All that shows is a reduction in total population which is good for an area. Show me age class percentages of those bucks harvested in 2009. Mind you, 2009 trended way low state wide as far as overall harvest due to the severe winter previous of that fall.
AR's are not for everyone, I do it by choice, at least I did prior to the state mandate in 452 this year. And the new regs in the TB zone imo are just plain stupid. I have no interest in shooting a spike or fork, but I'm not going to tell the guy hunting on state land what he can and cant shoot.
Voluntary?-Yes........Statewide mandatory?-NO, NEVER, EVER!
