Re: I guess I blame the PGC ???
IMO, It is a control method period. Pretty much like the sharpshooters being sent to state parks, or even someones BMer flying down the surburban street taking out a doe that is carrying twins. Out of all those methods of control, I like Red Tag the best. However you would never find me doing any deer trigger time in Feb-August of any year, if my place was in dire need of control I would let someone in to do so via Red tag. But luckily Fall seasons are all we need here.
There is a reason hunting season is in the Fall and not the spring, not only in PA but everywhere. Harvesting a deer in the spring is not for good hide, good body weight, it is to knock down the numbers. When it comes to getting a particular herd under control, sounds cruel to some, but do it when there are four hooves on the ground to flee , not 12.
In tha habitat forum, there is post of fawn that got hit while cutting hay...my reaction to that pic tells me I am no red tag hunter. But I am far from blasting the program.
