    How many deer are you allowed to take in zone 4,I know a hunter that took a button buck with a bow and now he has took two more does with muzzleloader and he said he is still allowed one more deer can this be true.

    You can take 4 deer in zone 4 as long as you buy bonus tags.

    Correct!

    My wife's family owns a lot of property in zone 4, and we hunt there sometimes... I also have a lot of friends and know a lot of people that live in the areas.

    I know one thing: Zone 4 sure has A LOT of poachers... During modern gun season you can't shoot a Doe... A guy shot a Doe and killed it right in front of me & my wife on her family's property.... I told him he was on private property, and he said he killed a spike, not a Doe.:rolleyes:

    I called the Game Warden and told them about it, And they don't care!:rolleyes:

    I also know a guy that kills several Bucks a year and saws the antlers off, and leaves the rest of the deer laying there... I have tried to turn him in, But I can't get them to even come out... It makes me so mad!

    i live and hunt in zone 4 and i know of alot of people who kill way more than their share of deer. one night during rifle season i heard a shot at around 11:00pm and the next morning when i drove out the driveway there was a big doe laying dead in the middle of a field. i called the number on the front of the hunting guide and gave them all the information they ask for and i'm still waiting a month later for a call back.

    Sorry people... Did they take any meat from the Doe?

    I was told by a friend that a guy shot a 16 point Buck after 10:00PM one night, and the next morning he tagged it in and took the head to have it mounted... Now, What fun is that?:rolleyes:

    I hear ya!... I did the same thing several times!.. Next time I'm not going to call, I'm going to drive to their office with my proof.

    In some parts of Zone 4, They need to take gun season out for several years, Because there isn't much deer at all.

    As much as I hate to admit it we are eat up with poachers in zone 4..Its the worst its ever been!!!! Slobs throw up stands anywhere they want, hunt with slugs during muzzleloader season and go anywhere they damn well please regardless of property lines..It infuriates me:mad: Its a lot harder for wardens to catch poachers in the mountains..Around here you can kill all the deer you want, drag them off the mountain behind your house and no one will ever know..Its not killing on in the flat country..No one knows what goes on in the hollers unless they happen to be standing there..No one sees anything.
