Does Walker’s appointed Deer Czar, Dr. James Kroll, brought all the way up here from Texas to share his expertise, think “Game management is the last bastion of communism”?
The above article draws Kroll’s insights from an article published previously in Texas Monthly entitled “Which Side of the Fence Are You On?” by Joe Nick Patoski.
“…Kroll, who has been the foremost proponent of deer ranching in Texas for more than thirty years, doesn’t mind the controversy and certainly doesn’t fade in the heat. People who call for more public lands are “cocktail conservationists,” he says, who are really pining for socialism. He calls national parks “wildlife ghettos” and flatly accuses the government of gross mismanagement. He argues that his relatively tiny acreage, marked by eight-foot fences and posted signs warning off would-be poachers, is a better model for keeping what’s natural natural while making money off the land….”
This man was hand-chosen by Walker, adding to the list one more reason to recall Walker June 5th.
