You had better read it again. Archery is closed during the Oct. young sportsman hunt.

No. If you read on down the page it says archery season is closed during the young sportsman hunt.

You had me worried for a second as I knew a change like that had not been discussed.

O. I actually support all seasons being closed for the youth to have their own weekends so that is good. I was reading quickly through it and just happened to notice that.

If I'm hunting that weekend I'll have a youth doing the shooting.

The Proclamation is the legal document. The Hunting Guide states that it IS NOT a legal document.

The Hunting Guide is not meant for a legal document. It is an informational summary that does not read verbatim with statutes and Commission passed regulations. All of the applicable statutes, Rules and Regulations, and Proclamations are linked on the TWRA website. That is it is printed in bold on page 8 that it is not a legal document.

The H&T Guide is nothing more than a SUMMARY of Tennessee's hunting and trapping regulations. As Steve stated, it is clearly printed on page 8 in the lower left hand corner.

It doesn't say that it has anything wrong. It says it is not a legal document. Sorry that is so hard to understand.

For some reason my patience in dealing with smart azzes is wearing thin these days. I think I will take advantage of the ignore feature at this point.

I agree with RAFI. The hunting guide should be a trusted source of information to TN hunters. If it's not a trusted source of information then it's just more wasteful beaureaucratic government garbage no more useful than toilet paper.

Go up through my posts and show one place where I said the hunting guide wasn't a good source of information and that hunters shouldn't use the Guide for information. I simply posted that it is a summary of regulations and is not a legal document.

TWRA works hard to make sure that the Hunting Guide is correct. I spent a full day recently with several others going through a second draft to work towards that goal. The only way to have it 100% is to print every statute, Proclamation, and Rule and Regulation verbatim. The resulting document would be hundred of pages long and past our ability to pay for the printing. That is why all of those regulations are available on our website and posted at the county court house.

Occasionally there is a mistake in the Guide. But, that doesn't mean that LEGALLY the Guide can supercede the actual statutes or Proclamations. Practially it usually means if we make a mistake in the Guide we live with the mistake.

Carry on while I add you to my ignore list.

With all due respect, the fact that the hunting guide didn't have an accurate definition of a legal buck is really hard to believe. A simple cut and paste from the regs would have done the trick. I'm glad this thread was started and that this exchange took place because now I know what a legal buck is in TN (At least I think I do. It's still not 100% clear whether one or both antlers have to be 3" long). Hopefully the hunting guide will be correct this year so that all TN hunters who pick up a license and hunting guide from WalMart or some other place will know what a legal buck is. I would bet most of them will never download the regs from the website or drive down to the county courthouse on a work day to read them. They will open their trusty hunting guide and expect the season dates, bag limits, and definition of a legal buck to be correct!


Legal Bucks: Deer must have at least one antler measuring a minimum of three (3) inches in length on buck-only or antlered only hunts.

Antlerless Deer: Defined as those deer with no antlers or deer with both antlers less than three (3) inches in length.

Note: The statewide antlered buck limit is three (3). Antlered deer must have antlers a minimum of three
inches (3") in length on buck only or antlered only hunts. Antlerless deer are defined as deer with no antlers
or deer with antlers less than three inches (3") in length.

Yes I did. That ONE contradiction is not very compelling in my eyes, and definitely not deserving enough to conclude the H&T Guide is useless and not trustworthy. Your statement was bold enough that there must be more examples. The single simple misprint (3" antler vs 3" antlers) is not something that I think will land you in a court room in front of a judge. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

In the past, the online PDF versions were available late July and hard copies available in stores and such mid August. Again, this was in the past, this year may be different.

Sorry SCN my friend,I would not have bothered posting anything if I had known it would turn into a once again LEO bashing of sorts..Seems like you can not please anybody these days..Thats why I have about quit posting on TnDeer,seems like you have as well.. I sure wish Ruger and other Mods would weed out the trouble making Riff Raf..or those who just watch for posts to bitch about,sure would be a better forum..
I just hate to post any informative posts any more for fear of them being deleted or locked ..............

Yes I did. That ONE contradiction is not very compelling in my eyes, and definitely not deserving enough to conclude the H&T Guide is useless and not trustworthy. Your statement was bold enough that there must be more examples. The single simple misprint (3" antler vs 3" antlers) is not something that I think will land you in a court room in front of a judge. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.


So a legal buck is both antlers longer than 3" - correct?

Thanks for all you do, SCN. I understand what you
are talking about and use the Hunting guide as a great resource.


Let me also add that SCN is a stand up guy and is a fine example of a model TWRA employee.

As a side note, if need be, print out the proclamation and carry it with you. That way you can refer to it if necessary. As for me, I like the layout of the TN Guide myself. Mainly for the pictures and charts and graphs. \:D If I have a question about something, I can just ask someone from the TWRA (like Steve Nifong, Big Game Guy, etc.).

No, only 1 antler has to be 3" long.
As for the hunting guide not being a legal document, Im sure if written a ticket against what is posted in the guide, you would win easily in court! Im sure its hard to get the guide in print to Verbatim what the legal definitions are, without making it way too big to be feasible anyway.

Per the H&T Guide, a legal buck must have one antler measuring at least 3". My personal opinion is we are getting wrapped around the axle with the semantics of the proclamation (deer with antlers less than three inches (3") in length). I think the word both, as in "deer with both antlers less than...", would be required to imply and clearly explain that requirement (both antlers), if it were one. I could be dead wrong and would defer final word to Steve, Daryl, Chad or another official TWRA representative that is in the know. My .02
