    You can't kill what's not there. Any area that got hit hard with this is going to have a reduced kill no matter what your intentions are about killing a lot of deer. I have a friend that has deer coming to the back of his townhouse every year. He lives in Ocean County. He claims there are as many or more than previous years. It is possible that some areas may NOT be affected at all by this. We can't speak in generalities about what harvest needs are. If you are in an area that got hit hard, make your decision. If you have plenty of deer in your area, make your decisions based on that. 
    Deer are not migratory. They don't go from Sussex County to Cumberland County. What a guy does miles away does not directly impact you. 
    If I tell the Farmer I am not killing deer because I am managing the deer herd, I won't be back next year.

    But even with unlimited antlerless for many years, the herd is stable. A steady level of harvest for the past 20 years.

    Since I am retired and don't have to schedule time off, I will be in the woods as much as possible so I'm sure I'll catch a few good days here and there.

    The actual reason this state will never do anything about it is some in charge want the deer population ridiculously low.  Statewide goal is 5-10 deer per square

    A cooler full of Mahi is not a bad consolation prize. IMO, tuna fishing in NJ is sketchy. You have to be up for disappointment or you shouldn't go. Me? I can't accept spending that kind of money and hours and get skunked. I would rather wait till I go on vacation somewhere more predictable and spend my money there.

    I would do what Chevy recommends for a 100K maintenance. For what new vehicles cost, if you can get one, I would invest in some PM.

    archer36 reacted to Woodsman416 in High Mileage Car Maintenance Opinions   
    Yes, you should do the manufacturer recommended maintenance.
    Unless:
    You have magical spark plugs that don't wear and increase their gap over time.
    You have magical antifreeze that doesn't turn more acidic over time.
    You have magical hydraulic/lubricating fluids that don't thin out or become contaminated over time.
    You have magical filters that don't become restricted over time.
     
    If you have any of the above, you're good to go!

    I am lucky to have a direct flight from Newark Airport, It's about 15 hours. Last time I went, with connecting flights it was 24 hours.  This year was the first year a direct flight from Newark was offered.

    I would ask my Son for some facts since he has a high level position in DHS and his department is closely involved in the vetting process. The last I heard they were processing 30,000 TOTAL applications. 
    I don't want to bother him because he is getting caught up on work before we leave for South Africa tomorrow night. 
    FYI, most of what you will "hear" is BS.

    We hunt non- stocking days and always have some type of action, actually for us it resembles more of an old fashion hunt . The birds have had a chance to spread out and sometimes we have these places to ourselves . I think 40 bucks is a bargain for the amount of time you get to spend behind your bird dog.
