who would be interested in a 1 buck limit

Postby WTM » Fri Aug 23, 2019 11:24 am

or possibly keep the 2 buck limit and adding earn a buck? maybe we could grow some quality bucks? of course this wouldnt apply to CWD zones.

I would be for reducing the does before I would reduce the buck limit again. Of course I would really be in favor of reduced cost of sportsman license

I understand both sides of the argument that is sure to come. :pop:

I rarely kill more than 1 buck and ALOT of years I don't kill any.

With that being said, i'm good with anything between 1-3 and could care less honestly. :tu:

I could go along with this because those strip bars are getting pricey. :party:

Off the top of my head I think I’d rather have a 1-buck per weapon season (3 total) vs a 1-buck overall.

I hunt KY and a lot of other “1-buck” states and I really like it but....not everyone is able to do that.

My honest opinion, reduce the does by an earn a buck program. 3 Doe's in unit L gets you a buck tag. Other units 1 or 2 doe's gets a buck tag. Keep the buck limit at 2 or 3. Cwd zones excluded. Jmo.

Biggest issue I see with that is you then give a small segment of people who use all 3 weapons and and have the money to buy 3 separate licenses an opportunity that few others get. I don't generally wade into this debate because I just hunt differently. I'm not quite brown and down, but I won't sit all season and get skunked because a 12 point doesn't walk out. I'm plenty happy to shoot a 6 point buck. I don't understand what people think going to a 1 buck limit is going to really do. Fewer and fewer people are hunting anyway as it is.

There is only one real hope in this life, JESUS is it!!!!! This is not burger king biology you can't have it your way!!!!! Happy hunters against armchair biology!!!!

I've hunted under a 1-buck limit for the past 10 years. It sucks. Got that 5 year old scraggly 8 at 30 yards? The one that's always pushing other bucks off of your mineral sites. Can't shoot him if you want to hold out for one of your "good" ones.

Shot a velvet buck? You're doe hunting for the next 4 months.

I had that conversation yesterday with a guy. If they ever made tennessee a 1 buck state I'm sure someone would be real excited and happy the moment they kill a good velvet deer in late Augest. And real sad that first nice week on November when they got bigger bucks chasing all around them with only doe tags.

Sure feels like they are Alot less hunters when I was younger opening day 5am pulling into the local gas station to grab a drank it would be Full of hunters see 10 before you hit the road again you would know half of them... Now days only thing around a gas station at 5am is a crackhead, and a 18 year old cashier half asleep playing on his phone.

Yep - that's why I like the 2 buck limit and would love it to be permanent.

Last year, killed one in velvet, and made the decision to not step back in the woods until muzzleloader (made that decision before my boots hit the ground out of the stand to go recover him).

No, never.

Here’s just one of several good bucks I’ve seen on public land that gets hunted hard with the statewide 2 buck limit.

We do grow quality bucks. Not all hunters want to wait for a giant, some just enjoy killing a deer whether it’s big or small. The limits should reflect herd health and hunter opportunity.

I’ve never heard anyone with good knowledge of deer biology support earn-a-buck. That’s a quick way to kill too many does just so people can shoot a buck.
