Terry.....be honest now. The number of hunters in Alaska is a drop in the bucket at any given time, for a particular species compared to PA's deer season. Alaska has many programs, quotas, and requirements, that could not be implemented in the vast majority of the lower 48.

I just love being chastised after I have apologized....<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I sincerely dreaded going on this forum this morning and reading this thread, but I just had to do it. I guess I am a glutton for punishment.


That sounds like a reasonable idea (Alaska) and at worst the area might only go over the quota by a dozen deer or so. But Ralph brings up a good point....how would the significantly larger number of PA hunters in the significantly smaller area (PA) factor in to such a plan?

Second, there is a significant difference between an archer shooting a deer and having a rifle hunter shooting it before it has a chance to expire and the same scenario but with two rifle hunters.

A bow shot deer requires a loss of blood to die, so, obviously, it is going to take longer (and farther) for it to expire when compared to a rifle shot deer which, in most cases, dies more from shock than actual blood loss. And, if you think that my scenario represents two hunters sitting too close to one another then you are just going to love the pictures that I am going to take on Saturday....<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

I think BT's suggestions for seasons are reasonable.

Terry......&quot;On the Kenai penninsula ( where I lived) each year a set number of Brown bear tags were set aside for excess bears. EVERY killed bear regardless of how it died..car,self protection,etc. was deducted from that number.&quot;......

I understand that. We should, and I believe do take all deer mortallity into the equation now (roadkill, crop damage, hunting, etc). We don't do it as accurately as it &quot;should&quot; be done IMO though. Our figures for the deer harvest alone is a WAG at best.

My remark was toward the concept you were eluding to of &quot;near-real-time&quot; reporting and adjusting of harvest numbers. In PA I think that would be an unrealistic goal. But do we need to addres the concept to begin with?.....sure.
