For all of you concerned about the number of deer harvested during the firearms portion look at these numbers, that's assuming my math is correct.

2008 regular firearms + antlerless season = 215,715
2009 regular firearms + antlerless season = 215,217

:thinking:

That is what I have been thinking this whole time.

Thank goodness for the horrible weather and all the standing corn, or we wouldn't have had a deer herd to hunt next season :whistle:

Everyone seemed to freak out because numbers were so low. I think it was a matter of people holding out on does during regular firearms because they had 2 solid weeks to chase them afterwards!

That is EXACTLY what I said 2 weeks ago. I talked to way to many people that told me they purposely passed on does during the regular firearms season because they would have PLENTY of time to harvest does after the regular firearms season.

The way I look at it, we have nearly four weeks of gun season in Missouri. The first 10 days are for bucks, the remainder are for does. If the majority of the people aren't using this frame of thought yet, they will be soon because it's going to catch on quick. Our season will become a 10 day buck season and a 12 day doe season.

:cheers: That is some interesting information Whit. Thanks for bringing that up.

So, I'm guessing the doe season count is up quite a bit? Where are you getting your stats? Off of that telecheck update link?

BTW.... Last year's antlerless number: 15,036

So, it's up nearly 50%:thinking:

Another 500 or so deer, and the archery kill will beat last years record total of 44,434...... The old days of saying the Archery harvest is not that big of an impact on the overall harvest level seem to be over....:thinking:

Really it's up 32% :peepwall: which is still a considerable increase.

:cheers:[/rquote]

I came up with last years total only being 67.97% of this years total.:wave::shrug:

DANG...you quoted me as I was deleting my post. Obviously it is a good thing I am NOT a math teacher, since I went back and realized I did the math wrong :whiteflag:

Sounds like lots of folks held off on the does then. There have been a few seasons where hunters shot over 20,000 anterless. I'd have to go back and look at the data to find the specific years.

Well, I reckon I used simple man's math...:shrug:

I figured it as 22120 this year, 15036 last year, which is about 7100 deer, which is almost half of 15,000.... So, hence my almost 50% comment..... In my mind, it was only 400 deer short of being a 50% increase, so that is pretty close in my way of ciphering....I forgot the primary point of MOWT was math.....:D

No, I just asked lungbuster44 how many he killed then added the couple hundred we on MWT harvested. :hysterical:

I got it off the MDC website.
