I hunt prime deer habitat, woods, farms, with all kinds of feed, hundreds of acres and lucky to see a couple deer. Now you tell me thats right. I could kill a deer every year, buck or doe, but, have to put in alot of vacation time to do it. Hopefully some kid will get a chance at a small buck or doe i pass up, and i refuse to shoot a doe. Doe are for kids, i feel bad for those fathers who want there children to hunt with them but wont because they go and dont see anything. Next year i'll buy just regular license because i hunt coyotes all over the state, if i kill a deer with my bow i'll buy a tag same with bear. I live in union co. and the deer hunting here stinks.
i hope i misread your post.. the way im reading it is if you kill a deer with a bow, then you will buy your tag?
PA is right on with the way they are managing the deer herd. You may have to hunt a little harder than years past, and no you are not going to see deer everywhere and everytime you go into the woods, but the herd is healthier as a whole. PA needed this in the worst way. They may have taken it a little far in some areas to start, but they are adjusting accordingly.
