That sounds like fun! We are allowed 3 deer but I only take 2. We dont have enough as it is. I dont shoot the 1.5 year olds like everyone one else either. I'll take a big 2.5 but really prefer 3.5 or older. It just takes alot of time and effort to maybe or maybe not get a "decent" buck. I've been pretty fortunate to have my last 3 bucks be 3.5-4.5 year olds. People would laugh at me for that but they wouldnt laugh if they hunted here. Theres a reason theres no hunting shows in new england!I’ve heard that about NH and Massachusetts as well. I’m blessed to live in a state (and area in the state) where deer are plentiful. Heck, as of this writing, I have 23 crop damage tags left! We can only shoot does on crop damage and I only take what I need or can donate. I never fill all those tags. The DNR has a pretty good handle on things here and the herds have been sustained quite nicely. I think they are under a lot of presssure to cull the herds due to a lot of vehicle strikes and property damage so the bag limits are generous. I have my complaints about MD for sure but for me, it’s a Sportsman’s paradise!
