Recently I have seen several articles about the decreased populations of wild game as a result of the domestic drilling agenda. Apparently, this is nothing new.
My friend, Laura Paskus, wrote an essay in 2007 about the impact drilling has on wildlife and hunting.

She spoke with several authorities on hunting. Bob Elderain is with the Colorado Mule Deer Association.
“Deer hunting as we’ve known it isn’t going to exist,” he says. “It’s going to come down to road hunting.” Elderain has been hunting in western Colorado since he and his wife moved to the area in 1974. To be sure, he’s lost some of his hunting spots to the maze of rigs and roads, but, he says, it’s the outfitters who are hit hardest: “People aren’t going to pay good money to an outfitter when anyone can go out there and drive right up to a herd.”
Don’t miss my previous post on the impacts of drilling on animals.
