There is no intent to make deer hunting "worse" or "reduce" hunter satisfaction, whatever your preferred hunting method....not a one of us on the DMTAG or the FWC staff would spend three years of hard work with that idea or goal. Plainly stated in the foreword of the beginning statement....The goal is to have a "robust resource" and improve "hunter satisfaction".

ok im a little confused. I have a few questions;
Is dmtag a proposed system for gathering infomation on deer populations?
Is the goal of said info to implement a tag system similar to other states (Georgia)?
Is the goal of info change the doe week and/or allow more doe harvest?
Is the goal to allow more quotas on current hunts? and/or new quotas and new public land?
Is it state wide, based on zones a-d or possibly 5 zones, or smaller areas?

Yes....the wackos can sue and slow the process, especially on the 20,000 acres of new federal public land. But the general public is not hunting those lands today as they are private...and in time the suits will be resolved. ( they may not happensince most of this land is already ranched and it cannot be "declared" wilderness or crucial to any endangered species' survival).
So, the end result should be 20,000 acres of new public hunting land managed by the FWC using the WMA template. The stakeholders will continue to meet and carefully watch the progress.....a time period of ten years is expected to get the land and put the Refuge together.

We have lost our "devotion" to state lands conservation protection,public lands hunt legacy,haven't we?
But we still face periodic Legislative attacks on Sovereign lands,certain enviros to our rescue.
Thankfully there is continued progress.
What would we like,a single private person purchasing hundreds of thousands of acres??? Let me know-I'll go to work on it.
