This petition is going around to assure that landowners and hunters are not treated in a "Hitler" type of way anymore. Very sad how all this went down. No science was involved just a pure massacre.

Hitler? Really?

I know a couple of large ranch owners that have no respect for the way TPWD goes about things. All my interactions have been pleasant enough, but I ain't no large land owner.

There is no reason to look for the answer, Dave. There is a petition - on the internet - therefore, Satan himself is running TPWD. scared

Like you, I need more details before signing anything.

Must be about one of those captive deer breeder CWD messes. I see a bunch of headless deer carcasses in the picture.

Basically, TPWD acted completely irresponsibly and had a knee-jerk reaction to the discovery of CWD in a private deer herd (long after it was known to exist in free-range mule deer in west Texas, with almost no reaction by TPWD). Instead of holding public meetings where the public could weigh-in on the decisions being made....TPWD made executive decisions resulting in the slaughter of hundreds (possibly thousands by now) of privately held whitetail deer with absolutely NO SCIENCE WHATSOEVER to support their decisions. Their actions have trampled Texas private property rights, and they are literally bankrupting people as we speak.

TPWD has gotten way too big for its britches, and needs to be knocked down a peg or ten. They need to be reminded that THEY WORK FOR US, not the other way around...we pay their salaries (along with the countless thousands of people who buy out-of-state licenses to hunt on these so called "evil high fenced ranches"). Therefore, we the people deserve to have a say in what happens in the hunting industry....not have it dictated to us.

If any of you think that anything any of us do will ever have any bearing on a branch of government-be it state, or federal, you are either blind, or stupid.

The idea that "we" have any rights what-so-ever is either laughable, or sad, or some combination of the two.

You go right on and sign your petitions, and they will keep right on doing whatever the heck they please. I get it, you want to have hope, or some belief that your concerns matter. I understand where you are coming from, and again I state-laughable.
