Good idea!I’ll head north to fill my freezer
I could shoot a doe every day and not notice a decline but I like watching them more than shooting them.Good idea!
There's places in the U.P. where doe are like sacred cattle , regardless of numbers...Or of winter severity making it unsuitable habitat for growing the herd.
Must be hundreds of deer per square mile when several can be seen during a hunt on a small part of a section.(!) l.o.l..
The sooner all or most of the deer are eliminated, the better!I think it's time to throw out the current NRC and put some people in that truly want our deer population to be around for our children ! There's got to be some wildlife biologists still in our DNR that know how to manage our deer herd for a healthy future ! I'm tired of all these ridiculous new annihilation rules of our deer herd. 12 does per hunter ? They've lost their minds !
Published Wildlife Conservation Orders have not been updated for any 2020 changes. Last update 12/16/19. Working from home, Covid19 infections, hiring freezes and Fridays off have taken its toll. We still have not seen the 2019 Deer Harvest Survey Report. Heck the NRC still hasn’t even published Thursdays meeting agenda yet.Does anyone know when the new hunting digest comes out? Seems like its later every year. It would be great to get clarification on these drastic changes.
It’s there now.Published Wildlife Conservation Orders have not been updated for any 2020 changes. Last update 12/16/19.

Only an incomplete draft when I checked earlier. Your link shows the same one.
Funny to me that more than one person ive started on hunting has gotten survey's. My die hard crew and me have never received one. I fill them out online still but that data can be very very off from what i see. I know off 2 farms that alone were a few hundred with blocks and unlimeted that never went counted by survey for 2 years straight. Years i was in double digits with unlimited so were many friends and while this was prior to ehd none of us were every surveyed. 100% of people i talk to on a weekley basis had more than 3 doe tags last year yet none were surveyed. Just odd.
