2 does down!5C Public land

Was hunting the SRA in chester county in French Creek. Was in my climber and at about 610 had 6 doe come in. Shot the first time and missed the biggest one. They jumped but stayed where they were. Reloaded and shot at a different 1. Thought she was hit and she ran about 50yds and dropped. The others stayed around so I reloaded AGAIN and proceeded to drop the bigger one I missed the first time. She jumped a long ran about 15 yds and fell. Was using a CVA magbolt 50cal and 295gr Powerbelts. Pics will be posted after I get them butchered

That's awesome. I'm jealous of the experience and the full freezer but not what's in front of you tonight!

Re: 2 does down!5C Public land

Not to ruin your parade but I wonder why so many people try to fill all their tags,just because you have them?Maybe that's a big problem why the herd is down because of all these does being killed.That said I believe you broke the law by killing 2 Doe immediately.I could be wrong but I think the law says you have to to fill out and tag one deer before you proceed to shoot another one.If I,m wrong I do apologize but I think I am correct

I'll be kind here this is why the law needs to be changed to one deer/day. Too many hunters are clueless or chose to ignore the law. Will the gameless commission change the law, doubt it tags were filled so they are happy.

You are wrong. Page 24, "Tagging Big Game",2nd paragraph down.

Re: 2 does down!5C Public land

yep you are wrong, in the sra's you can shoot as many as tags you have then fill them out. as for the one's claiming the deer herd is down, probably hunt the same spot year after year.

Re: 2 does down!5C Public land

just wondering, since you were so fast to say to many are clueless or choose to ignore the law if you are considered into the clueless ones or just chose to ignore the law? since he did nothing to break a law. problem is no one takes the time in july to read the book and learn the new laws
