I wish the DWR would ban the deer hunt for 3 years in a row out of every 10. Give the deer herds time to recover, make the bucks bigger, etc. Sending 60,000 hunters out to shoot deer isn't a good way to manage the population. they claim they have done predator control - how about human control as we are the biggest and only real cause to the herds being decimated. And to the families that think that they have to hunt every year just to have a good time and enjoy each others company - go camping, and go hiking. You don't need to be out to kill a deer to spend time with your family, that is foolish logic.

Wild life is poorly managed in Utah.They allow for the killing of far too many doe which significantly reduces the population. We should return to a buck only hunt.
