    Yeah, I have processed five deer myself this year also. I am tired of it. But, I do still have a buck tag, and you don't stop believing, so I am going to try to fill that buck tag with another mounter. I am looking for a deer in the 180 class. I have passed several 150 class bucks the past two weeks. NOT!!!!!! Just kidding. Anything 130 class and up is going on my wall, and that is all I am shooting.

    I wish I could find someone to do it for $60! We just take ours to my buddies place he has a rig(winch, and pulleys in the roof) all set up in his garage right above his drain and we cut all the meat, debone, bag it, and take it in for processing. 80 lbs. of sausage cost me $111(1/2 and 1/2 jalapeño/cheese, and regular). The doe I got with the mzldr. is bagged and frozen waiting to be taken in. So far this year we have put down 9. (4 me, 3 Rick, and 2 for my brother) My buddy shot one button buck, but the other 8 have been does. Had two chances for big bucks, neither resulted in a BBD!:frusty: First one I couldn't get my bow drawn due to my fall harness tether and the second I missed with my muzzleloader!:noidea::frusty: I am still hoping to fill a couple tags, hopefully get something to keep my 8 from last year some company on the wall:noidea: time is getting short.....:doh:

    I don't know if your asking me or someone else. In Ill. you can shoot as many does as you buy tags for. $26 (1 e/s and 1 a/o) With the mzldr. I got two sets of tags, one set for coles cnty. and 1 set for moultrie county, and an extra a/o tag for moultrie.

    You live in PA?

    In PA you get 1 antler tag w/ license purchase then you have to send in for doe permits. if you get lucky you'll get 2 permits.

    For Illinois archery season you can shoot as many does as you buy tags for. However, you can only shoot two bucks the entire year, no matter what weapon or season it is. The bow tags are bought over the counter and you get two, one either sex and one antlerless only.

    However, if you live in a county that they have found CWD in you may take additional bucks if you still have unused either sex permits. But you must take that animal with the weapon that the permit was issued for. The CWD season is in mid January though, when the hunting gets real tough and it is realllllyyyy cold outside.

    I remember, reading somewhere that you could use your Antler tag for Antlerless during muzzleloader season. (I could be wrong on that):noidea:

    wait so you are saying you bought your license and then drove to Harrisburg and bought THREE antlerless tags?

    Now I'm really confused.

    The maximum number of tags possible (without red-tags) is 3 in about 90% of the state. Thats 1 antler tag, 1 antlerless tag and 1 bonus tag.

    Some (VERY few) areas had a 3rd round of tags which would mean you got 4 tags total and were extremely lucky or live in a city. How did you drive to Harrisburg and get tags?
