I do not see anything wrong with it. while I will never hunt in a high fence I still think if you want to farm deer then do it. there is a lot of money in deer farming in reality it could help the Tennessee economy. the diseases and things really are not there like yal think. people that farm deer keep there herd pretty clean. in fact a free ranging herd probably has more of a chance in getting a diseases then a private herd. I hope they pass it. A bunch of states have been very successful at deer farming I see no harm in it.

The danger of importing diseases along with the deer far outweighs any benefit the state would see from his enterprise. These diseases can not be contained in the captive herd.

The states with successful deer farming operations are few and far between. Look at Wisconsin and see what kind of problems their deer farming has caused for their free ranging deer herd.

Deer farming reminds me a lot of the Emu, Ostrich and other farms that turned out to be nothing but a shell game. Look at where these farms get the majority of their income. If it was not for other farms buying their products (semen and live deer)none of them would be profitable.

Look at the illegal activities of some of the top deer farms in TX.

I'm all for farmers being able to use their property to raise whatever animals that they want! As far as deer from other states, they have to be tested 5 yr cwd free before they cross state lines. Hope TN would do this also!

As far as the ostrich and emu market, I never saw the desire of millions of hunters looking for a "trophy" ostrich! How does Boone and Crockett score a trophy ostrich anyways? :-P

Look at this site and you will see just how much attention some of these folks pay to laws. Look at some of the other states that are dealing with outbreaks of CWD and ask yourself if it would be worth the risk to allow these folks to gain a foothold in TN.

The Ostrich and Emu market was just a shell game that promised farmers an easy way to wealth. I believe the Deer farms are being promoted in just the same way. If deer breeders didn't have new deer farms to sell to they would have to quit being deer breeders.

I'm sure any business any where you look someone will break the law! Whenever you start trading money someone is going to find a way to cheat. So why do you want to "dictate" what LAW abiding farmers want to do on their property according to the actions of others?

Do you believe just because there is a "law" on the books that is going to keep illegal deer from coming into the state? How many deer has it stopped so far? How do you know at that deer haven't been brought into Tennessee already from Wisconsin? You don't!

Most people are law abiding and all the deer farmers I know don't even fit the picture you have painted on here. They are law abiding and they sell all their deer to shooting preserves and to other farmers. They don't have to have TN to make a living. Unlike the emu and ostrich farms the preserves buy everything the farmers have to sell! S it's not your "shell game" that you call it!

Also, even if there was no such thing as CWD you would still be on here, on your "high horse" talking about how unethical it is to kill a deer inside a fence. Why not join PETA and talk about how unethical to shoot a cow in a holding pen and serving up a hamburger?

I view it no different than a tree hugger posing his "ethics and ideals" onto everyone else. Let us be Americans and pursue his or her dreams and get out of the way! All we need is more laws and regulations telling everyone what they can and can't do on their own property!

Guess you and Bowriter will gang up here and start bashing me and my beliefs next! Wish we had better things to do!
