I waited a while and put some thought into it and finally voted no.
If there is a problem with too many doe then give out more doe permits. I would have happy to have a few for my family and I.
But how frustrating would it be on opening day to have that big buck walk up and you haven't shot a doe yet?
There are simply not enough people even willing to shoot does to make this work. I"m going to say you could give unlimited doe permits and it wouldn't increase the percentage of antlerless harvest as much as you might think.
To me this is a sad commentary on hunting in general. It makes the PETAphile pukes look correct. We are so worried about our opportunities to take trophys we are unwilling to let good management interfere with that goal. I don't mean to be critical of anyone in particular. I don't know for sure whether this is a good idea or a bad one. I just know the response it always gets from hunters everywhere (not just Arkansas) reflects badly on us. So I guess my answer is " if professional biologists say it's good for our deer herd, sign me up".
I've killed at least one doe every year for as long as I can remember (and right now can't remember the last buck I killed in AR) but none of my buddies have killed a single one. I have never felt like any of those seasons were a failure.
Earn a buck was very successful in accomplishing it's goal in Wisconsin. The question is , is it needed here?
