Just checking all the dma-2 tags are sold out on the 5th. day you could apply for second one. Last year it went past the 3rd round where they was unlimited all total I had around 6. The year before of which was the first year for them they didn't sell out. I could understand that since the publication of CWD didn't go out till after the guide came out. I really enjoyed these especially as a NR paying the same as a resident and I could actually hunt 2 different WMU's and be exempt from the split season. I just wonder why they was so much of a hit this year. Ill be very happy with my 2 dma-2, 2- regular doe lic., and 2 dmap tags. I remember the day it was impossible for me to get one tag as a NR.

Some of the appeal has to do with expanding the zone. The new section contains areas I hunt in 2E. By getting a DMA2 tag instead of applying for a bonus 2E tag, I can use it in a MUCH bigger area, I was able to buy it outright instead of the lottery, and I can use it the first week of rifle season.

I believe since 2C sold out quickly that hunters jumped on the DMA-2 bandwagon since part of DMA-2 is in 2C.

I have to agree, last year they moved the boundary west a good distance of heavy hunted areas. It was good for 2C to jump on to and this year they moved it North with only giving an extra 1000 tags.

I attended the meeting in Berlin last Sept. PGC said it is here for 5 years. So I take it 2 more years since this is the 3rd year for DMA tags.

Don't forget the word of mouth factor along with forums such as this one. During the first year anyone I mentioned the DMA tags to had no clue what I was talking about. The word is out now.

Deer tags specifically for Disease Management Area 2. It's one of the PGC's attempt to control the spreading of CWD.

Ok... call me dumb but what exactly are DMA tags.
I would never do that. It was not until about 3 years ago that I knew what a DMAP tag was and hunted Pa. all of my life.
