Yes, did find out that he had filled 26 red tags for this year and had has plans to apply for 30 next year..the tree farmer didnt get 30 more red tags. red tag ended last month. he may have Dmap tags or some one is pulling your leg. you guys can go get some red tags in February 2022 when the season starts again and fill your freezers or at least offer to help pay the farmer for some of what he loses to the deer. maybe he wont get red tags then.
one farmer i know gets in red tag every year. he has a huge problem with deer because all his neighbors have their property posted. their property is all woods and THEIR deer feed on the farmers corn and soybeans. they constantly complain and the farmer asked them to unpost their property or at least help pay for what he loses, they said no to both.....i killed two red tag doe there last year. even got nice piebald doe one time.
The tree farmer, never mentioned to any of the neighbors that he had issues with deer and invited any of the deer camps to come hunt his property. He has about 100 acres of his own and leases about 50 from a neighbor. None of his land is wooded, so the deer he shoots are bedding/living in the neighboring hunting camps, and residence...
We understand that he has losses, but shouldn't he expect some losses when you build a tree farm in the middle of deer country. Are their any limits on how many red tags he should be able to get?
