I got one - just filled out --- Didnt like it...

***********************************************************************************************
What is your most important reason for hunting? (only allowed to choose one)

For the sport or recreation

to be close to nature

for the meat

to be with family and friends

for a trophy

dont know...
***********************************************************************************************

I dont know about everyone else - each of these except (dont know) - is more or less important to me...

Because I am going for the Meat - I really enjoy the exercise - And now hunting with my son and other buddies - enjoy the nature and time to reflect - and any deer I shoot is a Trophy....

So trying to paint me in a corner on this question I didnt like.

***********************************************************************************************

Also alot of question about what is a trophy deer? and How many points is a trophy? Looks like they are trying to increase the size of the rack to be taken in a zone....

***********************************************************************************************

Didnt like the survey - I know by taking this survey - no good deed ever goes unpunished....

Those in the green jeans aren't out to get us as a whole, let's not forget this state give more power to beaurecrats regarding wildlife management than wildlife biologists.

But yes, I commented often on too many cats too.

I got the email but have not responded yet. I'll get it done in the AM.

Is there a section dealing with the preference point system?

Completed mine.......no sense in mentioning mountain lion management since that's out of their hands. However, I do believe it's time to get rid of the 2nd deer tag option in this state, as we issue far too many tags compared to the resource available.

Based on the questions about hunting does it seems like dfw has realized the need to harvest more does

Britlab, they've always known. But because 37 of 58 counties can veto proposed doe hunt s, they're not inclined to propose hunts year after year only to get smacked down.

No chit! Definitely one of the major issues. As well as Roy's comment about "2nd tags and issuing far too many tags compared to the resource available."

What about making harvest report cards mandatory so they actually have a clue as to how many deer are being killed in each zone?
Obviously there are a ton of concerns regarding how to best manage the deer in this state. But I would like to see DFG address any of them to get the ball rolling. Other western states are continually modifying their management plans each year. I can't speak for other counties but very little has been done in the last decade or more where I reside. I honestly believe that if managed more effectively, areas of our state could be as good as other top western states.
