This post may close soon, I had wanted to post this on a different thread... I’ve had the privilege of living in IN, FL,TN and OR and now am back to my home state of IN. I know the demographics, populations (humans and wildlife), terrain and habitat are so vastly different in all of them. Even by state, northern IN is very different than southern IN, western TN seems like a different state than eastern TN…how one hunts or fishes in the state of OR depends entirely on which direction they drove the last two hours….huge differences folks. With that said, its very hard to determine regulations that would blanket an entire state let alone allow us to make similarities State to State that are anything more than vague comparisons at best. Just look at how the number of bonus does changes county by county in IN… My point is that we need sound judgment to maintain and manage quality wildlife numbers in the state for hunters and non-hunters alike. I believe that the OBR is an important and effective tool to suit that purpose, and frankly can not understand the concept of those who would focus their energy to harvest multiple bucks when so many does out there for the taking. (in my mind, just as challenging to harvest) By bringing some balance to the heard…arriving closer to the 50:50 ratio, I believe many of the techniques such as calling, rattling and the like would become more effective (more competition in the heard). You want meat…kill some does…you want to challenge yourselves hunting…OBR certainly adds challenge…target the bucks you truly desire as opposed to dropping one that just walks into range.
