I hunt 3H and I welcome these AR's for my area. That area is turning out nothing but tiny bucks. I have been hunting this area for over 20 years, and have only taken one nice 8 off of my land. Many locals, who have grown up there, have not taken a buck like I took in nov '01 . I already practice QDM on my land, I just hope the locals catch on. Many never even tag their deer
One thing that needs to be addressed is the lack of DMP's in those areas. If there is AR's, and a lack of DMP's, many will be discouraged from hunting in those areas.
AR's may not be the end all be all to improving the deer herd, but it is a start.
I welcome these AR's for the next 3 years.
I hope the junior archers are exempt from these AR's.
