OUCH!!!

Glad I have preference points. I actually wanted to hunt deer pretty hard this fall. Might just have to buy my points and keep duck hunting.

this doesn't surprise me at all. I am not a deer hunter but I didn't see near as many deer as I usually would last fall. In fact I can count on one hand how many deer encounters I had upland hunting last year and that was all over the state.

I did as well. Thankfully, I bought a bow a few months ago. I too will probably just purchase a preference point this year instead of applying for a rifle tag.

I guess I did not pay enough attention to the deer population driving around this fall/winter. Did not realize the population was down enough to warrant a 40% drop in tag numbers this fall. Seems to be enough hit along the roads, but that is an extremely small sample size.

I'm hoping this won't affect archery tags.

Not surprised at all. Extreme habitat loss over the last 5 years along with disease in portions of the state. Whitetails are pushing out mule deer in central and western SD as whitetails follow the expansion of fall crops like CORN.

I hope they actually start drawing for archery mule deer tags in central SD. Way too many people along the counties near the Missouri

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
