I have been seriously deer hunting for the past five years. The first three seasons I killed one buck each season. Season before last I killed four does. Last season two does. So my total take in five years was nine deer, three bucks and six does. And all nine went in to the freezer. The last two seasons I let a lot of deer walk. The owner of the land I hunt doesn't want any bucks less than six point killed. The last three weeks of last season I was hunting specifically for a nice eight point that I got on my game camera. I never got a shot at him.
The bow season opens here on October 15, the gun season in mid November. They both run through January. The limit is two a day, one of which can be a buck. So I could legally kill about 210 deer a season if I killed the limit every day. (Don't worry, I don't get to hunt every day, still have to make a living!) There is a three buck season limit. They are obviously trying to get people to kill more does.
We don't have to fool with tags or checking deer when we kill them. All we have to do is add big game to the hunting license when we buy it. It bumps the cost up from $16 to $24.
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
