Liberal Deer Season

Postby retiredsailor » Sat Oct 08, 2011 11:20 am

With the September bow and black powder seasons for anterless deer, and the various other
increased hunting opportunities for West Virginia, I'm wondering how the average deer hunter
feels about these increasingly liberal seasons. Will the overall annual harvest continue to decline as
a result of taking so many does? Will we start seeing larger, more mature bucks when
we get the doe-to-buck ratio down to something close to one-to-one. Invite comments and
opinions here.
It isn't what happens to us, it is how we deal with it, that matters most.

I do not know much about the WV deer heard or regulations, but if they are trying to decrease the number of does, you will probably start to see a healthier deer population as a whole. labeling larger and more mature bucks is hard, but you should most likely see healthier bucks because of more resources to go around for the standing population.
