If any of you guys are familiar with what the PA Game commission has done over the past few years, it worked! The game commission has called for a mass slaughter of the PA doe population. I do not agree with it and i never did. I have been killing the same amount of deer for the past 10 years, but licenses were increased, and the doe season was lengthened.
I am not the greatest hunter in PA, but i have had pretty good success hunting over the past few years. As for this year, I did kill a nice 9 pt buck. I think the antler restriction that was put in effect a few years ago was a great thing to do, but as for the doe population........
i have hunted pretty hard this year and i have had 1 doe in bow range. Not that i am even seeing any doe. I literally have seen more buck than doe, i don't think it is a good thing at all. you need mammas to make babies! this is both public and private land that i hunt, the deer aren't here anymore.
5 more years of this crap, you will get your picture in the paper for killing a doe!
my tally for the season that i have seen from the stand is 6 buck, 7 doe, and 9 that were too far away to tell, and like i said, only 1 doe was in bow range all year. it gets worse and worse every year.
