Chesapeake Bay, tidal rivers, and the offshore waters of the Atlantic hauled in 5,040 fish that qualified for awards in the Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament, according to director Lewis Gillingham.
Steve L. from Virginia
writes to ask about a shed he found. “I found a shed antler that had part of
the pedicle attached to the base of the antler. Since the pedicle is part of
the frontal bone, and overlays the brain, wouldn’t this cause the buck to die?”
Tony S. from Virginia
writes to ask about deer damage kills. “It seems to me that if a farmer has
crop damage and wants crop damage permits to shoot
deer, they should only shoot does. In the area I hunt, it seems that our buck
sightings are down, and the rumors are that farmers are hammering bucks with
their crop damage permits. Do you know anything about this?”
Jan W. from Virginia writes to ask about deer in her garden. "Other
than an electric or tall fence, is there anything I can do to keep deer out of
my garden? I’ve heard that mothballs or human hair may work. Do they?"
