Nova Scotia Hunters Enjoy Successful Season in 2003

At first the title threw me off - because from talking to people back in NS at Christmas (after the season ended) it didn't sound like many had been succesful. I see from the numbers that most weren't, considering 2002 was a poor harvest also.

Nova Scotia Hunters Enjoy Successful Season in 2003

I didn't get the deer that I was after but did manage to fill the tag but the bucks are getting depleted and the does are running everywhere. I think the doe tags should be increased so the bucks can have a bit of a break. They are being so pressured that they probably don't have a huge chance to breed during the hunting season and besides there can be a million does running around but that isn't much help if there isn't some bucks in the mix to breed them.

As for safety, it has been safer up here because of the buck only season. Hunters have to get closer to game to see if it is a legal deer and are not taking unsafe shots at distant deer.
