I'm a QDMA guy..hell I was practicing QDMA before it was freaking labeled as such. Do I try to impose my will on my neighbors...no. Their land is their land and what they do on it is out of my control which stops at the property bounderies. As a patriot and a believer and supporter of the USA/constitution I think it's wrong to impose one persons will on another and I'm a firm believer in the logic that one persons rights end where another persons rights begin. That said...that doesn't mean I have to be happy about the neighbor that invites 30 company personel to hunt his 30 acres over the course of a season and allow the local deer to be slaughtered. To me that's just gross neighbor edicate and flipping the bird to every neighbor in the area that cares about deer. I don't haggle the guy but I don't go out of my way to greet him with a handshake anymore either....personally I loath the guy and it's every bit as much my right to dislike someone personally for their actions as it is their right to do anything that's legal on their property. So, in short, I don't believe in trying to "force" anyone to act a certain way but I don't have to feel good about it either. Appearently I'm happy in my disdain and he's happy being party to having a negative impact on the local deer herds and that's where it ends. Even if I had the political clout to impose some sort of control on the nieghbors I wouldn't do it. I believe in persuasion, not revoking of free will. However I will continue to try to convince most folks of the advantages of QDMA style management. It's not about trophy deer or only shooting old mature deer. Done correctly, it's about having healthier deer and a broader range of deer to further manage/harvest. To those that complain about restrictions, first I don't agree with restrictions...I believe in cohersion and positive reinforcment. Point restrictions are a poor substitute for properly estimating age and that is the key to efficient management. Does and 3+ year old bucks are fair game. The problem with point restrictions is that (in MO for example) a 2 year old may be legal with four on one side while a 5+ with four total is not..that's just wrong. I realize it's not realistic to train every hunter to age deer but that just makes the point restrictions that much more arbitrary. Better options could be used to promote folks educating themselves and passing on young deer....making it voluntary and appealing to do so not forcing the choice on them. I'm happy with the phrase, "Shoot what makes you happy"...if I don't like what is shot then I'm free to *itch and moan about it all I want to.
