The article discusses the implications of the move of wildlife managers in suppressing antler gatherers and activities in Gunnison Basin in Colorado. According to the author, the initiative of wildlife managers aims to protect the welfare of winter stressed deers and other animals as well as support their developments. In addition, the author stresses that the ban on antler gathering runs from March 15, 2008 to May 15, 2008 wherein all public places are closed for public access for long periods. Gunnison Wildlife Division manager J. Wenum noted that the prolonged ban period could also hurt the welfare of deers especially with the unstable and inappropriate time and weather.
