How many is enough? (Spec. Regs 2B)

My dad and I and my uncle have killed several deer in 2B this year. We all have all the meat we need and are now just filling requests from people for meat. We got four tonight between the three of us and I said I was done for the year. They however want to continue so I will dog it for them til the 28th. If the meat is being utilized, I see no problem. Just curious what others think?

Re: How many is enough? (Spec. Regs 2B)

I personally would not participate.

You're just asking for it on this forum without more specifics on the circumstances.

If you are killing doe where for certain they are way overpopulated to the point of starving themselves or completely destroying the habitat, it's one thing. I am very skeptical that such places exist in 2B anymore, co-workers living in 2B say that the parks and such near them are on the way to being shot out. But I don't live there, and it's a big WMU. Might still be places they need knocked back.

If you're out killing doe in places where you normally do not hunt, you might be really ruining it for others who do hunt those areas regularly.

If you're providing venison to some veteran's home, someone no longer physically able to hunt their own deer or is in dire economics due to a job loss or disability its one thing. If you're just out killing deer to provide $6 meat to someone who won't hunt for themselves, or likes summer sausage but can't bring themselves to kill "Bambi" it's another thing.

Without more details, if you are "filling requests from other people", are you cutting up and packaging the meat yourself, or are they paying to have it processed? If the answer is the latter, then in my opinion they can afford to buy their own meat, learn to hunt on their own, and should not be taking a huge windfall by getting large quantities of venison for the cost of a doe tag. Hunters who purchase licenses their entire lives are financially supporting the PGC and the future of the sport. If you are killing deer for able-bodied, employed non-hunters, then in addition to the cost of your $6 doe tag then those people should be writing a check each year to the PGC for a "possession permit".

In fact, is it even legal to possess venison without a valid hunting license and harvest report card, or a road-kill possession permit?

Perfect alibi for a poacher. Where did the freezer full of deer come from? Oh, a buddy gave it to me.

As long as you got the tags and the areas your hunting can sustain the kill, I see no problem either. In fact, I say congrats on helping with the management plan for that area.

Shoot straight
