Well maybe they should call it something else then?    Because owning 5 acres makes you just as much of a "landowner" as 500 acres does.

I have 12 acres and there are enough deer on it for 3 guys to all have a successful hunt without hurting the population.

You're exactly right owning 5 vs. 500 makes you the same in MDC's eyes but you're smart enough to know the 2 aren't equal in the actual grand scheme.

You want to use that argument then MDC gets money from the state, feds, and conservation sales tax. Based on that alone, there should be no "costs" to hunt or fish.

Since your awash with deer you should lease out your property for hunting and make some extra $$$. See how long before they are gone.

They are just meat deer, no trophys and very few mature bucks, so nobody wants to hunt here.   We can only consume one per year in this house, and don't have freezer space for any more than that anyway.  30-50 per year get killed on the roads within 2 miles of here every year yet there seems to be no noticable effect at all on the population.

I don't understand why they won't let people that can truly use the meat kill all they want.  It would be better than letting them rot in the ditches.

They injected it into their brain.  Show me a case where a human being contracted some sort of prion disease from eating a CWD infected deer.

I found the study where they did that but, they did far more than that to other test subjects...the whole test study will be completed in 2020 however they shared some of their findings, eye opening and disconcerting at the same time,

Seems like years back you had to own 75 acres to get free landowner tags, but can't say for sure.  I buy a couple tags for myself and a couple for my wife, even though they will happily send me tags until I  am sick of cleaning deer, for free.  I live within one of the CWD special zones.  5 was enough last year and it's never difficult to find takers for the meat.

The main reason for the change, imho, is the money received from the Pittman–Robertson Act. I saw that MDC got $1.70 for every tag SOLD.

 

I never looked it up but some years ago I was  told by  some one in that organization that I should get all the land owner tags available to the whole family because they all are considered "sold" for P-R money purposes. Unless that has changed this increase in acreage is going to be a net loss to MDC and by extension to all of  us. Sold = issued.

I believe the old regs did call for more land than has been required since the big herd downsizing began, it might have been 75A. I know a 1/4 section only got one buck tag for all the seasons put together. What ever caused the antlerless tags changed everything including land requirement.

So much crying over a $19 tag.....I hope those same people don't bass fish or else they would really be crying.

Even most land owners I know who actually take hunting seriously hunt land they don't own and that requires them to purchase deer tags anyways. The only ones I know who strictly use land owner tags have far more than 20 acres anyways.
