Every year in New Jersey, more than 1,000,000 animals are hunted and killed.
To engage in this recreation, hunters spend millions of dollars on license fees, and nearly every penny goes solely to the salaries of state employees.
Those employees in turn provide animals for hunters to kill. Their mandate for such wildlife management comes directly from a Council that is controlled and dominated by hunters.
That is the vicious cycle of wildlife management.
Though this is the story of New Jersey, you will find that no matter what state you live in, the following statements hold true:
Hunting is a business and state biologists practice economics, not science.
This site is dedicated to explaining the realities of wildlife management, and the damage that it has done to our state. All of the information used for this comes directly from the New Jersey Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife, The New Jersey Fish and Game Council, The New Jersey Federation of Sportsmen, and others who profit and take pleasure from hunting.
Here, in their own words, those who tell you publicly that you need hunting will tell you the truth: you do not.
