Just a thought from my experience...MANY hunters do not think about things the way you do here. If there are tags available, they will buy them and use them, giving no thought to whether or not the population is good or bad. People like yourself, and many others here on IW, including myself, that take care to "balance" things out are in the minority...at least in my opinion. So...we need the DNR to also "get it" when there are big die offs in an area and then reduce the doe tags accordingly. IMO, you will never be able to count on the hunters managing themselves on a wide scale.
