From Northern News Now:
EFFIE, MN. (Northern News Now) – Where’d the deer go? That’s the question being asked by frustrated hunters across northeast Minnesota after years of falling populations, culminating in a near record low harvest this season.
The lack of success seems to have both hunters and deer agreeing on an ultimate enemy. Wolves.
Calls to remove them from protected status have never been louder, in hopes of returning the northern deer population to its glory days.
