Pablo – Thanks. Interesting that Missouri has a tree stand tradition, too.
Karen – You’re looking at the limit for antlered. With bonus tags, one can also bag up to three antlerless (does or bucks with undeveloped antlers). There is also a special program that lets landowners apply for additional tags based on their acreage and hand them out to hunters, to be used only on that property. We participate in that program as well.
PA has been lengthening the season by extending archery and muzzleloader and instituting a special youth hunt, but most of us who care about conservation feel that hunting should last for months, rather than weeks.
