    Want more antlerless deer shot? They didn't need MAPR, it would have been as simple as reducing the cost of antlerless tags 50%.

    DMAPs were 1/2 price last year. Summer CDPs & DCPs were free. See any difference ?

    Just like the $5 tags when the DNR (special interest groups) decided their were too many deer in mid Michigan. As a young ambitious killer I got a lot of bangs for my bucks.

    This paragraph has been included in the last several versions of Michigan's deer management plan:

    "The DNR encourages additional harvest of antlerless deer, especially on private lands, in order to lower deer population levels in some areas. Discounted prices on antlerless licenses, additional antlerless seasons, and educational efforts aimed at increasing antlerless harvest have failed to encourage hunters to harvest enough antlerless deer to keep deer at reasonable levels in some areas of the state. Some landowners are unwilling to require their hunters to harvest antlerless deer and guest hunters often choose to focus harvest efforts on antlered bucks. DNR efforts to engage organizations such as Michigan State University Extension, Farm Bureau, and MUCC to connect farmers seeking reductions in deer with hunters seeking hunting opportunities may be productive. In addition, the effectiveness of deer management tools must be evaluated thoroughly. Current programs may be too voluntary in nature, lacking adequate incentives to change behaviors and to increase the harvest of antlerless deer. It is foreseeable that recreational hunting may no longer be adequate to manage the deer herd in some places in southern Michigan"

    Why would I spend 20 on a doe tag when I could get a eighth?

    If someone only had 20 for a 8th I'd just give them the shet. They got bigger problems then 20 bucks
