Went to the courthouse to get my license on Monday morning. Got it and 2 DMAP tags for the unit I wanted. My father went down 40 minutes later and the DMAP unit was sold out. Here's where things get interesting. My father said a gentleman came in and heard the unit was sold out and exploded. Was going crazy on the poor lady behind the desk working in the treasurers office. She actually radioed to the sheriffs office and two deputies came in and escorted him out of the courthouse. Supposedly he claimed he had been getting a tag for that unit since DMAP tags began and he was entitled to one. Some people are unreal!

That kind of assumed entitlement and behavior is a good way to get noticed by people who are becoming increasingly sensitive to these things. Someone, somewhere is probably asking "...and this guy owns guns!?" Best to keep a distance from them who react in an inappropriate manner when faced with reality.

The DMAPS are becoming more popular now that a good portion of the state is BUCK Only, at-least for part of the first week of rifle.

I'M OK with the way and price DMAPS are awarded but I do not agree they should be allowed as doe tags where it is not open to others.

I see to many treating them as backdoor doe tags. I do not think its fair now to be able to purchase multiple tag for several units at once.
Directly behind my house there are 254 DMAP tags available, I bet more then a few came off of SGL 129, which is not in the DMAP area.
Two days in and it looks like half are already sold out.

As for the gentleman who threw a 7 over his right to a tag, just blame it on yesterdays full moon.

Agreed , IMO the Dmap tag is just a 1st week back door doe tag. And as others have said i wonder how many are used in non dmap areas .

That's the whole reason I buy them. I take vaction in rifle season. If I shoot a buck in archery, vacation is a waste for me, as my doe tags are in a buck only for the first week area. So the dmaps provide me the opportunity to still use my vacation to hunt. Does it really matter when they get used, or if it's a "back door doe tag?

Nothing back door about em. They are legal tags available to anyone who wants one. If those tags are important to you then prepare and aquire them.
The whining and complaining just go's on and on. It's like junior high school.

I disagree with calling them back door for tags. They are meant to be used in a perfectly legal manner. Like much of hunting, it is up to the individual hunter to ensure they are used in such a manner. Using them early doesn't change anything. If you'd like included in the early hunt, but em'
