    36 does for 3 years! This looks like industrial hunting to me. What's the population there that it's allowed to kill so many?

    My son and I are going out to pick up the blind and tree-stand today. I suppose we could start shoot coyotes to say we shot something this year, and maybe that would make us feel better.

    In BC, we're pretty lucky too. Region 8 will close on Monday (both sex) and there are a couple of islands that are open until xmas and the other until mid-Junuary. Bow Only, both sex up to 3 deer.

    I'm brand new to archery and first time deer hunting next Monday. White tail only where I'm going. On the islands I was mentioning, black tail is the game.

    I realy would if i had too

    I did know some guys that hunted pigs with knifes... was way younger then still was smart enough not to try that thou..
    I will shoot at a cat with what ever i hapen to have...Gladly I am a big man and they fear me.. Sure hope i do not look like a easy meal .. .357 on my hip .. tips things even more to my side
    I did have bow in hand this past september when my son spoted a cat just above our camp..lucky cat was fast enough that the son did not get the 25.06 onit..( bear hunting). I never got to see it Im just the one that heard it. hate to think it was headed for the boy 50yrd down below me..would have had to cross a road and MY path.. as hutch jokingly said it.. Any Dad would.. mom ,brother,sister & friend for that matter
    They dont run dogs on them any more so cats are doing well. Tags are plentiful and cheep... Our law officers will say shoot on sight then tag it..

    Our archery season here in KS runs from Sept. 20th through Dec. 31st. Gun season is Dec.1-13 I believe. Gotta wear orange to bow hunt during rifle season. That long of a season, and not many guys are tagging out on decent bucks. I think it's just a stange year for bucks this year. The doe harvest is as good as ever, I think bow hunters can take 4 does a year, but bucks are either more elusive, or fewer this year. I saw more bucks than usual, but all of them were little forks, or 6 points. Brother and dad rifle hunting only saw one possible shooter buck. Neither harvested a buck. Let's all hope next year is better. lol
