You have my vote, howhill1![:)]ORIGINAL: howhill1
the first thing this state needs to do is hire a bioligist to head up the dnr instead of one of the governer's friends who just likes helicpter rides. quit allowing beauracrats from chicago who are more concerned with lining they're pockets than managing our resources to make the calls. bring back check stations, hire more officers, do more field work.
I have had the same problem in years past, I'd be hunting the "doe" only season, and have had to pass on really nice 160" class bucks. I still think "doe" only is good for management, but maybe the dnr should allow a point rule on bucks as well, for the added "doe" seasons.ORIGINAL: howhill1
the 2nd season to muzzle loader doe only has my intrigue. i know ive usually filled my archery tags by this time. i would also like to hear a bioligists point of view. i not real fond of the earn a buck. i feel that alot of guys who in fact shoot alot of does would be hampered because some dont. i know as soon as i had to shoot a doe first the first deer im gonna see is gonna be a 200"er LOL. i know alot of guys who will wack a small nubbin or spike in a minute if it qualifies under the 3" limit and many who have. i think the 2 buck limit has helped some. there's so many things to be considered in managing a deer herd the size of illinois's. we need a team of properly trained and educated whitetail bioligists spread across the state.
