To get an any sex tag was like the Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. That meant that you could shoot a doe if that is all you saw. If you shot a buck then you would tag it with someones buck only tag and then all of you would continue hunting. I can remember out of a family group of 10 or 11 you might only get 8 tags and 6 of those would be bucks only. Back then it was a great season if you harvested a deer ( any deer) so you might only get to use 3 or 4 of those tags but the any sex almost always went on a doe, and the meat was kind of divided up between every one. Now party hunting means a chance to kill multiple bucks if you can get some one to tag them. One big question I have always have had is about possession. The DNR regs say that the deer is considered in the possession of the persons whose tag is on it. How then can another person transport that deer, which is in another hunter's possession? If an out of state hunter kills a buck and has a resident tag it for him, how can the NR transport someone else's buck across many state lines? That doesn't seem right to me!
