    How many people do those property owners allow to hunt? I knew a farmer that had a two doe rule. You had to kill 2 does on his ground (with proof) before you could kill a buck. It’s wasn’t for qdm it was for his lively hood. That was an awesome place to hunt come rut.

    I left out the entire point, he would let anyone who asked hunt. Most guys either declined when they heard the rule or hunted until they killed one doe and never came back. This farmer had a lot of does killed and at the same time, allowing this kinda natural selection process of hunters happen. Only the dedicated stuck it out.

    Gonna pull cards, grab my set from across the road, and do a quick spot and stalk in the rain/sleet. Should be back in by lunch.

    Last day of the season, isn't the time to be picky! Let's fill them freezers!!

    Remember the reason for the season.

    That is what I am concerned with, the farmers, not QDM, when you are talking about that many does never being killed. The two neighbors I am talking about are landowners themselves, one only owns 10 acres and whacked 2 young bucks. The other hunts probably 300 combined acres basically to himself, and shot 2 nice bucks 3.5+. He just never shoots does, I don't know why. His property is leased to a farmer too, so I would think he would ask him about it. That area is also one of the highest populations of deer in the state, Northern Clinton Co and Southern Montcalm Co. the last I knew. I can't really force them into shooting does, I just don't understand the logic.

    It is more likely, the LACK of logic. There is no logic in not shooting does when you have a population offset like that. Like you said, why shoot a small buck over a doe? I have never met a buck that tasted better than a doe.

    Some people just don't care though, it all about validation for them. Sad.

    Those snow pics make me jealous. Not one single hunt this year in Van Buren for me with any snow on the ground. Maybe during late season?
