It's common here in MO as well. I know of several large hunting parties that "pool" their tags and everyone shoots till they are gone. I don't condone it, but kind of "turn my back" to it.....Right or wrong....

There's some OBVIOUS dangers there. First, what if an agent comes along.....You have no tag, but you're hunting....Uh oh.....Second, what if a party has 10 tags, and they end up w/ 12 deer?? Uh oh......

Happens in WV alot too, people not checking in game is more common though.

I'll have to admit that I have had my wife check one in for me one year. Before you yell though let me clarify. WV is allowed 3 w/bow 1 with license and 2 if you buy xtra stamps.I usuallyhunt on own land, and use landowner privilege,the first deer takes away the license. There was a possibility that I would be hunting on a friends property and would be unable to use landowner privilege, so I had my wife check it in, in case I went and hunted on the friends land. Ended up not hunting on the land though. I don't see thisas wrong as what is happening in your area since I wasn't going to go over my allowed bag limit which is what is happening in your case.

i agree with you chucker34 but i disagree kinda i do not pratice this as i have not got a deer in my first four years of hunt nor do i plan to i am alowed four deer here in IN and if i get four i will be more then happy but i think this crap of 1 deer a year or even two is stupid. I could see if someone hunted to feed his or hers family doing this but i hunt for fn not just to eat And it is illegal and i would say the law looks at it like boutching. But if it came down to my family eatting i would think it over but if i had to think it over i would not realy care as to have soemone eles have a tag to fill it under. If my family was going hungery.
Butif you do this just to get more deer there catch you at it here the person has to check there deer in i am not sure you could get away with it

but in ky you just call it in

It happens in Texas but not as much as other states I would imagine. We have a pretty large bag limit so it isn't much of a problem. I'm not saying it doesn't happen because it does, butI don'tagree withit.

I don't if this is the reason why NY did it or not, but each hunter can have up 2 DMP permits transfered to them. I kind of like this move by NY. I am a meat hunter, while some of my friends don't shoot doe's. So I just have them transfer there tag's to me.

It isn't just hunting laws. Those people are all over the place, in every walk of life. All we can to is teach our kids the right path and hope to weed the others out over time.

I've heard of it hear in IN as well, and the sad thing is, the county I hunt, the limit can be as many as 8 (it's listed as an urban co.). I believe you have to trust the DNR that they're doing the right thing and follow the law, bc it will only pay off in the future. I'd much rather take on deer a year, than risk bagging a couple in the names of other people and losing my license for a while. Not only it's breaking the law, but people are also going totally against what may need to be done for the local population to help restore it.
