Paul Shelton talks Illinois deer this afternoon on "Outside."
"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1), a start-up public radio station in Kankakee. Click here for online listening options.
Shelton, shown above at a conference at Rend Lake Resort in 2009, was our first on-the-phone guest, so we have no in-studio photo.
The forest wildlife program manager for the IDNR covered a wide spread from the psychology of deer hunting to the economic value of deer to the broader meaning of deer in modern urban/suburban society.
We touched far too briefly on EHD and CWD at the very end.
I wanted to get more into the idea of or necessity of culling, but time ran out.
