Reader Response: Should there be more regulation of Texas deer breeders?

A debate over whether deer should be bred for hunting or left to nature is brewing at the Texas Capitol. Last week we asked readers what they thought about upcoming state legislation to place limits on Texas deer breeders.

The long-simmering conflict was recently rekindled by the introductions of House Bill 2471 and House Bill 3271, and is taking place largely between big and small ranch owners as well as a number of wildlife protection and hunting groups.

Disagreements have arisen over the ethical treatment of deer by breeders, economic and health concerns and the tradition and culture of Texas deer hunting. You can read more in our Sunday story.

This is what readers had to say:
