What are we trying to accomplish in Zone 4???

2 posts in this topic

Now I dont want to start a big fight about quality deer management or anything but just want some insight here. Really though, what is the DNR's goal for the deer herd in Zone 4(specifically 277). First off, why were there so few doe tags handed out??? Is the population so low we cant take some does out??? Myself and most others I talked to seen plenty of does and fawns running around out there. Therefor every 1 1/2 buck has a bounty on it for 9 days.... I was at a few registration stations last weekend and both of them figured they registered bucks 75% of the time. So I guess i'm just wondering what were aiming for???? Thanks

I think that the DNR is managing for population in zone 4. There will be 75% buck registration when only 25% of the hunters get a doe tag. you also have to remember that zone 4 is huge, basically all of Mn except SEMN. You might be better off dicussing what area you are in . I think some areas in zone 4 do not have the deer population that you are describing.
