Why TPWD has these crazy doe seasons - seems like in all the antler restriction counties. Can only shoot them during bow season, Thanksgiving weekend, and youth seasons. Me personally, it doesn't bother me all that much because I can usually get my 2 during bow season. But now, when we are talking about kids is when it really gets under my skin. It doesn't make any logical sense to me that everyone who doesn't bow hunt are forced to rush out and shoot 2 does in one weekend if they want to fill their doe tags.We hunt in a county which has a very large deer population and "keeping the doe harvest down" is definitely not an option for a logical explanation IMHO.

we hunt Leon county also and I don't understand why we cant just have the first month of general season to take our doe, I think it would help hunting later in the season instead of world war 3 going on for 3 days while everyone tries to fill their doe tags.

Big thing with leon Co. is even though there is a huge number of deer there is also a huge amount of land owners and a lot of smaller property's being hunted... the deer herd would be shot out quick.

Now imagine AR's in a county with only a small deer population to start with... lots of small acreages, and the deer harvest going from one to four per hunter, within an hour or two of Dallas....

Your thinking of lamps tags. The property size changes per county. My home area is 50acre minimum I believe and depending on the population you can get more than one tag to that 50acres.
