SAN FRANCISCO — It’s the biggest and most iconic trophy deer in North America.
A hunt that’s been going on since 1928 has produced more than 30,000 of the animals.
And it’s been a tough road.
It took a huge public outcry to get a permit for the first trophy hunting season in the nation’s history.
But the hunt is back, and the public support for it is overwhelming.
That’s thanks to a campaign launched by the Humane Society of the United States to bring the deer back to the South.
“This was a huge effort, and it took a long time,” said Matt Healy, president of the organization.
The public outcry and an influx of hunters attracted more than 10,000 people to a March 31 event at the S.F. Museum of Art.
We just wanted to let people know that the hunt was not going to stop,” Healy said.
I’ve never seen anything like this before, said Laura Miller, who lives near the museum.
This is not a game hunt, she said.
The first season began in April and ran through August, with hunters in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. “
It is a big deal.”
The first season began in April and ran through August, with hunters in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.
About 1,000 deer were killed in San Francisco alone, according to the Humane, which tracks the number of animals killed each year.
More than 3,000 were killed at the museum and its sister museum in Manhattan.
Miller said it was a big hit at the San Fran Museum, where the public was overwhelmed.
They got a lot of phone calls, and that was pretty cool, she joked.
Now, after three seasons, more than 12,000 hunters have turned out.
Many of them have gone on to kill other trophy deer, including the white-tailed deer, black bear, moose, coyote, raccoon, elk and black bear.
Hence the reason why the hunt’s name has changed from the “fancy” deer to the “hunt of the century.”
“It’s one of the most beautiful hunts you can go to and get,” Miller said.
“We really appreciate the public’s support.”
It was an emotional time at the Museum of the City of New York, where museum president John Schaffer said the public has been amazing.
He said the museum has been working with the Humane to help get the deer onto the list of animals protected by the Endangered Species Act.
One of the first things that the museum did was try to get the word out, said Schaffer, who has been involved with the hunt since it began.
“The whole world heard about it.
People were really engaged in it.
We got tons of support from the public.
People came to see the show, and they were really passionate about it.”
That was a really good feeling, Schaffer added.
The public has supported the hunt, he said.
“I think it really shows the strength of our community and our community of hunters.”
In the past few years, hunting has become more popular than ever, Healy noted.
Last year, there were more than 3 million hunters nationwide, he added.
Hunters like Miller are eager to get their deer into the parks and on the trails.
“It would be really sad if we were to stop this,” Miller told the crowd.
Even the state of North Carolina is starting to realize that hunting has a place in public life, Miller said, and has passed a law requiring hunters to wear a GPS tracking device in order to track their deer.
Some hunters are even planning to start a “factory” in South Carolina, so they can track their hunting and sell the information online.
There are a few things that hunters can do to help support the hunt and help the conservation effort, Miller told reporters.
Take a photo, buy a permit, sign up for the hunt newsletter and share it with your friends, he advised.
