Stop Dangerous Pro-Hunting Law from Passing

This is a shortsighted protest. The lack of hunting on some public lands like parks has led to an explosion on the deer populations in many areas of the East. This should be allowed on a case by case basis. The predators that kept deer herds in check like wolves aren't there any more folks. Add to that the increase in edge habitat in our suburban areas and we have a deer herd 5-10 larger than the carrying capacity. Lead shot is already banned for waterfowl hunting; Banning lead bullets seems like over reacting to a perceived threat. Is there any research to back this proposed ban? Finally, if I read it right, the law allows previously hunted trophies to be brought into the US not new ones. so how is that encouraging trophy hunting. An experienced field agent can tell a fresh mount from an old one.
