The "experiment" followed years of previous c.w.d. plan reductions , including free disease tags. I can't speak for the whole area , but reductions (pre greater A.P.R.) were not buck orientated where I hunt. If disease tags were used on bucks , the state has not gone overboard in announcing such. It was reducing doe that created the greater effect. Obvious to those seeing less deer each year. At the c.w.d. meeting , no goal of targeting any specific older deer was mentioned. If the goal of the "experiment" is increased killing of older deer of both sexes , when is the state going to communicate such? Or is prior c.w.d. response still in effect? Or has the state somehow been convinced hunters managing private land here will reduce doe farther than they want to because of a greater A.P.R.? Following yearling majority protection last season , older bucks will be the targeted goal next season. Not doe. Meaning last season should be the highest doe kill following greater A.P.R.. Hunters have trended as older buck orientated prior and through c.w.d.. and A.P.R.. Let the state present contradicting data in time if I'm wrong. I look forward to the data. Preferably since the original c.w.d. response here and through next season. With less doe , less buck fawns are being graduated. If anyone believes older doe will be targeted in greater numbers due to greater A.P.R. in the core zone near me next season , I've some land they can bid generously on.
