I have a pretty small piece of land in a county that does not permit the taking of antlerless deer. I have no problem with that in general, but my particular land is literally overrun with does. It's not unusual to have 10 at the feeder or see 30-40 in the pasture.

If it's not a possibility, I don't really care, but I'd like to shoot at least a couple of them to somewhat keep them in check. Is there any way to get issued doe tags if you have less than 50 acres and do not qualify for MLD? I only have 40 acres.

Again, no big deal if not. Just think that the intent of the rule was probably not to create a situation of vast overpopulation of does, which is exactly what we have.

I'm not sure what the acreage requirements are but do some research on LAMPS permits.

and keep in mind, that you can team up with neighbors and get both propeties under one LAMPS permit, and I think even MLD. But your are in LAMPS situation, not MLD.

Plant you some wheat out there and when the does come in they are destoying your crop. As landowner you can take them out if they are being destructive.

That is bad advice. For one reason among many - you'd have to prove that the crop was planted for agricultral use, and I don't think that's gonna work with out more eqjuipment to harvest it. Just get the permits, that's what they are for. It is only 50acres, your nlot really going to be able to have much of an impact on the deer heard anyhow. More than likely There are probably only a few deer that actually "live" on your land, everything else is traveling through.

LAMPS may be ok for a NO DOE county, but it's dumb for a multiple doe county.

Friend of mine had land in a 2 doe county went the LAMPS route, he was restricted to ONE TOTAL, while every place around him got to shoot two per person...

I believe the minimum acreage is 100. If you are freindly with your neighbors like someone mentioned before, see if they will agree with adding their land with your. I got permission with my neighbor and will be applying this May. I talked to TPWD and they said I had to wait until May to submit my request form. Negative part as mentioned in previous reply, is that you wont have a doe season like everyone else. In my county I am allowed to shoot two doe for the first 3 weeks of the season, but with the "doe" permit, I have to go with what they tell me to shoot. It might be only one, but I would wether wait until after the rutting is done to shoot a doe than to shoot during the first 3 weeks of rifle season. JMO. Good Luck

Not only is it bad advice, but what is being offered or suggested is manipulation of a regulation for what it's not intended for in the first place. That would not constitute depredating a crop.

go MLD, there is no advantage LAMPS has over MLD especially with minimal acreage, I have a 40 & 20 acre place in Colorado county registered and both get 1 doe tag a piece, and I have a 140 acre place that gets 2-3 tags a year in Colorado county. And I have a 60 acre place in Fayette county that gets 2 tags, and a 50 acre place in Lavaca that gets 3 tags. There is no set limit, 1 tag per 100 acres is a general guideline. All 3 of those counties have high doe numbers and the 2 biologists have no problem giving them to you if you use them.

Thanks for all the information, guys. I can, in fact, take a bag limit of 2 does during archery season. It looks like my best bet might just be to do that and have a couple of friends do the same, although we'd probably have to take 20 does to even make a dent.

I'm also going to call my large neighbor and see what his thoughts are on doe management. I know he hunts, but I'm not sure if he has the MLD permits, though he certainly qualifies from a size perspective.

yeah dont apply for doe tags bc u can shoot 2 w a bow, but only during archery season, once rifle season comes around u cant w/o a tag. and if u get MLD doe tags u cannot shoot 2 w/o a tag. u can only archery hunt 2 w/o a tag if u dont have MLD permits on the land. IF THAT MAKES SENSE
