WOW!!!!!Guess someone p$##@D is your Wheaties.Talk about ill informed!!!!
Licenses already jacked up,lots of people still hunting,deer numbers not increasing.
Rules are enforced,just not enough CO's to cover the areas.
As for the deer wounding seasons,well theres a can of worms you opened.I'm guessing your not talking about gun season,right?Which is,and I'm GUESSING,where the most wounding happens.60 yards and under I can do anything with my bow that you can do with your rifle.
Time for some hunters to get out of their rut,same goes for the gov't.Rest of the world is moving forward and we're sitting still as is our deer population.
Trust me you are still going to be able to shoot your 1.5 years old deer even with APRs in effect,it would just have to have atleast 3 points on one side instead of 3".I'm gonna wait for those teenagers and daddies and put twice as much meat in my freezer as you will with you child deer.Just judging success from meat in the freezer is all.
I still can't understand why some think that APRs are just for trophies.Again get with the times,read some info,like the info I provided.Its about overall herd health and AGE STRUCTURE,which is lacking here in NS,IMO.
Like I said before I'm all for doing things legally and don't judge someone for shooting whatever deer pleases them.Just saying that something has to be done to help our deer population.Nothing the DNR has done since the buck only law came into effect has worked,NOTHING!!!!Just threw our deer herd out of balance big time.Just because you see a lot of deer in one area still doesn't mean that its a healthy herd.Throw in age structure,buck to doe ratios and get them where they should be then you have a healthy herd.Just ask Pete.
