But... but... you don't understand... if ya do that you'll put a hole in your pole.

my wife shot a doe and i shot a doe with in an hour of each other. had to drag two deer to the car while she carried the rifles and seats. drag one a distance and go back and drag the other one to where you left the first one. set the seats up and take a break. repeat. just leap frog like that to the car...no problem.

I shot two adult does in one day several years ago. Fortunately I was only in about a mile, there was snow on the ground and it was pretty level ground. One drag rope in each hand and away we went. It wasn't too bad.

If you have legal tags for the deer fill em all in one day if you can. My desire to shoot does is gone but if you eat the meat I don't see the problem.

I'm with you. Now that I'm retired I do a lot of hunting solo.
I don't want to drag out 2 Deer.

I still kill does on out of state hunts because the properties I hunt have limited hunters and does need killed for management purposes. But I haven't applied for a doe tag in Pa since 2007; nothing political, just figure let somebody else have the tag(s). I quite killing does on public land in Maryland even before that, after they implemented the ridiculous limit of 10 per season, 30 per year, which may have been needed on private land, but, IMO, was way too much on public land within an hour of both DC and Baltimore.

How do you get that out of what I posted?So you think it`s ok to mow down a herd of 5 does if you have the tags?Where do you think bucks come from?IMO it`s fine the way it is.

Right, your all for protecting doe- however this scenario happens all the time in the Special reg's areas. We have zero issues with it. In your post, you were all about protecting antlerless deer, I know that but if it is an antlerless deer, and you have tags to legally do so, why not? Your hung up on "no doe killing" aspect, your allowed to your opinion, but I have in the Special reg's areas taken many deer, many doubles within seconds apart (no triples yet), and it's legal. The question posters raise would it fit the rest of the state? Your more concerned with protecting them then being a game management tool, sorry.

Some people thing the Gameless Commission makes changes for no particular reason but they know that that in any given WMU it takes x number of tags to get a kill. This will increase the efficiency of the tags issued so backdoor herd reduction along with the other backdoor herd reductions such as sat opener, sunday hunting and going back to concurrent buck/doe without significantly reducing the antlerless tags (it's probably next). Rosenberry has never seen a live deer that he didn't think was a problem. All this effort will have a greater effect on public land then on private and most of the areas that I know that need a little reduction is on private purple land..
