Deer are being sited all over the metro area. There is a shortage of the medicine used to treat lyme illness.

Yet the DNR restrictes deer hunting to small areas of public property. Hunting could be allowed using bait and uncontrolled hunting can be allowed on private property.

Lyme illness is a serious sickness with shortage of meds to treat it.

It's time to get rid of metro deer!

DNR where is your sense of urgency?

Local municipalities can thin the deer herds. They can easily get a permit from the DNR, but the DNR never initiates this sort of thing. Believe it or not, the citizens of the municipalities mostly object when a local deer hunt is announced.

The DNR can take a leadership role and push promiscuous hunting just like they do with AIS control.

When presented with lyme illness and shortage of meds to treat same the majority of public will support culling the deer herd.

That's not how it works. The DNR manages the state as a whole. Municipalities manage their resources and make those decisions.

Lyme disease comes from Deer Ticks, not Deer themselves. Less deer doesn't mean less ticks.

Studies have shown that if you reduce the deer density to about 10 per square mile, you dramatically reduce the tick abundance, and Lyme disease is dramatically reduced also.

Are you ever intelligent AT ALL ?

We have a very healthy supply of Hmong in the Twin Cities.

All we need is for Government to get out of the way and the deer would fall and lymes illness would be reduced.

Here is a link to a map to illustrate lyme disease cases nationwide:
http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/stats/maps/interactiv...

And here is a map of Whitetail Deer density nationwide:
http://www.google.com/imgres...

Judging from the abundance of deer in Texas, there were very few cases of Lyme disease, which would directly contradict your assertion that deer numbers are the one deciding factor in deer tick numbers.
You got your information from an opinion page, not exactly an infallible source.

My source seems a lot more accurate than seeing a corresponding relationship between deer and lyme illness.

Deer ticks originate in mice and then are picked up on deer. There may not be as many mice in Texas.

It seems to me if an island had lyme illness and then got rid of deer and the illness went away there is a very good correlation between ticks and deer.

Conflicting reports no doubt. Seeing that deer ticks will attach themselves to all kinds of critters, not knowing the numbers of other animals on the island could skew the numbers too. I agree that mice could be a factor, maybe even more than the deer.

sorry, but 40for60 is correct. the ticks are the carriers. the reason why the main ones are called deer ticks. is to differentiate from the other species of ticks.
.
they have found that deer do not suffer from the disease
.
this one has a picture showing the size of the ticks in relation to the size of a dime.
http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/transmission/ The Lyme disease bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, is spread through the bite of infected ticks. The blacklegged tick (or deer tick, Ixodes scapularis) spreads the disease in the northeastern, mid-Atlantic, and north-central United States, and the western blacklegged tick (Ixodes pacificus) spreads the disease on the Pacific Coast.
.
the deer tick is known by a couple of other names too
http://tickinfo.com/deertick.htm Western Black Legged tick, Black Legged tick, European Wood tick, Sheep tick
.
this describes many of our parks that we have through out the metro:
http://www.uri.edu/ce/factsheets/sheets/deert... The deer tick is found in grassy areas, open fields, and especially the margin where fields meet wooded areas.
.
.
this is true for all states where the tick carrying Lyme disease is found
http://www.animal-advocates.org/info/file... Recent scientific studies disprove the correlation between killing deer and the
reduction of Lyme disease. You could kill all the deer in the state of Maryland
and you would still have Lyme disease.
Barbara Metzler, a member of the Center for Disease Control’s Lyme Disease
Task Force said “the name deer tick is a misnomer to begin with” and wrote
“while deer and mice can both serve as hosts on which ticks harmlessly feed,
only mice can transmit the Lyme disease bacteria to ticks. The deer don’t.”
