Got a bonus season doe this evening. Took the 30-06 today, and had 5 does come down a creek line. Picked out the biggest, and hammered a 106 pounder. ;D I apologize for the ugly picture, but It was late by the time I got home
Thats the way it is with me. Being on the DMAP we have our own check station, and have to check and weigh our own deer. We have to remove and save a jaw from the does. Its an honor system, but when you have that many tags, why would anybody even thing about cheating on it. ??? ???
I went to the Wildlife expo, and went to the deer aging booth where they had a hundred or so jaws that were already aged and had tags attached, but when I used the same criteria to age them that they had on the literature, I got several different discrepencies from what they said. To brag on the Wildlife department rep in the booth, he also looked at them and agreed. Told me that some of the biologist trainees(college students) had probably just made a mistake.
On another note, that Wildlife Expo is a great place to take your kids, or just go by yourself. I usually go by myself.
