For those of you who QDM, what are your 2008 harvest goals? How many does do you want to take and when do you want to take them? What are you looking for in a buck and how many are you going to allow? Most importantly, why? What are you baising your goals on?
Great post ranwin33, it sounds like you know your property and your herd very well. Acquiring that much specific knowledge is very difficult.
Did you use cameras on buck trails or do you use some type of attractant to draw them to the camera?
I have a very hard time getting the cameras in front of the bucks.
My goals this year are going to be set depending on my wallet, this thursday will be my last day of work, I going to join the thousands of other unemployed factory workers. The slow economy and high diesel fuel has led to yet another layoff at our plant. With ample time to hunt I plan on waiting for a real good buck, I also plan on taking at least one doe hopefully more depending on funds.
Been awhile since I have been on here, but is nice to see some familiar names still posting.
I have a doe permit for a farm that a friend owns "up north" so I will try to shoot a doe there. I can get a doe permit for the small parcel of land we own hunt down where we live so I may try to shoot one there depending on deer sightings. The two combo tags will be reserved for bucks 2.5 yr plus, and if one or both do not get filled then I can use them to shoot does in the Dec. bow season.
B/c we really only eat two deer per year, may need to donate the extra if I am so lucky to get more than two.
