Bow Hunting Help
Next month Iíll be participating in drafting bow hunting policies for a municipality that never allowed hunting before. Since I donít hunt myself and donít know anybody who does, Iím reaching out to folks in various places. One place being the internet. I want to be able to put myself in a bow hunterís shoes and also understand what hunting policies you are up against. Hunting is very foreign to me, so it would help me if you can explain bow hunting to me in regards to:
1) How you bow hunt
2) Bow hunting strategies
3) Mentality of a bow hunter
4) Regulations/Policies you encounter that you like and dislike
5) All the equipment you use
6) The procedures for applying for a permit (describe the process, what you like and didnít like about the process)
7) What kind of policies would you draft or not draft for bow hunting
8) How many people can bow hunt safely per acre
9) Anything else I missed worth mentioning
umm, anyone in the writing mood?? That would take considerable time to put together.
HI Hunting: As HM said, this would take A LOT of answering on the part of one of us, and at the end yes, you would gain some insights as to how to go about installing your program, but in the end you would have a lot of varying personal opinions. My suggestion is for you to contact the village administrator of the town of Mt. Vernon, Illinois. This town lies in the heart of one of the most active deer hunting areas in the state. It is in Jefferson County which is always in the top 3 or 4 counties in the whole state for deer harvest numbers. From what I've been told, they instituted a deer reduction program in(I believe) 2010 in order to deal with a large over abundance of deer within the urban confines of the town. They are issuing special permit archery tags to interested hunters and have designated areas. This is all I know about it, and this was second hand info, so contact the village adm. and see what they have going, at least it would be a good place to start.
