Talked to a biologist at ODFW today, they have removed hair/antlerless tags from most units due to a noticeable decline in numbers, and are experiencing a decline in bull only units as well. I mentioned the unit we hunt was definatly on the decline year over year. They say majority of the problem is from over hunting, but I think its the Cougars... Also the aerial surveys are definitely "Padded", who knows what the real numbers are.. We've managed to fill a few tags but Id rather not hunt a year and see the numbers increase. Anyone else have an opinion on this?...
