The management goals are met.


I don't know how the goals could be contained with a tag for anywhere in the state. We are looking at 900,000 doe tags right from the start. Even if they allowed everyone to have a WMU pick, how would they be able to predict and allot in advance how many extra tags each WMU would receive for the traditional drawing?


I don't see it working.
you dont hand out 900,000 doe tags, we dont have that many hunters. if there are 600,000 hunters hand out 450,000 doe tags.

i know some WMU's sell out, some dont.

Antlered tags are good state wide.
I support a statewide antlerless tag with the general license. Additional tags by WMU allocated after that to address specific areas. Most hunters get their first choice as it is and we are down to 550,000 deer hunters according to the PGC.

Of course, the pgc would oppose cause they would lose tag dollars.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

The cost of the general license would reflect the doe tag. Raising the general license is risky business.

Not anymore.

Hunter numbers are dropping like a rock.

I muffed that one - we do have a statewide antlerless doe tag, it is called a Muzzleloader stamp.
If a person bought a Muzzleloader stamp, their antlered tag automatically becomes an antlerless deer tag in Muzzleloader season.
The stipulation was that you had to give up your first option at applying for an antlerless deer tag. You couldn't buy the stamp after the doe license applications.

Now you can buy the muzzleloader tag anytime, so I guess that turns your antlered deer tag into a either or tag, unless they changed that rule also!

used to be that your antlered tag could be used as a doe tag in late season with either a crossbow or flintlock as long as you had the Muzzleloader (flintlock) license

that was before crossbows were legal for everyone. not sure about the crossbow issue anymore, i think that was changed.

Holder of tags could shoot one point less or one point more except in the trophy range when only one point more would be legal.
I shot a 7 pointer this year. I could use a 6-pointer tag or an 8-pointer tag to that, right?
