Send a self addressed envolope
If you're from Pittsburgh, that would be a Self Abused (self addressed) Stomped (stamped) Antelope (envelope).

I know.... that just won't make sense unless you're from the burgh.

ABSTRACT To assist landowners in achieving their deer management goals, the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) developed a number of landowner assistance programs. The Agricultural Deer Control Permit Program (Red Tag Program), established in 1995, and the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP), established in 2003, provide landowners with additional permits for hunters to take antlerless deer. During the 2010-11 hunting seasons, 870 properties enrolled in DMAP. The PGC issued 27,588 DMAP coupons, of which 23,736 were redeemed for DMAP permits. Fifty-four percent of DMAP permit holders submitted their mandatory report card. Hunters using DMAP reported harvesting 4,423 antlerless deer. In 2010, 165 participants enrolled in the Red Tag Program and reported a harvest of 964 deer.

I sent for the list of farms in the North Central Region. I was shocked the letter came back with only one farm, which was in Tioga county.

Red tags are what ruined the hunting around here. Numbers haven't been the same since with all the regular doe tags available they have never recovered. What some people don't realize is that those deer that are shot in the field are the same deer that spend most of their time three miles away in the mountain. Used to see over a hundred deer almost any night spotlighting before the red tag now it is a good night is you see twenty and those nights are few and far between. It is an effective tool to reduce the herd for sure.
