Eat what you kill, or give it to those who will. As far as to much, It depends on the herd and how many deer need to be culed for a healthy herd. But from what you discribed, it sounds like what lead to bag limits in the first place.

IL. archery season you kill as many as you are willing to buy tags for, only 2 bucks though. I have killed around 20 in a year (there is a Children's Home who will accept them as a donation) but frankly anymore I'm too lazy to kill that many. Field Dressing them, dragging them out, etc., etc. If it's illegal where they are doing it then naturally it's wrong. Otherwise more power to them

Well, unless they are killing 28 does and only 3 bucks they are not following the rules. Sooo, you can use your own imagination on that one. Yes we have an abudance of deer here were I live, Im just saying that for me , that 30 deer is too much. So what Im getting from you guys is, as long as it's legal, it's ok to kill that many? If so, fine, just wanted to know what you guys thought, Im outnumbered here, but I won't get upset, or change myt opinion even if it is legal. I think that these two guys have a major ego problem and it makes them feel more like a man to kill that many deer.

Then I fail to see why you are complaining to us about them. You say that they are killing too many deer, illegally, but you won't turn them in "because they have been caught before".

I enjoy "hunting deer" not just killing deer. I like finding out where they spend their time what families they belong to and how they interact with other deer moving in and out of their territories etc... I couldn't kill that many deer in a season even if was 100% legal. I don't get that big of a thrill out of the actual act of killing. I go out to take my deer but even if I was supplying the meat to the needy I'd have to take them out and show them how to do it rather than keep killing deer. Like I said, I'm not that thrilled with the act of killing and once you cross the line of supplying your own family your just killing. It's not like it's that hard to just kill a deer even here in PA where everybodys whining there aren't deer to kill.
