In another thread the topic of the percentage of tags being filled was brought up. Do 20%,30% etc. get filled?

So i have a question, and you don't have to be specific with what you killed, just numbers.

What Percentage of the tags you buy, Buck and doe, do you plan on filling or have already filled.

I usually by 5-6 tags a year with the thought of filling 2 to 3. so I plan on Filling 30-60% of the tags I have bought.
Why do I buy the extra ones, I don't know, I just do.

I usally buy the combo tags and 2 doe permits. I always PLAN to fill those 4.

So far i filled my reg buck tag during the 1st week of Nov. with my bow and still have the 4 points or better and the 2 doe tags in my pocket. I usally try to take a deer in early bow, gun, m/l, and late bow. So far my PLAN is already a little off. Im pretty sure ill fill my 2 doe tags , 1 w/ a m/l and 1 w/ a bow and ill do my best out there to fill my restricted buck tag.
My favorite time of the year for deer hunting has just arrived!!;)

I generally buy 2-3 tags (1 combo, 1 doe), and average 1 deer/year.
This year was no different. I took 1 deer and purchased the three tags.

I purchased a combo and 3 doe permits. I still have a restricted buck and 1 doe permit. That puts me at 60% filled.

66% filled 33% to go, that means only one more deer left to hit the freezer.

I purchased a combo and 2 doe permits. One doe permit for public land(crawford county) the other was for private land(clinton county). I still have a restricted buck and 1 doe permit(private). That puts me at 50% filled.

05' 2 out of 3. Two bucks.
04' 3 out of 4. Two Bucks & one doe.

Most years I have one tag left. I usually get 2 or 3 deer a year and eat them all! I give some out to friends and family as well. Now this year if I shoot one more doe I'll stop at 3 for 3.
