Buck Fever - The Trophy Deer Industry Threats

See the Buck Fever story by reporter Ryan Sabalow at the links below before the four part story begins  in the Indianapolis Star  Sunday, March 30.

The series examines the captive raised deer industry and exposes the problems.

The Indiana Wildlife Federation and other leading statewide conservation organizations are fighting to keep high fence/canned hunting from becoming legal in Indiana.  Please join in this fight by signing our petition to ban canned hunting in Indiana.  It’s unethical, threatens wildlife health, and costs tax payers money.
