Continued: Anderson: Where did all the whitetails go?

Could a similar situation develop here in the run-up to Minnesota’s fall election, in which Dayton will seek re-election against yet-to-be-named opponents?

Possibly, though Minnesotans in general seem more complacent than their counterparts to the east. Additionally, Wisconsin hunters are perhaps more easily organized than hunters are here, thanks to that state’s Conservation Congress, which holds meetings in every county in the state,

That said, history suggests that no one is elected governor in Minnesota without the support, if only tacit, of sportsmen and sportswomen — a category that includes about 500,000 deer hunters.

And right now, regardless how much or how little the state’s depressed white-tail herd is discussed at this weekend’s DNR round table, those hunters aren’t happy.
