I hunt in Allaire often, grew up in Brick, Pt. Pleasant area. since the earn a buck program started 5 years ago, the ratio is in much better balance.
its time to limit the mandatory doe harvest to 1 per year, making you eligible to harvest a buck, after you tag a doe, for the rest of the fall,extended, and winter bow seasons. lots of nice racks around now from the program, but they have accomplished what they set out to do.(thin the herd) almost harder to shoot a doe now than a buck in this zone.
