I think I hunt 4A (Bedford/Everett) and the area I hunt could use a few more doe taken out, but it's not the states fault so I can't weigh in. My buddies property has bear, deer, coyote, and turkey a plentiful.

So far so good. To this point we're OK. Most or the HR was warrantedbut it would appear that some areas now need to be re-evaluated.

I think we have the upper hand on the herd and could accomplish anything we want to do at this point. I don't think we should reduce the herd any further, though.

I feel the smaller SGL's in the populated areas are overhunted and overharvested. Also feel they will need seperate private and public land antlerless permits to correct this problem.

If private land has too many deer, you can apply for DMAP, if it has too few deer you can control what numbers get harvested. Our PGC has no control over their SGL, which to me is very sad. Take those four WMU's that they reduced five days of antlerless hunting, why didn't they just reduce those days on their own SGL's in those areas?

The same things goes for buck hunting. If some hunters want to hunt for tropy bucks, why don't they make certain game lands four to the side in the three point area and five to a side in the four area. Our fish commission has special arrangements for streams, why not do the same for hunting on SGL's? Here in Lehigh County we have a few different County properties Archery hunting only, why can't some of the SGL's be managed differently than others?

Mostwmu's including those with mostly private land have been reduced alot. Barring a couple ofoddball pockets here or there, there aint nearly the deer that there should be.

JUST CUT THE TAGS FOR CRY'IN OUT LOUD!

I feel bad for public land hunters even though they were the ones that shot too many deer. Those that own private land....that's their own stupidity, they will get no pitty from me.

Have the concerned hunters done anything as simple as posting up some poster board signs right before rifle season asking the yahoo's to not kill every doe they see? If the state won't help use peer pressure and greass roots measures.
