A sportsmen's group is urging hunters to use more patience in the woods this fall.
Members of the Superior Deer Management say it's better to let the younger deer go to promote a stronger, healthier herd in the future.
The group is pushing a proposal to designate the Upper Peninsula as a quality deer management study area. It says the idea isn't about bagging a trophy buck but stabilizing the existing whitetail habitat and creating a more balanced male-female ratio.
The five-year proposal would start in the fall of 2006. Hunters will vote on it in December.
