I see now what you are up against . Here in ohio there is an outcry for more liberal seasons on deer hunting , by the deer hunters . For years the late primitive weapons season has been between christmas and new years , when most people are not working . This coming season will be the week following new years and be 4 days in the middle of the week . I would like to know the thought process behind this as well . Now it looks like there will be a lot less deer hunters out in the woods and fewer deer harvested . What's wrong with this picture ?
I understand that there is no way to satisfy all groups of people . The hunters want what they see as an opportunity to hunt more and longer .Most of the non-hunting public view animals like deer to be too pretty yo kill , until they ruin a good car or loose a family member to a deer and car accident . More and more the farmers in ohio are looking down their government subsidized noses at the turkey and deer as a great nuisance due to their destruction of crops . Some of these farmers will allow hunting ,,,,,just about anyone that asks . Which sometimes turns into a great problem of overcrowding during season and overhunting .
