Do you think some hunters kill more deer than they really need?

I only ask because some guys that I work with hunt both Pa and NY, in total a few of them can get 9 deer....

Is this excessive?

I think when the wildlife biologist set the limits they know that only a very small percentage of hunters will obtain the limit. They look at the herd size and othere factors to make their decisions. Many of the southern states have longer seasons and more liberal bag limits and we still have an overpopulation in many areas.

I agree with timbercruiser,

In IL we are allowed 2 racked deer.And unlimited does,till the quota is fill for each county.Our bow tags may be used in any part of the state.

The report for last year was not nearly the does were harvested as was expected.I wouldnt be surprised if they were to drop the bag limit to one buck next year if it happens again this year.In hopes we hunters start taking more does.

It's not how big the Deer,But the size of the experiance that matters!!

In overpopulated areas I don't have a problem with it. But in places that arn't why would you shoot more deer than you need.

Actually most hunter's don't NEED any venison, if it's legal and thought out by people who set game limit's , then it's nobody's business what anyone take's , usahunter

As long as it's not wasted, I don't care how many deer people harvest LEGALLY.

As long as it's legal, I do think some take more than they need and end up throwing it away because it got freezer burnt, I say take what you will use and if a guy want's to keep on hunting great there are good program's out there like hunter's feed the hungry...good luck

Yes they do, but it of course is not effecting the population.

I know people who by tags for there wives and the wives don't go out.

Last year my friends group shot more deer than needed. I told him I would take a deer if they were not all claimed. He told my brother in law to take the extra deer and give it to me. He kept it for his family and I went without venison last year. My brother in law had five deer for his family whichj of course includes my sister

In Va. we can kill 3 buck and over 100 doe if you are willing to pay for bonus doe permits. I will fill my freezer and then donate any others to Hunters For the Hungry. As long as the meat is not wasted and it is legal I see nothing wrong with taking all you can.
