I live in a deer management unit in the UP with many private land owner doe permits available every year. My rural property is 31.9 acres, because my uncle owns a trailer lot in the center of the old family 40. In order to legally purchase land owner doe permits I need 40 acres, or the permission of somebody who owns 40 acres in that unit. I can not legally use public land doe permits on my private land, and I can not legally purchase my own private permits without the permission of a "bigger" land owner, and I can't pool land with my uncle to make a full 40. This seems like medieval feudalism to me! I, the poor peasant with only 31.9 acres, need the royal permission of a landowner with a full forty in order to get doe licenses that are legal on my own land! Have the big hunting clubs swayed the DNR to cut opportunities for smaller land owners? Is there some reason any private land owner shouldn't be allowed to get a doe permit if they are available? Does anybody else have this problem?
