Shivering Urausu Town and vineyard!

by Kazu

What I saw with nostalgia in last summer was covered with snow in this area, too.
Mt.Shokanbetsu(-dake) shows the white skyline in the north of this hilly area of Urausu Town where the widest vineyard in Japan is run by HokkaidoWine Company headquartered in Otaru City.
Hiking season has gone but the season of hunting has come! But, to be honest, the number of hunters in Hokkaido is not enough and the existing hunters are aging.  On the other hand, the number of deers in Hokkaido has been on the rise and they ate up the veggies, crops and fruit the farmers grew. Basically, we Japanese people are the tribe of agriculture and the culture of gibier has not been here to stay. If we set the spacial area of hunting deers for the tourist from other area of Japan and globe, will the number of tourists will increase ?
What do you think about it? We have to cull the number of wild deers in Hokkaido.
But, unfortunately, it is not clear who is responsible for adjusting the number of deers in Hokkaido. The leaders of the municipalities in Sorach sub-prefectural area said it is tough for them to arrange and carry out the countermeasure against the damage to the agricultural produce brought by deers.
Primary, Hokkaido Government should commit to draft the plan to cull the number of deers.
Secondary, the plan should be executed by the government.
Tertiary, the effective and efficient way to kick out the deers from the agricultural fields should be developed.
In this case, the important thing is easier way for farmers should be developed. Traps are valid to deers but it is a little bit dangerous to for inexperienced farmers to kill the deers trapped.
Quaternary, the culture of gibier should be introduced and make it penetrated in Japan.
I am planning to set up the web site that introduce "the gibier of Hokkaido".
Even these wide vineyard can be damaged by deers.  Some farmers who run the orchard in the outskirt of Iwamizawa City grumble that
 as if they grew the fruit for deers.
The light of hope has not been seen. But we should take action for the farmers!
