Well, this can always start a good fight, so what's your opinion????
Personally, I don't mind trying to even out the buck/doe population and get a balanced herd. If there are too many doe, open a more liberal doe season.
However, the one thing I don't agree with are AR's. If you live in a state where you can see 8-10 buck a day,. then maybe it's okay to be choosy. However, where I grew up hunting in Vermont, you would shoot the first legal buck that you saw. The first year they instituted AR's, the buck kill went down almost 50%. In my book, that's 50% less happy hunters.
I think it's mostly a ploy by people who want to shoot record book deer for all the glory that comes with them. I would love to shoot a trophy deer, but I am all about the tradition and just getting into the woods, and I am more than happy with a 100 lb spikehorn.
