Pretty disappointing listening to that round of comments by the commission. I've had a few conversations with that Bio, Brian, and he's really knowledgeable on the eastern plains.Eastern Plains Deer Season stays Status Quo
While they acknowledged the change would promote more mature deer long term, public support for the status quo was very high, CWD occurs more in mature mule deer, buck/doe ratios are already high and populations are already above objective.
I wish this nugget of information had been publicized before the commission moved some rifle seasons to later dates. Some hunters can’t seem to wrap there heads around the reality that increased success due to later hunt dates is going to result in a corresponding decrease in tags.Change in rifle season dates - Expect significant changes to tags quotas come next April.
