Extending Doe Season

I remember when the harvest was down during the traditional 3 day doe season the PGC would extend the season. Is that something they would consider now that doe season in a week long?

Re: Extending Doe Season

I really hope not. This is the less Deer I have ever seen in a Deer Season. Others will say this is the most Deer I have ever seen in a Deer Season !!

Re: Extending Doe Season

I would say no. That's the whole reason they reduced doe season to one week, and made it the second week when there are less hunters in the woods to lessen the doe kill.

One thing that gets under my skin is the fact that they extended the cwd areas, now you can buy extra tags for these areas, and also shoot does the first week as long as you bought these extra tags. Why not let us use the doe tags we already purchased and just let us kill does for the first day or two of season!

It just goes to show that if they care so much about reducing the herd to prevent the spread of cwd, why not let hunters shoot them without spending extra money on tags that we already bought!

Re: Extending Doe Season

It wasn't as easy as saying "Ok let's add a day or two because of bad weather".
There is still more archery and with the mild weather we are having and crossbows the harvest will hit predicted numbers in the end.

My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen

That's why you use a flintlock...

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: Extending Doe Season

Wow, that's a good one. I have seen fewer deer this year (public and private land)than I have in years. I can honestly say that I heard 0 shots today between two different game lands and 100 s of acres of private land. If we want to continue to have a huntable population of deer in PA we will have to take it upon ourselves to not fill out all of the antlerless tags that are bought. I am not saying don't shoot any, but shoot just one. The hunting heritage for future generations depends on it. Nope, I am not a biologist. Just a guy that's been hunting for 40 years and I see issues. Be honest and think about it.

Re: Extending Doe Season

Hunted local SGL yesterday and shooting was very steady from daybreak up until I left at 11.

I ate my doe tag but not by choice.

You just cannot make a statement like "Don't shoot them, because there are none."

My kid hunted a stand on Saturday and Monday....saw 20+ deer in two morning sits. I hunted it yesterday and saw 0.

An empty sit OR two does not = low (or no) deer numbers

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

Re: Extending Doe Season

Ever since the three day season was ended and the 2 week slaughter season and now the week season was implemented its been an extended season. Definitely no reason to extend anything. There are plenty of people making a donation to the game commission to see squirrels in the woods during rifle season.

PETA hates me, but I'm okay with that......
