Shot a genetically inferior 2 year old Whitetail on the Sept. 17th opener. It was a 14 inch spike on each side, the points curve inward and are less than 1/4 inch from touching one another. I actually decided to take this deer with very little thought behind it. I hunt in an area where no one but myself practices Quality Deer Management (QDM), and each time I pass up a little scrubber, I see it hanging on someone's meatpole come gun season, so that's why I decided to take him. I'm going to do a European mount on him, because he is so unusual. In Wisconsin we have a potential problem with Cronic Wasting Disease (CWD), and the Wisconsin DNR set forth some unbelievably liberal rules on harvesting deer in my perticular unit. I can shoot an endless supply of bucks and does until Oct. 26th. Then after that date, we need to harvest a doe before we harvest a buck, but again we can shoot as many as we want. CWD doesn't scare me. We have never had a positively tested deer in this unit, but they still want us to eradicate the herd entirely. Does anyone else deal with CWD? I hate to say it, but southern Wisconsin's deer hunting traditions have definately changed as we know it. Right now we can be deer Gluttons, but in the very near future we'll be talking about the "good ol' days"! Some of our deer seasons last from Sept. 17 to March with people able to use guns from Oct. 26 til the close in March. Some people are actually embracing the idea of harvesting as many deer as possible. A friend of mine lives next door to a fella that harvested 17 deer off his 13 acre parcel last year. Are there alot of deer in his area? Yes, but that doesn't mean that we need to become "game hogs". I hope this situation never happens to any of you people.
