Default Maxing out!

How many times do you get the maximum deer each season?

The total number of tags I can get each year varies. Anywhere from 3-6 usually. I almost always get at least 3, once I've gotten 6.

and for your 2nd question...the same ones you have now.

Now that Ohio has urban deer tags ( doe) I could take 7 total deer ,including 1 buck.
I took 2 does and a buck last year .
Don't know what I would do with the extra meat.
As it was I gave over 1 whole deer away last year.
Most I ever took was 5 ,3 in Ohio , 1 in Pa and 1 in Mi.

I could kill 12 a year. This year there may be a 17 deer limit, which a lot of hunters are totally not for, me included. I killed four this year, which is about what I normally do. I try to get one with my bow, a deer with my rifle, then sit out for a good buck. This year I killd an additional one at a family deer hunt at an Island where they're trying to keep the numbers down. My brother killed his first, and since October, with quite a few pounds of venison in the freezer, venison has literally been the only meat we have eaten except for the occasional chicken and hamburger from Wendy's. Keep in mind that the five of us eat atleast one dish with meat every six meals. My personal favoite is steak, baked potato, with garlic bread and a salad. That's doin' it right! It's neck to neck with sliced tenderloin, grits, eggs, and toast for breakfast.

As I have gotton more "mature" in my hunting I am not tagging out. I pass on deer that I used to take. It has been 5 or 6 years since I killed more then 3 deer.
