Especially when it's from Catelli Brothers...my grandfather worked for a long long time with the company, so I'm well used to see and having veal from them (when he worked there before retiring and passing away).

Foxes and buzzards need to eat too. 25% of the redtag hunting I do for me, the other 75% of the time I try to satisfy the request of landowners who need hunters to participate in this program. I much rather not dress out a doe with fawns in them but I do, its not the most pleasant thing but its gotta be done and there are worst things. The reward of my redtag efforts is an open invitation to hunt on property that produces opportunity after opportunity for me and a few others. try being part of a solution.

Been away since the harvest. Made the last post from the treestand after i shot what i thought was a yearling doe. Got down from the tree and walked up to the deer and down was a yearling male with maybe 2" spikes. Surprised? yes. Disappointed? Heck no. Not going to hurt anything in this area, besides not having to dress a pregnant doe was a plus.

Re: successful redtag morning

Please refrain from bashing or "inferred" bashing on red tags. The hunter had a legal harvest in an area that is in need of population control with a valid tag.

Congrats to the hunter on a sucessful kill!

Re: successful redtag morning

Matt, congrats on your kill. as long as you eat the meat, more power to ya brother!

IMO, I'd like to see the red tag program revised. as far I can see, the red tag program is run through the PA farm bureau and only requires two things:

1) farmer must give access to hunters for two years prior to entering the red tag program; and
2) must have a commercial farm

No refernce at all to deer population on a given farm or amount of crop damage. And please dont take this post as being against matt or protecting our PA farms. I just think it needs revised and I'd like to see the herd reduction done in the fall vs. spring.

Again, Matt, congrats on your kill. You'll be having lots of burgers over the summer!

Re: successful redtag morning

To those who want to discuss the ethics of the red tag program there is a thread about it in the AR/HR & Deer Management Forum. This is not the thread to do so.
