Antler restrictions The last 2 years PA has had new antler restrictions in place. In most of the state a buck must have at least 3 points on one side to be harvested, but in some of the more populated areas (SW PA and SE PA) it must have at least 4 points. My understanding of the restrictions is to allow the younger bucks to mature. What I dont understand is why the more populated areas have a higher standard. The more populated the area the more deer/auto collisions, the more over population of deer, and it would seem the more inter breeding of genetics. Would it not make more sense to have the restrictions reversed so that the smaller deer could be harvested in the more populated (people wise) areas? Im asking because while hunting we saw many 6 point or less (legal for most of the state but not where I was hunting). Most hunters I talked to didnt fill their tags in this area due to the restrictions. Other than trying to draw in out of state hunters for trophy sized buck ($100+ for a tag compared to $20 for residents) I cant see how this is helpful to the deer population. What are your thought on this. If you are a PA hunter were you successful in filling your tag under these restrictions?
