but what I don't see in the woods are other hunters". In the 6 years we have been hunting this area, we have had many hunters drive their trucks in front of where we are sitting but have only seen 1 other hunter out of his vehicle. GFP doesn't seem to care that shooting a deer from a vehicle or on a forestry road is as stated in the rules-ILLEGAL. All I can do is preserve my integrity as a true sportman. I would like some other hunters to tell me what they think.
