Managed Hunt

Recommended Posts

Just had a Managed Hunt, 75 were allowed 3 Antlerless Deer. They killed 17 Deer.

The Land Owners were all against the hunt and now the small number killed they say it don't justify any future hunts.

Any thoughts on this?

If the landowners did not feed them like cattle, maybe they would go somewhere else

 

I dunno, nobody feeds the ones in my neighborhood but they stay around and their numbers continue to grow.   Lots of clearings and green grass with woods nearby is all they seem to be drawn to.

There were 199,427 deer killed during the fire arms season, state has 44,700,000 acres = 1 deer killed per 224 acres

Bennett Springs state park has 3,216 acres (per park data sheet) and 17 deer killed = 1 deer killed per 189 acres

Fairly successful hunt.

That's the problem with those managed hunts that are for population control. Most people are hunting for a once in a lifetime buck instead of killing deer to manage the herd.  Make it an earn a buck program at least and it might help achieve their goal of reducing numbers.  Still probably won't get the full targeted number, but it'll for sure be better than the results they just got.

How many hunters to kill 199427 deer? Did it take 4.4 hunters per deer?

3x75=225 permits & 17 deer makes 13.2 tags per deer, how does that compare statewide?

fishinwrench &  NoLuck, the OP said 3 antlerless  deer each- how do you get big racks from antlerless deer?
