I think it's the exact opposite. You get one. Peeps that get one are no longer hunting. Less "competition". Private land owners may be more inclined to let others hunt because they have less tags. No one on public is hunting a 2nd buck. More opportunities for others.Restricting buck tag opportunity even more will increase the feeling of urgency in people to make sure they solidify their own locked down private ground.
I've got TROPHY BUCK fever from the huntin shows I've watched.
I'm only allowed one buck tag, so on only one chance annually to bag me a big-un. Better make my time and $ count!
Too much competition on public ground.
Can't gain access to any private ground without renting or buying my own.
Better lock down my own private ground and keep everyone else out, so I can farm TROPHY BUCKS for myself. (Only adding to the problem.)
Don't make enough $ to rent or buy my own ground, so screw this hunting stuff anyway. (Discouraging people from getting into hunting, or continuing to hunt.)
It's just another thing to feed the juggernaut that Iowa deer hunting has become.
