Hello guys....my first post. I hunt in North Central Wisconsin where the herd now supposedly is moving towards goal( I honestly think we were at goal several years ago and now we are well below goal in most areas, especially north central and east)......If we have lower numbers to look forward to we now have a herd which is much smaller and overall quality(buck size) is the usual yawner.......especially when compared with other states......I am personally ready to hunt in other states........Anyway, I believe that with enough support(a big question) we are ready for STATEWIDE QDM......The DNR probably will not want it, it will totally screw up their SAK, but who cares.......think about where the truly great hunting is in this state.....It is in areas where landowners have taken matters into their own hands and have gotten used to PASSING up small bucks, the QDM way.......The first couple of years would be tough as shooter bucks would be uncommon, but after that second or third year.....LOOK OUT! Guys will not need to go to Kansas or Iowa anymore.......this state is totally capable of producing the same quality and numbers of big deer that exist in those states.......We could still have youth hunts where kids could shoot small bucks if they want to try to keep everyone happy...........
Deer hunting is so much better in other states(Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North and South Dakota)........Why?.......I know the hunting pressure is less overall in those states, but the overall thought process on what they shoot is totally different too! We can do it!!
The fact remains if we shoot does our kids will not see any deer' will not hunt, and I don't blame them. I don't care if I need a "sticker". The DNR can shove the sticker. I will not shoot a doe even if it is shoot a doe to save your life. SDLF. I would rather quit in hopes my grandchildren don't have to see deer in a zoo.
