Mess surrounding Texas deer breeding isn't getting fixed  June 18, 2011  Management  Austin American-Statesman

East Texas deer breeder Billy Powell pleaded guilty last week to federal charges that he violated the Lacey Act by bringing at least 37 white-tailed deer into Texas from several other states. As a licensed deer breeder in Texas, Powell could have bought and sold animals through any of about 1,200 other licensed breeders in the state. There's nothing that prevents that....Why didn't he do that instead of going out of state and risking the wrath of the federal government? The answer is probably bigger deer, bigger trophies, more money.
