Deer permit prices

I personally dont agree with the high prices of a permit but alot of deer hunters would have to agree with me that the prices have weeded out the unsafe hunters and over population on public land I hunt a place called ogleville just on the other side of columbus it started to get a little overhunted until i noticed that the prices had more controlled that!!!!

Deer permit prices

I don't think the price of the permits determines the quality of hunter applying for them. If anything, I think maybe the higher price may drive someone to shoot a deer after hours or perhaps take a longer shot than normal. In other words, spending more may increase the desparation to harvest a deer.

I think resident permits remain very affordable, it's the non-resident permits that have sky-rocketed here in Illinois...$375 for bow permit, plus 50.75 for full-season license, plus 5.50 for a habitat stamp. (You'd think the $375 would cover the habitat stamp eye roll )

Evil! Im from missouri and we are real cheap on out of state tags but i think they kind of made it now when you come hear to hunt they charge what ever your state charges. But what is killing the hunting in missouri is Rich hunting clubs are leasing a lot of the good hunting land. and i dont agree with this at all. AND NO ONE WILL EVER CHANGE MY MIND ON THIS. Sorry but if you grew up around hear . You would know what i mean because these guys ant hunters.......

I agree with you about the hunting clubs. The days of knocking on Farmer Brown's door and asking permission to hunt are drawing to a close. In Illinois, you are starting to see farms stop farming and turning into hunting reserves. There's more money in it.

At least in Missouri and Illinois there is a lot of good public land. Great for bow hunting, but I don't know if I want to hunt public land with a bunch of guys walking around with 30-06s.

The time is coming when you're going to have to buy your own hunting land or not hunt.

Evil! Yep Dave i like watching hunting shows and all that but this is a time when they are blowing it up to sale deer urine masking sent. What i have seen in my 50 years is in the last few years is all you here is management of a wild aniaml. You cant oh i know if you let the little fellers walk they will be big daddys some day. But hunting i hope like sports and racing. they are know the rich guys stuff and at one time anybody could do any of the things they wanted to try. But know hunting is heading that way AND I DONT LIKE IT. keep your powder dry and good hunting be safe. ITS aDAM SHAME
