Yep I'm sure it will be due to lack of participation just as expected...so exactly what is your solution to that?

Going by previous estimates that would mean around 200k plus deer killed illegally by not checking them, seems like a good time to go around and do random checks on about anybody since over 50% of hunters broke the law, start writing tickets, lather, rinse, repeat.

200k plus tickets at a modest $50 a pop may be enough money for DNR to actually manage some of the WMA's.

That needs to change then, maybe if they got something for doing more than nothing they would actually do something.

Will the number of hunters on WMAs be included at some point so as to see success ratios?

Also, is there anyway for deer to be entered inaccurately, as in too many for an area? The reason I ask is, in looking at the results as of today, Allatoona WMA had the 3rd highest deer kill of all WMAs, I have a feeling those numbers are off by a long shot. I highly doubt there are 132 deer on the whole place much less a kill rate that high.

I enjoy hunting, fishing and the outdoors. I don't enjoy too many regulations or extra things to do to be legal. Have voiced this before and got lots of flack, but that's how i feel about it. More regulations and hoops to jump through doesn't make illegal minded folks do any different. Personally, i don't think call in kills will ever give an accurate count. Certainly will not include predator kills, lost game or vehicle accidents. Loss of habitat is the culprit in my area of SW Ga, when it comes to reducing wildlife numbers. More farm fields and cattle pastures come each year. Would love to see a survey of each county, as to how much habitat is lost each year since the year 2000 for a start. Bet it would amaze some. My club started out in SW Ga 30 years ago with about 2000 acres, grew to about 2500 acres. Now we're down to about 1000 with cleared pastures and farms around us. We're getting squeezed out so to speak.

A comparison of 2016-17 & 2017-18 Seasons...Wk #1 thru Wk #12...comparing total Male deer reported and total Female deer reported...about 3,800 more Male deer reported this season than last...about 10,100 fewer female deer reported this season than last.
