Could it possibly be that the deer are also being pushed out of their normal habitat due to all of the oil development and the building expansion going on in this state?

I must be incredibly naive. I don't hunt, so those who know about this stuff please excuse my ignorance. I had always held the thought that hunting helped to control the population.

The writer seems to imply that Fish and Game intentionally keeps the deer population high. How would they accomplish this?

I'm genuinely curious about this. Could somebody elaborate? It would seem counterproductive to withhold tags to create overpopulation. Is this how they do it?

If Fish and Game does manipulate to allow overpopulation, rather than simply to limit the population, I would say the writer has a valid point. Additionally, I would say it's a matter that could potentially impact more than just land owners and hunters, but everyone that's ever hit a deer on the highway.
