Proposed new regulation for antlerless deer

Postby buckcrazy » Thu Apr 27, 2017 7:06 am

Was reading about a proposed change to the number of antlerless deer a hunter can take that under this proposal. Was wondering what some of yall think? Serious question ,How many hunters kill their limit of deer each year?
I haven't killed my limit in several years because I choose not to but I'm sure there are numerous hunters that do. Is that the reason for reducing the number that can be taken under this proposal?

Based on what I hear other hunters say during deer season, I think this is what the greatest percent of hunters asked for. Deer Populations fluctuate, and this is just a reaction to the declining populations in some areas.

Of course, some folks don't like "change" period, and they will complain. I don't kill my limit each year by choice, so this will not bother me at all.

I don't kill that many deer each year any way so I don't see it affecting me anyway but the way it reads as I see it is they talking about cutting out killing does on all open public land except during archery season and youth hunting.

It has been many years since I "limited out".
Last year I fired not a shot.
I thought I read somewhere last year you could take all of your does in one day if you were so inclined?
Is this so?

I limit out on bucks most years, but in the last 10 years I haven't killed over 5 does total. I let the kids kill what does need to be killed. Our club rule is no more than 3 does per membership, so the new law will not affect us.

We are very close to the Homochitto National Forest. The population there has been hammered for a long time with very low numbers now. It also affects the surrounding property's like ours. Bottom line, I think the new laws will be good for us even though they don't directly affect us.

I kill a doe a year. Saying that this year was the first time I pulled the trigger in 3 years.

I'm all for the new rule and such. But how are they going to enforce it?

I've never had the kill all mentality, but it's out there.

I don't think we have ever limited out. I know I have never killed more than 2 in a season. I know we have seen a huge decline in population in some areas. There are always those "hunters" who kill just to kill, and probably don't even use the meat. I think, as always, that there has to be more enforcement.

As others have said, it will not affect me. I have not fired a shot in two years at least. Not enough does here to justify shooting any, and the legal bucks only show up on camera at night. The rut did not start on my place until the week after season was over. So I usually just go to the woods to enjoy the peace and quite.

I think they've let it go to far the last few years in my opinion. I wouldn't mind if they even lowered the buck limit to 2.

I have heard talk of a two buck limit but have not seen anything in writing. It would not bother me if it did go to that I haven't killed a deer or shot my gun at a deer in three years but I can blame myself for that. I just lost interest in hunting a couple years ago but I am looking forward to the coming season.

Like most it doesn't bother me. I just don't see how they can enforce it. I haven't seen a warden in my area in 20 years. And most folks just kill as many as they want. Ethical hunters will always police themselves.
