A real conundrum for fish and wildlife services Manitoba.
The counts for deer across the province are way down – hence reduce hunters daily takes and bag limits. On top of that never mind the deer “What goes on in the minds of real hunting folks and professionals ???”
Yet those same group of animals seem to have exploded in populations in the City of Winnipeg environs ? Go figure – is it a reduced population overall , a migrating population , or are teh deer smarter and know where both its safer from hunting and the “living is easier “.
You be the judge .
There is a lot more in detail at the following link at this authoritative Canadian Broadcasting Corp . CBC link: One concern it seems is bovine tb in older animals .
Stay tuned for more action so to speak – or deer smarter than most Manitoba bureaucrats . Or if you live in the “Big City” perhaps you can call animal services and wait and wait for them to trap and relocate said animal back to its ( or their) reserve. Lets hope the wildlife makes it back to Lake Manitoba Narrows . After all you have to have a reliable and new truck for the long haul up highway 6. Then again - go figure it all out . isn’t nature amazing ?
Yet be concerned for these deers and concerns of bovine T.B..

And then there are the real hunters :
About three weeks ago my son called on the way home from work and said there were three deer on Fleet Ave. It was nice to see them, so peaceful. I’ll never forget the look of the car coming around the corner and seeing a deer standing in the middle of the road in the middle of the city. It wasn’t getting out of the way so we all just stood and watched and took pictures.
There safer in Winnipeg no hunters outside. By the way conservation officers where all laid off. outside the perimeter. Guess you still have an urban cowboy counter left inside the ring.
People Winnipeg is the crime capital of Canada, there is cancer and other serious illnesses, young men and women are dying in wars and you are making a big deal out of a few deer. Get a grip and look at the real problems in this world. Stop being so self centered and selfish. Maybe if you got out and volunteered you would not have time to sit around and
