Many great comments and thoughts on this thread.
For context: I am a member of a CDAC and hunt SE MN.
APR has been accepted and liked by the vast majority of the hunters in the area I hunt. I think APR would work in a few counties in southern and SW Wisconsin, areas similar to where it has been implemented in MN.
One buck per person would be a step forward. Party drives, no opinion. For the meat hunters who tell me they can't feed their families without liberal issuance of tags, this is what I tell them, heard of grocery stores.
I am troubled by how management strategies and opinions are traveling down a road of Public land versus Private land. I think we are selling ourselves short of anything less than a quality product for both types of land.
I see something that has been lost is the happiness/joy of harvesting a deer, whether a doe, spike, or wallhanger. Also, what happened to being happy for the other guy/gal.
