We had been in the Iowa DNR depredation
program for almost 10 years with tens of thousands of dollars of
deer damage being done to our property. We had
spent thousands more for depredation permits with little
reduction in damage to our property. "Stop the
deer damage" changed all of that. We shot 52 deer
the first weekend and 23 more the two weeks after that. We have reduced our deer damage by
over 90% because we have reduced the deer by the same
amount. We now keep the deer numbers low year
around and still have plenty of deer left for "hunting" season.

We had a windbreak we were trying to get
established, the deer were
coming in at night and eating and buck rubbing on our trees,
destroying many of them. We contacted the Iowa DNR
to see if something could be done. They said we did not
qualify for any state depredation program. "Stop the
deer damage" showed us how to remove deer at night using
a spotlight and rifle year around, under our constitutional right to protect
our property. We had almost given up on our
windbreak, but now it is doing fine.
I have been
protecting my property from deer for many years using
your program. Recently two DNR officers came to my
place and started accusing me of poaching deer and
threatening me with all kinds of things. Someone
must have turned me in, as many people know what I do.
I remembered your web site and what you say to remain
silent and NOT answer any questions or comment on
anything they say. I remained silent for several
minutes, while they talked. I kept my composure
and the only thing I could think to say was: "Stop the
deer damage". They stopped talking, got in their
SUV and discussed something. I decided to get my
camera, as you recommend. Before I could get some
pictures, they left and have not come back. Your
program works, and I continue to protect my property.
