My argument will be for Land .Owner Tags to be good for any season. I have a lot of deer on my property year after year that I can track, get pictures, and retrieve sheds. They do not spend much time on other properties to my knowledge. I have my management goals and typically my family and possibly a close friend might get a chance to hunt on my land. If during a certain year I have a target buck I want to remove from the population (or two) I am likely the only one who will do it. If early muzzy comes and goes and I don't get my chance I will like the opportunity to still remove that buck to make room for others to grow up on the farm. Also, I have the issue that my farm is 3 hours from my home. If the weather does not cooperate, I end up having a kids wrestling tournament, a house project comes up etc etc... the extra time to use my tag helps me and the deer health/population/balance on my property. You might argue that I have my regular tags for that...I do, and with a busy family life I also have places I hunt closer to home and can squeak out to get a chance hear and there. If I fill my tag close to home my farm will see no benefits from a population reduction. There are very few years I shoot more than one buck in my situation so I feel it is well balanced and I am not hurting the population or taking more than my share. My wife MIGHT shoot a deer during her shotgun season, but it is more about time in the blind than anything... I sacrificed different things and worked hard to get what I have. I like owning the land and having the extra tag to help manage the land. The US is equal opportunity- if you want to manage land with land owner tags there are lots of ways to make that dream happen. For some people it is not worth the extra sacrifices.
