If the critters are down, cut the doe tags - all of em. Shooting does is population reduction - say to keep the winter range from being overrun. With the decline of the animals, does should become protected. Such a simple solution.
As for NR's having meltdowns - happens about the same as Rs on some forums.
The whole 90/10 threat - either do it or don't. Just don't drag it out and keep tossing it in our faces. As a NR, we like to plan our hunts, it gives us enjoyment for a year or more - remove that with some BS bonus point thing and steal the ability to plan our hunts a few-5-10 years out - turn it into a win/lose kind of lottery. That hurts more than the not hunting. The loss of the dream or long term plans is a pretty tough pill to swallow.
I don't see anything wrong with late season hunts or applying for tags, even if you openly oppose them. If the deer are gonna die - you might as well be the one pulling the trigger. Just don't get the science behind it, they say the mature bucks have the most prions. What about mature does? Just as old, likely have just as many prions.
At the G&F meeting the other night Lee Knox the biologist stated that in areas where they kill bucks and does and do testing, bucks have CDW at a 2x+ rate as does.
I can't say I like the idea, I do understand they have to try something. But like my old boss is to say, you can try anything once. Hopefully there's something left to try with when they're done.
