I stopped watching that a few years back. They mostly beat a dead horse over and over and over, and the only thing they mention is mostly about the CWD. In my honest opinion, I'm sick and tired of hearing the DNR make excuses for why they fail at life. Zones weren't supposed to be Earn a Buck if the zone had a 2-1 doe to buck harvest during our "2 year trial" period. What a load of crap that was. My zone was close to a 3-1 doe to buck ratio over this period. Yet, we are still earn a buck. I guess I don't have a problem with this whole earn a buck thing since I harvest my share of does, and so does everyone else around me. Also, I don't have a problem with it because I haven't had a mature buck, or record buck for that matter walk by me without having a tag to be able to harvest it like so many people have. What I do have a problem with this October T-Zone in my area, as I'm sure most people in WI have. Keep in mind DNR, having this hunt, that a few people take part in sends the deer into a Nocturnal pattern too early in the year. My deer sightings were pretty much negative after this season every time.
I wish they would do some sort of ratio of number of deer harvested (buck to doe ratio) after the T-Zone hunt, up to the opener of gun season and compare it to the total harvests when the October T-Zone wasn't in place. Then I think some people might be a little more open to this craziness that sends the deer nocturnal if they gave me actual proof that the deer population was going down. Sending the deer nocturnal that early and giving them a chance to find a really good bedding spot makes it hard for the actual gun season.
So in conclusion, I gave up on watching that show a couple years back, because all it does is frustrate me even more, because it's basically a way for the DNR to use propaganda.
I wanted to know, is that thing live? I think it's taped and aired...right? I would have more respect for it probably if it was live.
