Do yall think TPWD is crazy on Doe season? Have hunted Cass and Marion counties for 12 years and thinking our doe to buck ratio is about 8 to 1.Why not doe all season.Everyone feel free to chime in. [Counting deer there is like counting deer in Vietnam]

Assuming you mean doe to buck ratio and not vice versa like stated. If it is truly 8 bucks to 1 doe then sounds like they have it right but guessing that's not what you mean.

Is that ratio a guess or a stand/blind count or from actual survey?

I hunted Leon County just out of Centerville last year and I felt the doe ban was unwarranted and not needed.

Poaching is crazy down there tho I heard shots all day and night. Caught 4 tresspasser with guns, confronted them then called the GW Oscar. He said it's bad in that area, he had 3 trucks down there opening day. I got off that lease quick like walking

TXSHNTR is correct.
No dead deer (buck or doe) can ever make babies again once it's shot anyway.

I don't think that the doe season is about whether or not the deer is bred. That definitely does not matter in terms of population effect. I think the theory is that less time to harvest your two does will result in less does being shot all around which should increase the population. I hunt in Bowie county and feel that the population should be higher. I think they should just reduce the doe limit rather than reduce the days you can shoot them.

Are you keeping incidental or stand counts for hard numbers or is this a WAG on ratio? What is your fawn % for this year? Are you including fawns in the doe numbers you are seeing?
