I attended the IBA annual meeting and banquet this past weekend. I was not able to attend the WHOLE presentation by Dr Mitchell but what I did get was this. We had a RECORD HARVEST, "KILL" for 2005 it was 125,500+. Of that 73,000 plus were anterless and 52,000 were antlered. The antlered buck harvest decreased 4%, while the antlerless harvest was up...... I also heard Dr Mitchell say that the age structure had moved since OBR but they were "not sure" of the cause............... Guess this kills the opponents assertion that the biologist said it would not make a difference, now they aint sure........ Also Dr Mitchell stated a survey would go out to "deer hunters" and be a part of the equation. Unless CutNSoot can get his list used....... Slam Dunk! This just keeps getting better!!! On Friday of the DEER & Turkey Expo I overheard a IDNR official state, "you guys have Dr Mitchell wrong on his opposition to the OBR"............ The five years given may have been enough, now to extend it...... Fellas, there is no such thing as a pemanent rule, but if you extend this one say 10 years........... Permanent rule would allow a change in two years...... go the ten!!!
