I'd still rather sit in a stand and see deer I can't shoot, than sit there and see nothing.
This is absolutely true. Iíve hunted East Texas my whole life. There were years we would 1-2 deer ALL YEAR. This morning I let this deer walk because I think MAYBE the neighbors might let him walk as well. It seems that for the most part people are not shooting the first deer they see (used to be the only one youíd get a shot at) and letting deer grow due to the lack of fear of never seeing him again. I like the AR rule.

They, the State, have made us firm believers that unless the deer meets a certain criteria, we are bad property managers for wanting to harvest a less than they deem worthy. I get it.
That is what MLD is for.....you should look into it.

City kids won't hunt unless they have a parent that hunts or has hunted and affords them the opportunity. You go rural areas and you have families that have land or access to land and you have more kids that hunt for sure. Cities are getting bigger, small towns getting smaller.
I think this guy understands it.

Take them hunting AND HAVE FUN!!! &@$% management. Manage to have fun with your kids. You never know how long you got. So enjoy
you aren't the center of the universe man..

You literally said you are on small property.. What if all your small property neighbors did the same thing? What if they all had 3 kids all shooting young bucks?

It absolutely WILL jack your herd up.

Your daughter would have been fine with a doe and my guess is you have an over abundance of them with that mentality.

no one gives a **** about their neighbors anymore. This is why there are high fences going up left and right.
