While you guys didn't get TeleCheck you did show the Commission and the Agency that there are problems with some checking stations that need to be addressed. That was a major accomplishment. Had you never started the TeleCheck controversy there would have been little change. Gentlemen, a few hunters making a little noise can make a big difference in this State.

I completely agree.

And concerning "proof of sex," you can butcher the deer, but as long as you have the head and complete hide, that is good enough.

Just for clarification I asked if the head and hide were proof of sex and we were told you had to keep everything left over from the processing until the animal was checked in.

I was wondering the same thing about the turkey regulations. The way I read it is that #4 is what you have to use. I am very leery of using a .410 for turkey hunting.

Yeah and my gun doesnt pattern #4 worth a hoot. It likes #6 and at 25 yards I can put the entire pattern inside a coffee can. I would much rather put 90% of the #6 pellets in the head/neck/kill zone than to hit a turkey with 2 #4 pellets.

from what i recall about the proposed turkey shot requirements was # 4 a minimum. don't understand why the twra would propose a change to include 410 shotguns LEGAL for turkey. that defies logic just so there will be less felt recoil for the young hunter , thats whackey !

I think it is the new wave in the agency to make it easier for juveniles to hunt. It is all because of that whacky Region I manager we have to watch him like a hawk. \:\)

There were a couple of other major changes that hunters should be aware of.
Oak Ridge will drop the antler restriction and go to a 2 deer limit from a 3 deer limit. TWRA stated they were against dropping it but the DOE wants more deer killed on Oak Ridge and is forcing the issue. The Agency is trying to get it reinstated but it doesn't look good.

Oak Ridge is a perfect example where we hunters dropped the ball. We had a chance to have something real special at Oak Ridge. We didn't kill enough does. We have only ourselves to blame for this one.

There are a lot of changes for South Cherokee, to be honest I'm not sure I understand them well enough to discuss them. Maybe BGG can post one of those charts.

If you ever want to see how to get something done at a commission meeting you need to watch the Dog/bear people. They were there in force. There was one minor item that they didn't like and from what I understand there will be a meeting in Sweetwater with all of them and the TWRA to iron out their differences before the next Commission meeting. Gentlemen that is power - there is less than a 1,000 of them statewide but they show up in force with a common agenda.

I DO have one question about a proposed rule change for turkey hunting. When they proposed that 20ga and smaller be allowed with #4 shot, it looked like the way it was worded that this rule change meant that ONLY #4 shot would be legal for turkey.

Anybody have more information on that?


Actually, the wording is "...#4 or smaller shot.."

I am happy with the 36 hr. allowance . I addresses my main concern , and that is closed checking stations . Sounds like you guys had a informative and productive meeting . My hat's off to the guys that took time off to attend the meeting . Thank you for representing the concerns of hunters on both sides of the issue of telecheck .

I was pleased to hear Overton and Jackson counties would be moving to Unit B. I guess those fruit baskets to the commissioners did work.
