What is wrong with the DNR? It seems they are messing up all over our state. First they let dang near 2 years pass, knowing a deer is being kept at a home. Then they show up wanting to kill the deer. There's the other Marion county issue with the contained area with coyotes in cages where dogs practice chasing them- and it not being the right hunting season.(A judge was even involved with that one, telling the DNR to do something about it- but they didn't. And no, I don't fully understand that situation.) And now they won't give this guy the promised antlers, after he helped them.
Who is to say

Did the Conservation Officers have the authority to make such a promise? You're right, the DNR brass needs to do some performance reviews with their subordinates and implement an improvement plan for the ones in need.

Or hey...just maybe teh selfish people in this world, who want to benefit from our wildlife by keeping things of value or getting a really cool pet, actually lie or embelish the truth a whole lot, in order to get the media to convince pin head thinkers to believe in the ridiculous stories. I for one choose not to believe in anything the media throws our way, I think they are always out to stir everyone up and portray non-truths and half-truths as actuality. Were you there when the conservation officer made this so called promise?...was there any such thing said? Is this just someone's selfish manuever to get something that doesn't belong to him and gain from it? Wake up you decieved people!!!
