I have done some research on FL deer herd management and it's not quite as "straight forward" as in other states. We have nutritional differences, amazing diversity in ruts, large intrusion by development etc.
It makes it quite difficult to say the least.
Having a larger doe harvest in some areas may be a great idea but in others it is not. The state would literally have to micromanage each individual environment almost like they were seperate mini-states. A deer management strategy that would work in the mid-central may not be valid in west central, etc.
With all that being said, I do believe they are working on a major plan (I think I posted the link somewhere's) that they hope to implement that would benefit the health of the herd and hunters (we hope right?).
Now with that being said, I LOVE the idea of setting "point" limits on bucks. I know I have seen them on WMA's I have hunted in FL, but maybe it would be great to have them throughout the state.
Maybe a softer plan, perhaps go to the tag system, first buck (spike or fork allowed), second buck 3 or greater on one side, or something but try to get consistency throughout (but once again, growth rates, reproduction rates, nutrition vary so much in our state, it is a challenge).
We'll just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that the over time they have a successful management plan and the herd will remain healthy and perhaps get a few more buck like we did this past year in FL (we had some nice ones taken)!!
