    Do you use trail cams? I get more pics of bucks than does all summer but still see more does than bucks once hunting season rolls around.

    They combine the winter severity index, reported hunt kill and reported road kills. And believe it or not they actually count droppings in winter yards where they do yard up. Not all areas have winter yards though.

    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    My understanding of the quota is that it is attained through a number of factors including the hunter report, but also collisions, length of winter, temperatures through the winter, amount of snowfall, and probably other things.
    i remember my hunting instructor saying winter makes the biggest difference. mild winter more doe tags is what he said. made sense..
