earn a buck gone in Wisconsin !

Unread postby dreaming bucks » Fri May 06, 2011 12:06 am

Has anybody else heard this ? I have now heard it on the radio and supposively it's in the Wisconsin outdoors paper... We will have a choice to shoot doe or buck for our first deer, archery or gun season, doesn't matter, first deer you have a choice of what to shoot. Then if you want to shoot another buck, you have to earn that one. I guess here in the CWD zone, they give away the doe tags, but everywhere else you have to pay for them, or at least that's the way I take it anyway....

I still can't believe I actually get a choice of what to shoot first.... I never thought I would see that again in the CWD zone. Maybe things are looking up a little bit in Wisconsin ? I hear there is still a youth hunt, and a doe season in October though.... But I'm guessing they're won't be so many people hunting that doe season, if we don't have to earn our first buck.

Sounds like a good deal!

I see this as good and bad. Good for obvious reasons- no EAB. Bad b/c it took polititions to do it. We need to have politics out of the decision making regarding our natural resources. I don't trust 'em. I have to wonder if the senators who wrote the bill were trying to earn votes. I know this won't be a popular stance but it's what I believe.

We still have EAB in the CWD area... YES we have now the ability to shoot the 1st buck without killing a doe, but greed for more buck tags will still be killing to many does.

I honestly do not see the greed factor where I hunt, which I am very glad... For the most part, most people are happy with shooting one buck. Now that might mean one buck during bow season, and one during gun hunting, which I really don't like, I wish it was only one buck per year no matter how you get it, archery or gun..

I really think a lot of people in the past have hunted that early doe hunt just to get a buck tag.... but now that you can shoot a buck for your first deer, I don't think there will be the same amount of people hunting that early doe hunt..... Of course I am talking about private land , I guess I'm not sure about public hunting, I suspect that there will still be a pretty good amount of hunters there....

Good riddin's... In Wisconsin Outdoor News there is some grumbling about the deer bill, SB 75, and it becoming "law", but I say, bring it on. Lets get back to traditional Wisconsin deer hunts! I don't hunt in the CWD zone, but still feel for the people that do. Hopefully they will come to their senses there too.
