I don't see any harm in liberalizing the numbers. If you're shooting only Toms- you aren't really affecting the population-- assuming at least one gets away.

I think there will be so many people out there with tags this year.
There will be alot of over crowding, like the opening of the general rifle deer.

Alot of the B and M'ing people that have not drew a tag in the previous years will get their anwser this year. :shock:

What's with the Southern Region having 1,802 permits , as well as the Central Region having 748, and the Northern Region 614 permits. I didn't realize we had that many tom's?

Im not sure what to think about the increased tags. Its a good thing of course. Im just a little worried that after 6 years of waiting the area I wanted to hunt is going to be pretty crowded. If anyone has any suggestions on a good area with few tags PM me please! I dont want to waste these points! :D

I am not worried, my buddy drew last year and we never saw another hunter. We were in the 'secret' spot though. :D

No need to worry (at least if I understand the new regs correctly.)

The "Limited Entry" units seem to be pretty much the same, so as long as you put in for that and not the new "extended late season" you will have no more competition than before.

Good luck,
