Deer Tags? are you getting your this year?

I was wondering if you all got your tags or not?   Seemed like we alway got are tags for Mulies in the draws in the past, at least for Me.   "But Now"  just starting a couple of years ago,  Me and most of My hunting camp didn't get them, And this year is a repeat and it seem's to soon to happen again.  Are there any reason I wonder?  are there more hunters now?  I dont the tag counts of the past.   but we allways seemed to get them, not so much for elk but deer we allways got the tags,  now I bummed,,  Is it bad luck?  more people in our unit?  or does anyone no if the number of tags have greatly been reduced??  how has your luck been running? some, Ive been talking to didnt think the tag numbers have gone down but I just really dont know. The deer seem to be less then before, So I just was wondering? maybe thats why we arent drawing the tags like before.  which I could understand, to save them.. untill I hear from someone that says the state has'nt cut the tags numbers because they just want the money from the hunters. and that would not helping lower deer numbers if its true,,  does anyone no if they have dropped the tag count to save deer?  Or am I just getting unlucky?  and going to have to hunt blacktail more then I would like too...   lol     ::help1

They have dropped the number

They have dropped the number of tags in a lot of the draw units(eastern oregon) its part of the odfw's mule deer management plan. Units that took 0-1 points now will take 1-2 and so on. I  have been just putting in for points for the past few years and hunting general archery. The unit i hunt over there the tags dropped from 1300 a few years ago to now only 850 tags. its  bum deal but hopefully by limiting the number of tags now will increase our herd numbers  in the future and hunting will be good again.

thanks for the replys,  I didnt get my tags and, havent deer hunted this year but got a nice 5x6 in the high cascade elk hunt. it was there falt i guess   lol   my hunting buddie said they have cut the deer tags by quite a bit, it shows why i havent got tags for acouple times in recent years.  its going to get worce untill the predators are cut down in numbers, so ill just say by to the good old days of the mules, and hunt elk,   thanks
