well it’s less hunter’s with more tags!!!sounds promising, only didn't mention less hunters. So to believe on the numbers of harvests is hard to believe. I used to hear shots constantly all day long, not any more. What does that tell you?
You really don't understand a lick do ya? But again, you are entertaining.less hunters more tags? More tags for less hunters? Most guys I know only have a regular license. Buck only. The PGC ALWAYS sells out of anterless tags every year in 3A... even with less hunters. Deer bed down and stay down.. so much for more tags.
so the multiple tags they buy....how many do they fill? Do they get lucky and fill them? I doubt it. I really do. That's what you miss here....... Do you know how many tags are filled, NO you don't. Do you see on CAMERA what's out there? If you do, how often you see them while you hunt or better yet land on your tail gate? My wifes nephew has a camera but hasn't come home with one yet. Why is that? Gee I guess I'll never now? Oh yeah he hunts alone.You really don't understand a lick do ya? But again, you are entertaining.
There may be less hunters (still over 700,000 out there) but each hunter often has more tags than they used to. And also more of those hunters are hunting and being successful in other seasons besides rifle. And even many that hunt rifle have changed when they do it, a number of hunters actually wait until the second week to really spend multiple days hunting when does become legal in most units. Yes, many if not all units sell out of doe tags, there are several rounds of tag sales and hunters can apply for at least 1 tag each round. And how many hunters do you still actually know to know that they only have a regular license? By your own admission you barely spend time where you hunt and how many days each season are you taking the old Buick to even hunt here when you do? You said you didn't even hunt PA this year either.
Or maybe it’s time to visit an audiologist?Haven't heard a single one during rifle season..... but maybe you're on to something !
I have come to the conclusion that I am missing something as far as strategy.Or maybe it’s time to visit an audiologist?
I hear way less shots in 3C now compared to 25 years ago, but as has been said, can’t hear a bowstring from across the ridge or valley.
But I still hear shooting and see deer in pickups.
I would’ve thought seeing how your other thread went you’d have realized that what you seem to be seeing or experiencing is NOT the current state of affairs for the majority.
The biggest difference I’ve seen is that those that hunt together do better than those that hunt by themselves. That group of 20 is full of selfish pricks, they don’t bother to hunt as a group because that could mean that someone else might get their deer. This is why they have such a low harvest rate, on the flip side you have the SRA/Red tag guys. In their case they are hunting properties where you can’t throw a rock without hitting a deer so they have plenty of harvest opportunities with little to no effort.I have come to the conclusion that I am missing something as far as strategy.
