Lottery for Deer!!!

Hey !! Guys since our license are computer generated, same number every year. Let's have game commission draw tags by license numbers. If no draw no hunt, still can purchase for other game. These just hypothetical numbers 350,000 buck tags state wide, way less doe tags. Jump start deer herd in few years, buying pa license should not be automatic right to hunt deer!!!!!

Re: Lottery for Deer!!!

All about the numbers?? Possibly one of highest licenses sold of all states. Possibly number one in poor management of resources. Your telling, me all pa hunters would stop. Buying hunting license if a lottery was implemented !!! Great deer hunters, couldn't go a year or two with out shooting a deer.

Re: Lottery for Deer!!!

Why would we need to? I don't see any logic in this at all. There are plenty of deer around to be harvested.

Re: Lottery for Deer!!!

Grow the herd?

Your assumption being the herd needs grown over the needs and or desires of all others.


As much as I want lots of game, it is not always a good thing for all. Farmers, foresters, and the average citizen dealing with the various aspects of deer and other wildlife also need taken into consideration.


I also view this sort of proposal as being anti hunting. It does nothing to preserve the sport or invite participation.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Lottery for Deer!!!

I can guarantee I would not hunt PA and hunt other states if it were to do a lottery for residents. Other states residents that do this to Nonresidents would Be fine, and should be done this way, but to do it to residents is a silly idea just because you have problems Locating deer.
