Steve and his family have been raising whitetail deer since 1992. They have been traveling to sportsmen's events, schools, and churches to educate the public about whitetail deer behavior and hunting techniques since 1996.
Steve and many other family farms across the state are being targeted by the MN DNR via a new rule banning the travel of farmed whitetails in the state of Minnesota. This rule is an overreach by the DNR because the deer farm industry is governed by the MN Board of Animal Health. Additionally, this rule pertains only to farmed whitetails as opposed to all farmed cervidae.
On January 6th, Steve was given a ticket by the MN DNR for traveling with his deer to the Minnesota Sportsmen's show in St. Paul, where his deer will be used for an educational exhibition.
