    Would add the new walleye regs are aimed at protecting breeder females. Bigger fish are just a by product.

    If you want to take away some of my hunting opportunity it's going to have to be for a biological reason to get my support. Not just an attempt to have more big bucks.

    I'd be for it. I think most peoples opinion it would depends on where you hunt.

    If you are a large landowner or have access to a large property or lease then you may not be for it because you have good odds of being able to target multiple shooter bucks and still 'protect' a large portion of your bucks to live another year.

    Those who hunt public or small private pieces are heavily impacted by other hunters, so if they want to shoot larger bucks this would be a good thing for them.

    Then of course, many people don't care about shooting big deer, they just enjoy hunting.


    I've always selfishly thought how cool it would be if buck hunting was outlawed for a couple seasons. There would be a ton of big bucks once it would be opened back up.

    Not necessarily. Lots of big bucks die every year from many reasons other than hunting. Getting a buck to 5 or 6 years old even without hunting is almost a miracle.
