One thought on “Golden Eagle Shot Near Forestburg

  1. I’m a land owner in Sanborn County and live in Dallas, TX. I spend time on our 160 acres every spring and fall. I just returned from two weeks which included planting some replacement trees and food plots for pheasants. I’m very concerned about the deer population in our area and what the Game, Fish and Parks is prepared to do about it. It’s impossible to grow new trees etc. This year everytime I went out to work I end up with 1 to 3 ticks on me. I called and left a voice mail with Evan Meier but he never returned my call. I’m prepared to work with the Game Fish & Parks in reloving this issue but need some communications. I look forward to hearing from someone.
