Stop the Deer Damage
Restoring the environment –Protecting our property—Saving lives

Thank You to the following persons


To the people who have donated to this web site to preserve our private property rights by keeping people informed.

 Mr Shawn Meier, DNR Cedar County Conservation officer, for finally charging  me so I could take this case to court.  His action resulted in being able to shoot deer year around now to protect property. 

Mr Jeff  Renander, Cedar County assistant attorney, who prosecuted me.  He showed me exactly what I needed, to prove the necessity defense in regard to my constitutional right to protect my property.  He now has stated he supports a persons right to protect their property, and has signed his "oath of office" stating that.

Mr. Greg Harris, Depredation officer, who has now changed how he determines damage caused by deer for me.  He showed me that the hunting season and the Deer Depredation Program has never and will never work to protect a person property from deer damage.

The many persons who supported me, and showed up at my trial.  My lawyers for getting the necessity defense in my case.   And lastly the 6 jurors who had to sit threw three days of testimony, I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."
