Default pa doe permit screw ups

In our sat erie paper there was an article on hunters who sent for there doe permit on time to the erie court house getting there permit back rejected.the reason being the court house said it could not handle all the ones they were receiving and had to send them to other court houses and hence the delay and rejection. further more on day one the court house called the game comm. and told them they would not be able to handle the load and the game comm didn't seem to care.now some resident hunters who followed the rules sent on time will not get a doe permit, and to make matters worse will run into a non-resident hunter who will get one because there were doe permits left when non-residents sent in in 1b.depending on which court house they sent to may or may not get one.I went to the 1st meeting here in erie and listened to mr. roe head of the game comm. and he explained the new doe system.after he said you could pick a 1st, sec, and 3rd choice a bell started to ring and it said it is not only for getting a sec or 3rd choice easier it is trying to sell more permits to hunters in areas they don't normally sell out.I asked roe if I only wanted to hunt in 1b what do I do.he said to put down 1b in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice.that is what I did and sent to erie court house so far I have not received one rejected. I then sent one for 1a and I am waiting for it to come.if I would have put 1b for my 1st choice and 1a for my 2nd choice and 1a for my 3rd choice the 1st time guess what I may have gotten a 1a tag instead of the 1b due to the erie court house having to delay and send to another court house.it is alot like the no-fault car insurance when it came out all good drivers were for it untill they found out if someone runs into you too many times not your fault your insurance can go up. another money making racket. sometimes you have to read between the lines.it will be a sad day in pa if a father and son can't even hunt for a doe together because they followed the rules and got burned for it.I hope every one has a good season anyway.

I shot a doe once - it was 1965 and i was 15 years old. Couldn't shoot one after that. Figured I'd leave that up to teenagers and sissy men or women. Well, maybe if they come out with a rock-throwing doe season I might try it. Doe hunting was kinda like electro-shocking a steer in a slaughterhouse, fish in a barrel.

Yep! A 1,5 year old 3 inch spike is SOOOO much more of a challenge. LOL

Hmm... I recall making that assertation the day I filled out my doe application. I made my first and second choice and for the third I wrote REFUND. I received the tag for my first choice and my stepson as well. I have learned along time ago that when things appear to be done to make life easier on us there is always an underlying agenda at work. I was accused as being a conspiracy theorist and looking for something that wasn't there. The Game Commission always puts the deer herd and the hunters first right? Why should I be suspicious about their new doe allocation system????

Yeah, Right On! I have shot many deer and quite a few big bucks.. The hardest deer I have ever taken was a 6 1/2 year old keen nosed doe, and that was by happenstance opportunity. Had I specifically set my sights on her as I do a specific buck I may have never killed her. I enjoy hunting doe just as much as buck, the experience is the same and their shrewdness is relative with age. The only thing a buck has over a doe besides some more meat is antlers.

nothing like hunting the BUCK.once you get into it you will never go back to shooting a doe.

I don't understand.
Don't you guys like deer meat? I thought Pa. limit was 1 buck? I'll go through 3-4 deer a year bucks or does ,makes no difference as long as the freezers full.
