Gun/mzzldr hunters (myself included) kill the vast majority of all the deer. We have 40 times the range of a archery equip. I dont know why some are crying. There's too much pressure as it is imo. Look at our trickle rut, nocturnal deer, bad age structure in many parts of the state. I dont see adding to all those negatives improving the hunting experience one bit, but whatever.

I would be all for it as long as I can use handgranades and claymores and my presonal favorite an M60.

The "earn a buck" program would hit the crapper really quick if some here were relegated to hunting where there weren't enough does to shoot 3 a day, everyday. Once again, the herd structure isn't the same all over the state.

But that don't matter for many supposed QDMers... One size fits all.

An all weapons season would be fine with me, but I don't have any problem at all with the way seasons are set right now. I do like our current season layout a lot better than a few years ago with all the shuffling back and forth between muzzleloader and regular gun periods, and the "time outs".

I definitely do NOT like the earn a buck idea, and do not think it is necessary.

I've never witnessed BSK be so wrong about something \:\)

The truth is, everyone wants it set up the way it benefits them most. Gun only hunters want an open season, ML hunters want it combined with archery, and archers want it to stay the same. Wanting to eliminate archery season to extend gun season is selfish as well (even though I understand your argument that it is "more" selfish to want the woods to yourself as a bow hunter).

Personally, I have a lot invested in bow hunting (both time, labor, and mostly money). If there was no dedicated archery season I would never carry a bow into the woods again. Even though I love it and find it the most rewarding, I would not put myself at that disadvantage knowing the woods are full of hunters with guns. Therefore, I must vote to keep the season the same. PS: My opinion is the right one ;\)

I practice QDM on my farm (Allowing bucks to reach an adult age of 2.5 yrs old) QDM and Trophy Management are two different things but sadly are beginning to blend together.

I am completely against any Earn a Buck program. In the area I hunt the deer are nowhere near the biological carrying capacity and my buck to doe ratio is pretty good. Shooting more does than necessary will not benefit the deer herd at all on my place. Also, if I wouldnt have shot a doe during bow season, that would mean I would have had to pass a 4.5 and a 5.5 yr old buck this year. Tell me how that would have benefitted anything!

As someone who lived through "earn a buck" its the worst idea ever. It doesn't even help the reason we're told it was put in place. Finally Wisconsin DNR was forced to end it.
