Default Antlerless Deer Tag Poll

I have seen a number of comments on iowawhitetail about low deer numbers in many counties across the state.

Many members feel that deer hunters must manage Iowa’s deer herd since Governor Branstad decided he knew more about managing the deer herd than the DNR did.

So here is the question:

If you purchased an antlerless deer license this year in Iowa are you going to harvest a deer or throw the tag away?

Im hunting a new farm this year and the neighbors don't want to shoot any deer so our group has been asked to do some population control.

I'm going to take atleast 1 Buck and 1 Doe this year (maybe 2 Bucks if I'm lucky).

The poll option I was hoping to see was that "I might buy a couple of antlerless tags" (without statement on filling them). The way the choices are, you either shoot one or it's an all out slaughter.

I agree! I may buy 4-6 doe tags, and I hope to harvest at least 4, my family loves the meat and there is not ANY problem with deer populations in the county I hunt.

Get my does in a management hunt< I will take a minimum of three to earn my city buck tag for next year. Hope to start Sunday depending on family. I bought one for a farm I hunt out of the city but will be in no hurry to fill it. Just depends on how the season goes.

In Iowa, you need to buy a tag for EACH deer you harvest and the tag states what type of deer you can tag (antlered or antlerless). You might want to visit the regulations at: http://www.iowadnr.gov/Hunting/HuntingLicensesLaws.aspx
