Hunters have long used calls in the mating season as a hunting tactic to lure game into range

Measures adopted in Mahdishahr, Semnan Province, to protect the threatened deer species against the immoral hunting technique of deer calling have been fruitful with no casualties reported last year. 
Hunters have long used calls in the mating season as a hunting tactic to lure game into range. 
However, according to Abbas Zare’, head of the local office of the Department of Environment, 15,000 hectares of area which cover a vast part of the red and roe deer’s habitats are strictly protected against poaching in their mating season, Zist Online reported.
“Setting up three protection tents has helped the DOE’s protection unit and lovers of environment to rigorously monitor and take care of the habitat,” Zare’ said, adding that this year’s protection mission is the fourth of its kind and apparently the most well-organized effort to rescue of the threatened species. 
The measures are expected to be effective in preventing the illegal and immoral practice, the official noted.
