In New York and Pennslyvania we are paying for years of over harvest with doe permits. I stopped hunting PA for lack of deer sightings.
Forest County where we hunted after spending $80,000 for a place as a group of non-residents the population declined dramatically.
I also hunt in Forest County - deer population is much better now than in 2006 and i have gotten a 'good" buck each of the past 3 seasons and my dad got a nice eight pointer in 2007, that is four quality bucks since the APR's...
also everyone just wanted to see a lot of deer...i would rather see quality deer, before APR's and an increase of doe harvests you might see a buck but was not more than a spike...
In most states does harvest limits are a lot more liberal than PA, yet hunters seem to be satisfied...don't get why PA thinks that the longtime miss managment of the deer herd is OK....
For starters why are people talking about PA in the Missouri forum? Now on with it.
