While talking to my girlfriends uncle yesterday, he was saying how it bugs him he has to pass up small buck son his own land since he is a meat hunter only. He always see's little scrubs running around and might not see a doe which makes it hard to fill the freezer. I like the AR because it has produced a lot more nice bucks around here, but then again I don't think it's right to tell somebody what they can shoot on their own ground.

My thinking is why not make it to where if you have landowner tags on your own place, let them be legal to shoot scrubs as well if you just want the meat. If you are hunting with a regular resident tag, then you have to follow the AR. If you are a horn hunter with your own ground, then you will pass on the scrubs anyways.

I think you'll run into trouble letting landowners break from the ranks like that.

Its a good thought... just be way easy for that to be taken advantage of.

I agree......what happens if the land owner has 6 kids that still live on the farm? They have land owner tags too!

As a rifle and bow hunter I can't understand why the 4 point rule has to apply to a bow hunter? It is hard enough already to take a deer with a bow.....now you got to count points too!

[rquote=1490807&tid=104153&author=DanF]I think you would open up another can of worms giving land owners even more benefits beyond their free tags...[/rquote]

You call making payments for years and years and paying taxes on it year after year FREE?

One more can of worms.....:shrug:

mm, should be easier to count point with the bow as they should be inside 30 yards as opped to 100 or more.

but, the landowners don't own the game on their farm so they should have to abide by the rules set for. jmo

MM, I am a huge advocate of land owner permits...I just remember the huge stink that permiatted when MDC tried to raise the amount of land needed to get those tags...hugely polarizing issue...this would just add to the fire...:02:

OR......us landowners could refuse ALL non landowners permission to hunt on our land or better yet make it illegal for them to hunt private land unless you are the owner and force non land owners to go to public land to hunt. Of couse this is going to the extreme but with liberal thinking that the country seems to be going to these days I wouldn't put it past "Them" to try it.

Exactly, I pay 250 bucks in taxes on the farm to get my free tags so really I am like a NR I guess. :D

He can shoot small bucks on his own ground. No different than me driving 75 in a 55 mph zone Just need to be ready to pay the piper if he come knockin if you follow my line of thought.:wave:

Seriously though, deer don't stay to one piece of property. What happens to wildlife on my farm affects my neighbors.
