    Piss on archery. One season, all weapons. That's the answer.

    And I'm more interested in maintaining a good bear population than deer, so where does that leave us hunters?

    I know what to expect I moved out of Houghton county for work in the 70s. The ice breaker would come through the Houghton canal Memorial weekend and we still had enough snow on 4th of July to fill our beer coolers. Fawns mortality is high during those years.

    I wouldn't say they're unhappy.
    They just settled because of the availability of older bucks and or the effort required to be consistent.
    Coupled with the mindset of hunting isn't fun without being successful that some have.

    How available do they have to be before guys will stop settling for less?

    I don't know?
    You'd have to ask those guys.

    It doesnt matter what the survey was for, 62.7% is still the defining number.

    If it was 62.7% against APR’s would it matter whether it was 66.7% or 62.7%?

    If the survey was done when you bought your deer license none of the 66.7%-62.7% would matter.

    Or it could just be,
    15% dont care,
    42% Yes,
    43% No!
    Or vise/verses.

    What percentage hunted over bait? I think that would be an interesting statistic.

    If the vote was done at the register, I think you’d get a giant dose of reality! Your right though I don’t think we’d be talking 60%..

    Yup, point of sale survey. 51% majority wins. No excuses from the loser.
    But those ardent APR supporters don't want that. Joe Six Packs will come out of the woods. As it is now they throw their surveys out.
