How Many is to many

Well I just got back from Nebraska and there we have to shoot 150 does in 2 weeks.
In an area that should only have 30 deer we have over 300. If your shootin deer with tags u got from the state though i would say no your not killing to many deer.

I think everyone should consider what deer they are taking and not just how many. If u shoot alot of young bucks, u will not see any trophys in the future. Think long term and take only what u need.

I think alot of it depends on where you hunt and what the quality of deer are in the area. Where we hunt, there are always a couple of nice mature bucks taken. Unfortunately, the land around here is all heavily hunted come shotgun season, so, if you let a young buck walk (which may actually be the only buck you see all season in MA) somebody else will definatly shoot it. I let a 3 pointer and a small 5 go this season when i only had a doe to my name and they were both shot the following week by guys who had already taken several deer in abbutting states. So, I am now in the mindset that If I don't take them, someone else will.
