DNR seeks input on early doe seasons

Feb 25, 2009 Full story: Charleston Gazette 45

In what can best be described as a trial balloon, state wildlife officials plan to quiz hunters about holding special antlerless-deer seasons in September.

If you eat what you kill, then take one when ever you want,Most do anyways.The state don't pay for vehicle damage from deer so help you're self.DNR is a joke its all about money!

Sad part is that the higher the licenses and stamps go, the more decent law abiding citizens get caught shooting illegal deer. I`m not talking about the worthless rogues that kill for the horns, I`m talking about the ones that work for a living, or are disabled to some extent. It`s getting damn expensive to have a little bit of deer meat for the winter.The more people that are caught illegal, the more money the state gets from the fines.

Do you really think the fine money goes to the agency...Do some research before you post ignorant comments.
None, absolutely zero, fine money goes to state agencies when they write citations.
It goes to the Regional jail; court system and the school board.
Your right, Lets kill all the wildlife and get it over with.
It is people like you who will insure anti-gun nuts get their way in the future and take all of our firearms. Your too damn stupid to own a gun and you make the perfect argument for their cause.
Idiots...

I guess I interrupted you while you were petting your deer. I don`t recall saying lets kill all the wildlife, I would much rather rid the world of ignorant`s such as yourself,(now thats funny). There is a natural balance that has to be maintained in this world. Unfortunately the majority does`nt understand that, and probably never will.

an early doe season around september sounds like it would be the best to control the deer population. Here in greenbrier county you see deer every where even in town

Hey P Jacks, I am an avid hunter and fisherman. I hunt every season with success. I am not a tree hugger but the comments about the DNR getting the fine money are incorrect. They do not and if someone is killing deer out of season they are breaking the law period.
Yes it is expensive to buy license but not as expensive as other states. Do some research.
Yes the lawful hunter is a valuable part of wildlife management notice I said lawful hunter.
If you kill out of season your a thief.
Seasons and bag limits are the same for all.
You will not find someone more pro gun and pro hunting as me. However, I believe in the law and I believe we pay for our sport.
Your comment “Sad part is that the higher the licenses and stamps go, the more decent law abiding citizens get caught shooting illegal deer”, If they are shooting illegal deer they are not law abiding citizens. Even you must laugh at that comment.
Good luck and if your one of those “decent law abiding citizens that are killing illegal deer”, I look forward to seeing you caught.

I say open the season up in logan county then, maybe they will stay out of ritchie county where they are not wanted.the so called hunter from logan co. will kill any thing that moves in the woods. I've seen them kill fawns just out of their spots.

With the money that deer hunting brings into the state, I don't think that my opinion about deer hunting would mean anything to the state or the dnr. It is all about big money. I personally would like to see hunting outlawed!!!!!!!!!!

I personally believe that there are only about 5% of the hunters out there that are legitimate hunters. They are the ones that follow the rules, eat what they shoot, and don't trespass or disturb land owners in the state who have posted their property.

You can go into any grocery store during deer season and see the hunters loading up their carts for the big hunt. They will be loading up the bread, pepperoni, and lets not forget all the booze. Most hunters today equate hunting with partying. I can not believe that there are not more accidents with the amount of alcohol consumed all while carrying a high powered rifle. They no longer walk in the woods. They are too lazy. They have to bring their four wheelers or just hunt from their cars along the roads. Many farm animals and farm dogs are killed by hunters who are hunting on posted land.

We own a farm and have had trouble for years with hunters coming on our posted land. They cut our fence, throw trash, kill young deer and only take the tender loin and leave the rest behind. I have friends who had a horse shot and more than one friend who had their beloved farm dogs killed on their own posted land. These hunters think that they have the right to go on your land with out permission. While working outside during hunting season, more than once a rifle has been fired so close to our property that the bullet passed very close to us on our property. We have called DNR. They have always responded but with the distance involved the outlaw hunters are long gone by the time they get here. I don't have much respect for the hunters of this era. I have had year of experience dealing with the idiots who should not be allowed to carry a gun that call themselves deer hunters. One man even told us that he hunted on our farm when he was a kid so even though we are the new owners he should still be allowed to hunt there. My advice to these out law hunters is get a job, work hard like we have for the last 35 years and buy your own land.

Leah from Clarksburg: We too had many similar experiences with beer drinking hunters hunting on our land without permission, mistreating the game and our property, leaving maimed or half bodies of deer, etc. These kinds of "hunters" give a bad rap to hunters in general who are serious about the sport and do need the meat. If any hunter does not want the deer they kill, all they have to do is take it to a processor who will work it up and donate it to someone who wants and needs the meat. Yes, the herd needs to be thinned to protect peoples gardens, yards, bird feeders and flowers as well as cut down on traffic accidents involving deer; but the non-serious hunters need to be controled also.

This is to the idiot who said that our license prices are cheaper than most. You need to do your own research because i can go to Va. and buy an out of state hunting and fishing license cheaper than I can buy just my fishing license here. There is not a state that i know of near us that is more expensive.
