I will definately not shoot a nubbin buck or fawn, and I haven't in the past. The beginning of the season I will probobly wait for at least a six point buck. If I haven't got anything and there is only a couple weeks left of bowhunting,I might take any legal buck. As far as gun hunting up north goes, I will not shoot anything but a buck, and if I am lucky enough to see a single deer opening weekend and it is a legal buck, I won't think twice about shooting it. If I haven't gotten a deer yet bowhunting or opening weekend of gun season, I might take a doe back home. This means that at the most I will get two bucks, but since I am only averaging one deer every couple years, I think I'd be lucky to get one deer.

I don't want this to turn into a debate on how stupid the DNR is, like all the other posts that have to deal with wisconsin hunting.


If you can't see they are stupid- you live in la-la land!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be bow hunting next year, but only because we have good numbers of deer on our property and in the surrounding area, I do feel if our herd numbers were down I would either limit the number and sex of deer taken from our property or close down the hunting entirely until I saw the numbers returning to our management goals.........I don't have a ton of acerage but what I do have I can control regardless of the DNR's idiotic plan to kill them all!

I think those that feel the need to kill deer in areas with low numbers are being very irresponsible to the resource , what will you do when there are none left in your area?

Yea I know what you mean. The Wisconsin DNR sucks! They say that the white-tailed deer are so over populated when 2008 was the worst deer hunting I have ever seen along with everybody else. They are having all of these t-zones when the population is low as its ever been. The lady said that registeres the deer up by me compared to 2007 the deer registered was down 43%!!! But yet there is still all these t-zones? That just crazy to me! Where is the DNR getting these facts? I would just love to know!! Do you just hunt in Wisconsin?

Well seeing that I have hunted hard every year for the last 20 years, Ill admit, that I have seen some pretty crappy season but nothing as bad as the last two years. My father in law said the last two years were the worst hes seen in over 40 years. I have to agree with him. No more than 3-5 years ago it was nothing to drive past our property and count20-40 deer in one field. And the buck to doe ratio was great. Now were excited to 3-10 deer at a time. And most of which are does and yearlings. We do not hunt our property during the HRZ hunts. So this may count as part of why we have so many does. But even at the opening of bow season I have seen several very mature bucks, then as the days go by the sightings dwindledof all deer. Just like they fell off the face of the earth. Nothing has changed on our property, they have great cover, water handy 365 days a year, food sources available just about all year round. Theres no reason the deer should have disapeared. The DNR needs to get their heads out of the butts and see whats really going on and listen the to hunters that are out there. They need to drop all the EAB and Tzone crap and go back to the way it was. Buck or doe with archery and buck only with rifle. If you want an extra tag you have to buy it. And I think they should charge at least $15.00-$20.00 per extran antlerless tag. I know other factors play a part in the low deer numbers such as 2 years of extreme hard winters back to back, but this is getting real old real fast. I may have to lock up all 300 acres and close it for hunting for the next 2-4 years and hunt county land, which Im not about to do. Id hang it up completely if i had to hunt county land for the next 2-4 years. I have prime hunting land and its sad that i cant even hunt it happily anymore.

That is your choice no-one said you couldn't. I know plenty of hunters who feel as you do and they are hunting next year. It is my choice not to hunt next year and waite for deer numbers to come back up.
