Wow this thread has taken off since that last time I logged in. I am somewhat happy that has happened but there are some people on here that think that mine and some subsequent posts were attacking the young girl and her accomplishment. This is not at all what I had intended to happen. I am sorry. I probably should of started a new thread to ask my questions. I just thought it fit in with the story but that was probably a bad example.
What I wanted to know was how many bucks do you think we should be able to take in a season(gun deer)?
I stated that I thought we should take one buck which is what we have tags for here in WI. I do not think we should have to "borrow" other peoples tags. I also stated I am not a fan of party hunting. And here is my observation/ reasoning.
I was out opening weekend of firearms and was listening to my radio while sitting in stand all day. I turned it to scan to see if anyone else from outside our group was having any luck. What I heard made me a bit angry. I heard a man had shot a buck and was calling on the radio for some kid in their group to come tag it for him as he had already shot a buck earlier. He then shot another buck a little while later in the day and had another young hunter in their group come and tag it. All said this individual shot three bucks and two does opening day and had two young hunters come tag his deer. This made me mad. He took away those young hunters buck tags. At that age they should be able to shoot whatever they want to in my opinion. They are just learning to hunt. Why would you take away the experience of shooting their first buck away? To me this showed how greedy some people are. This man should of been the role model the father in the story was and help teach the children how to hunt. Instead he took their tags. I remember my first buck and it was a great experience. Too bad these young hunters wont be able to have theirs this year.
Sorry for rambling but this really bothered me.
Again my congrats go to the girl in the story.
