If so, then it’s been a ...

Researchers discover increases in sterility in Kodiak Sitka deer
I've hunted deer in the Kodiak Archipelago since 1967. I soon discovered venison here to be the finest I had ever eaten. For 47 years it has been a major part of my family's nutrition.

This buck had the body conformation of a doe and had no testic...
