· Allowing the use of crossbows the entire archery season.

· It is suggested that private landowners can get a tax break if they allow the public to hunt their land

· Voluntary............let small buck pass

· Use of non-lead bullets and replace them with copper

· Changing the legal hours of hunting to 1/2 hour prior to sunrise and 1/2 hour after sunset

· Deer management permits in portions of the Northern Zone which haven’t been offered to hunters in the past.

· Establishing deer management permits  in Mid-September in those areas where existing permits have not been adequate.

· Using fertility control methods to reduce the deer where hunting isn’t possible.

· Establishing a law prohibiting wanton waste of game animals.
