I know this is going to open a can of worms but I want some others opinions. This is in regards to "managing" property and the waste of a resource. My family has recently bought a piece of property in Menard county and we are just learning what we need to kill off of the place and the management plans of our neighbors. We have four guns on 850 acres and definitely need to take at least 15 to 20 does this year. This is where my problem arises. My family (myself, parents, sisters/bro-in-laws/nephews) can eat around 10 to 12 deer a year. We process everything ourselves and make hamburger, cutlets, jerky and sausage. Once we have killed what we can handle we will bring in friends and other family to take out the rest of what needs to be killed(culls&does). Sometimes this is not enough but I'm not going to just shoot something and let it lay. The man that leases our land for cattle also has the place next to us leased and has mentioned seeing does laying on the place that have been shot with just the hind legs and backstraps taken. This disgusts me. I have lost all respect for that neighbor and don't believe a word he says in regards to his "management" plans. He seemed shady from the get go and they do way to much shooting in their pasture for my liking. I also have friends that hunt on south Texas high fence ranches and talk about waste of deer all the time. To me if you do this you are not a hunter. My grandpa taught me if you shot it, it doesn't go to waste. I think this is the mentality of a true hunter and the attitude I will pass to my children. What are yalls opinions and have you witnessed this wasteful attitude in so called hunters.
