In this part of 3D there were a handful of does brought in.

The bigger problem were guys with bait piles. Well at least it rained on their parade yesterday.

I personally witnessed 2 guys blasting away at a doe bolting across a field, I hunt in 1A so does are not in yet. they never touched the doe, (lucky for them they cant shoot very good) and once it entered the woods it ran 5 yards from me. I did however catch the guys out on the nearby road and politely informed them that they were shooting at a doe which is illegal now. of course they said it was a buck. I let it be and just shook my head.

I know of at least one. There were also 5 does that passed in front of me, then a shot, 4 came back though. I was surprised the number of guys I talked to that did not realize there was a change

I spoke to a guy who thought it was Buck and doe the first week and the second week it was buck only. I heard him say to another guy on the phone, its in the book and that he should check it. Dyslexia possibly?

When folks are against addition of certain seasons sometimes we hear the argument that "the regs are confusing enough already." It's not the regulations that are confusing, it's all changing back and forth the PGC brass does that makes it confusing for some.

We saw at least 10 on the hitch hauls on Monday, and heard a huge amount of shots to only be shooting buck, bear or yotes. There were as many or more shots this year in my part of 3A as any year of concurrent. Can't say for sure the deer I saw on the hitch hauls weren't dmap doe, but my guess would be definitely not.

I was surprised at the number of guys I ran into who complained about the change but had no idea about the DMAP opportunity. I have mine and haven't filled it as I only say a y buck followed by raindrops.

I heard the same thing the doe's must of been going down because there sure aren't that many bucks over there.
