This meeting pertains to all of the hunting regulations and not just deer although the deer seems to get the most of the focus. Here are a couple links to the proposals for next year.

I wish I could go but I have another conference that I will be at all day. My oldest son is going to the southeast meeting in Athens and a good buddy of mine is going to the southwest meeting in Xenia. I know we always have plenty of opinions tossed around here and now is the time to put it out there where it can be heard by folks who may actually be able to do something with it.

If I was able to make it I know I would be lobbying for at least a slight reduction in limits which is what my boy and his buddies are doing. My buddy's concern relates to the zone change for some of the counties. He Shelby county which is going from Zone A to B. While the bag limits do not change for each zone Shelby county will increase from 2(1 plus 1 antlerless tag) to 4 (2 plus 2) That is double!

My son an his buddies got to spend about an hour talking to Mike Tonkovich, who many of you may recognize the name. He is the lead deer biologist for the ODNR. That is pretty cool that they got that opportunity. Mike seemed impressed that three 18-19 year olds wanted to spend time discussing such things with him. I know the boys really appreciated it.

I wish I could have gone to the meeting. It sounded as if he presented a lot of good charts and detail. He was discussing things such as hunter success and had data pertaining to the number of hunters harvesting multiple deer. For instance he showed how many take a second deer, third, fourth, etc. My boy said he thought that the fourth was something like 1 to 2% of hunters. I figured that number would be pretty low but that seemed lower than I suspected. It would be great to see that data somehow.
