    Wonder if it is doe only or can you take bucks?
    "agents" are not allowed to keep antlers. They also are not allowed to keep any deer. 40 lbs of meat is given to the "agents" when they put in do many "shifts".

    i CAN'T IMAGINE WHY NOBODY POSTED THAT INFO

    A neighbor of mine received the application and info for this hunt back in the fall. He's not much of a hunter and passed it along to me to see if I was interested. Personally, after reading thru the material, it sounds like BS!

    You have to help bait and such. You need to hunt from 30 feet up (too high for me as I prefer 12-20). You need to hunt in shifts and you ONLY get venison after you have hunted X amount of shifts, etc. Plus, you're not getting your own meat.

    My experiences hunting in programs like this is that the first day is the only successful day and then the deer get skittish, scattered and change their patterns. Subsequent hunting days the deer tend to be scarce or not around at all.

    I prefer baiting my own hunting land and harvesting and eating MY DEER! Of course, if you don't like hunting WMAs or have access to private land, this might be a good alternative. But from what I understand, this might be the "good ol boys club" kind of thing...
