That hit by a car thing really happens! I had a great one that I let walk twice only to see him laying dead in a ditch for chasing a doe in the middle of the night.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Probably because he is actually doing real hunting .... the kind that doesn't involve feeders and game cameras that let him know exactly where all the deer area going to be and when LOL


Now there you go opening that can of worms, even though you're probably spot on.

One day the non-hunting majority is going to walk in on us and ask, "You call this hunting?"

It'd be nice if some of the "management-minded" people in this thread would look down on poachers and other violators who ruin our state's resources, rather than others who hunt within the law (taking deer legally, regardless of their reasons). It's ridiculous to put those who have motives other than your's into the "brown and down" category. Please stop trying to impose your opinions and practices on others and put that energy into something more productive.

Common ground can be found in that most trophy/sport hunters and meat/opportunity hunters have a respect for the game they pursue and the laws that protect our resources. Surely both groups want there to be animals for themselves as well as future generations to enjoy and have a dislike for those that operate outside the law and jeopardize our hunting heritage.

A diverse group of hunters taking a diverse group of deer is good for the overall population. I can't help but think if that were to shift to only mature (and by extension, dominant) bucks being hunted/killed, there would be fewer and fewer opportunities at mature deer each passing year. This would likely also result in more 'inferior' bucks successfully mating due to the decreased competition which would also be detrimental to the herd. Another possibility is a significant growth in population due to fewer deer killed by hunters, spreading resources thin and an overall decrease in quality. Not to mention more regulation...who decides what's a mature, management, or cull, when, where, etc?
