Ar/cwd

Should there be antler restrictions in CWD areas?

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

At the rate we are losing hunters and the way most people practice their own AR, I don't think it is necessary to have it anywhere in the state anymore. Won't be overly long until the whole state is a CWD area either.

I have been saying that for a while now that AR is not necessary any more. Other states that do not have it seem to be doing very well.

I agree. I also think that the culture of hunting has changed where many practice their own "AR" anyway.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

AR was not put in to make them magical 140 plus bucks it just was a way to get the hunters to shoot doe.
When a mistake kill is 500$ fine that makes most ppl scared to pull the trigger on a buck.
The whole thing was HR and still is. Aloght of guys would shoot that spike or fork horn and b done plus b happy about it now we just target the doe the baby makers to keep the numbers liw on deer population

Just think about it u don't stop population growth by letting bucks live u take away the doe. For years PA kept saying too many deer gave more tags more time it didn't work so HR was done with a great salesman gary. Kill the big doe and save the buck and u will have this he held up a rack from the double diamond ranch
Just think how many bucks there would be if we didn't shoot a button buck at all for one season . So what is are actually doing for the Hunter nothing it just created antler worship along with the TV shows

No there shouldn't. And Kudu raises a good point. If half the hunters that claim they only shoot mature trophy buck's really do, then AR is unnecessary.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

I praise GOD that CWD has not spread down here yet, but I have to once again agree that the time for AR is passed, and from all I am reading today, has done more harm than good, from increasing the amount of "protected" deer which likely will never be anything but, to potentially stunting the growth of adding new hunters to our ranks.

when the pgc is paying sharpshooters to cull deer in the DMAs it doesnt make sense to have ARs.
