B&C by state/prov. 2005-10

Harrisburg Patriot-News outdoors writer, Marcus Schneck, devoted today's column to the Boone and Crockett Club's latest news on trends in various states' trophy deer standings (and Canadian provinces).

His column is not yet linkable, but here are the states' rankings from B&C. PA has gone from a tie for 45th place (1980-85), to 20th place by 2005-10.

There are probably more that could be entered, but some people just don't care about record books!

I hunt deer in 2F, 5c/d. I hunt waterfowl in whatever unit they happen to be in on that day.

Can't understand West Virginia (low ranking). All in all, is their terrain THAT MUCH different than PA ? They seem to have about the same make-up of farmland and mountainous terrain.

Re: B&C by state/prov. 2005-10

denny, is mexico a state or a province?

neat article. glad to see pa climbing up the rankings, but i'd still like my chances of shooting a booner better in manatoba(#34).

Fleroo

a buck never has a chance to live old enough to make B&C here unless it lives in one of the 4 bow only counites in the Southern end of the state. Buck limit is 3 per hunter but in the past it was 5 a season.

The 3 buck limit is mostly a joke any way. We have an honor tagging system. You can make your own field tags and then have 2 days to check in the whole deer or the head and hide. A guy can arrow a spike one day, field tag it, take it home, butcher it and then forget to check it in and arrow a different dinky buck the next day. Rinse, lather, repeat.

I really don't understand why the DNR bothers to print regs ever year. Mostly a waste of paper.

Re: B&C by state/prov. 2005-10

Why did they compare to 80-85?? Sounds suspiciously like some severe "cherry picking" imho. ;.)
