Following a recent plea from QDMA that hunters help push legislation limiting deer breeding facilities, nationally known television host Keith Warren has taken to the Internet to call out the group’s stance.
QDMA’s release included this strong position statement from Kip Adams, the group’s Director of Education & Outreach (and a certified wildlife biologist):
“There are no benefits for deer hunters in the growth of the captive deer-breeding industry — only risks. It is QDMA’s mission to protect the future of white-tailed deer and our hunting heritage, and we oppose anything that puts those at risk.”
“it’s clear from the recent statement from QDMA that this could be just as radical of an agenda as the folks with HSUS.” Warren wrote.
Later in the release (view it here), Warren states: “In my opinion the claim from QDMA that deer farming poses a threat to the future of hunting couldn’t be further from the truth.”
