Re: New Proposal

I just started to see some deer again on a regular basis in the Big Woods. The hunting camp will just be a fishing camp if that happens.

Re: New Proposal

I hope it happens. Will get rid of the second week crowds and make it like it used to be.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Re: New Proposal

Im not sure thats totally accurate. I only saw 26 this year on the hill across from your camp on the 1 drive instead of the usual 30+. Population must be getting hammered.

Re: New Proposal

In the parts of 2G where I hunt,I feel deer numbers are right about where they should be for the most part.The regeneration is definately showing sign of improvement but there's definately more deer now than say in 2005.I don't want to see the deer herd grow much at all but I don't think it really needs reduced either.I'm ok with keeping the seasons the way they are now.although I don't think an extra week will make a big difference around here just because of the lack of pressure.

Re: New Proposal

I'm concerned about it also. I was hoping that this split season would work and that the whole state would go to it.

Re: New Proposal

They raised the tags approx. 20% to compensate for the fewer days to harvest a doe, now if they don't adjust them back down if they go to two weeks we will know that the motives of the Gameless commission has been exposed. The motive being shoot as many deer as we can get the gamehogs to shoot and to heck with actually managing the herd in a way beyond what second grader could do. If the do lower them to compensate, I will happily be proven wrong.

Re: New Proposal

That's correct and I bet you see them lowered.
