Outdoors, I know of lots who are filling them out. I don’t think it will make too big of a difference because its all about the $, but I hope im wrong…....

I filled mine out and while doing so I played a game of make believe that the state would actually take all of my suggestions and make them happen!  The make believe game made filling this survey very exciting!  And then I snapped back to reality and realized our deer herd has been mismanaged for so many years, there is no reason to believe its going to be turned around.  That being said, it is the job of the hunters to properly manage the deer herd and not follow the states lead of filling such a large amount of tags.  Can we do a late season antlerless only boycott on here?  Please?  How about we all agree to take less doe than we typically do?
