Deer Slaughter Continues
If I was you, I would relentlessly pursue contact with the forester representative on your committee. I'd ask him to share with you the locations of over browse occurring on public land in the county. I'd let him know that I was a hunter, and interested in harvesting animals and have had a hard time finding public land locations that hold animals. Given his current statements regarding his stance on the population, he should have several areas of over browsing on/in forested areas of public land and should be more than willing to help you find them in order to help protect against over browsing.
Either he answers, and you get some ideas on where past logging operations have resulted in over browsing and you find some areas that will offer more opportunities... or he doesn't and you can publicly call him out on that.
Same-same for the agriculture rep. He made statements to over browsing and also made comment as to some farmers needing help. Get in touch with him and relentlessly request the names of these farmers who are struggling with this severe over browsing and are looking for help in reducing deer pressure. Either you get access to private land to help... or he can be called out too.
I have hunted the county forests of Washburn County for years, and the deer population is almost non-existent. To even have any public tags available is a shame to say the least. The forestry rep to the council likely would rather see no deer, and would never vote to increase the herd. They simply want trees and the money that goes along with them.
