I have no problem with hunting on National Wildlife Refuges. Especially white-tailed deer hunting. There are more than enough white-tailed deer, very few (if any) natural predators, and their numbers can be so high that they greatly impact vegetation.

I can honestly say that I have not personally seen, in my opinion, a refuge that mismanaged hunting on its lands. (Granted, I certainly have not visited even 25% of the NWRs in the US.) But mismanaged land use in other respects, yes.

My local refuge got sued a few years back by the Center for Biological Diversity. It was partially spearheaded by some locals, too. I was glad to see that we (the concerned public) can still put enough pressure on agencies to elicit change when needed.

Ellen, just bring up the Delaware Audubon page and right above the comments it says, Write Post. That should do it!
