It's legal, ok, I get that, but, why on Earth would somebody need to shoot 15 deer let alone 4 or more?

IMO, after a couple. it becomes more of just shooting them versus hunting them.

We eat 4-5 a year. Usually one is made into sausage (except the back straps of course). Luke in recent years has killed 2-3 and me 1-2. Not killed from the same area though. I put in for as many hunts as I can with the draws.

I can't imagine killing 15 deer either, but what would you say should be the limit on a statewide basis?

Exactly. We have four in the freezer and they'll be gone before next deer season. We could probably kill double that and still not have much left after a year. I still consider myself hunting them even after that many in the freezer. Just because a couple is good for you doesn't mean that should be the rule for all.

I'm not trying to tell anybody how they should hunt nor would I ever do so, and if you and your family consume every deer you harvest, then that is outstanding.

To answer your question jjas. My personal view is four deer per hunter is a God's plenty (even though I would never shoot that many). I prefer to shoot deer that are big enough that all I need is one deer to satisfy my needs.

My comment had more to do with a guy I use to work with who two years ago him and his family went out and shot 8+ deer and wasted all of it by getting summer sausage made out of it. Then this past fall I ran into him at Rural King and asked him how his season was going and listened to him b**** and moan because they only managed to kill a couple. He was too stupid realize that he and his family killed everything off the season before.

While I understand your frustration with situations like you described above, according to the new harvest report less than 1% of deer hunters in the state take more than 4 deer.

I'm sure it would be tough to break down the report when it comes to hunters taking multiples of deer, but it would be nice to know the circumstances in some of these high number yearly harvests.

Are these hunters buying those licenses and hunting multiple counties? Are many of them landowners who feel they have too many deer on their property (or properties) and thinning them out during the season?

I'm definitely curious.
