I thought of another.

Either have an auction elk tag, or a youth elk tag, but not both. By having both, they are removing over 33% of the available tags from the general drawing. The elk program has cost way too much to remove this high of a percentage of tags from the folks who pay for it.

If thats the case then close all hunting in counties with slim doe opportunity? Why would you punish people in counties with plenty of does, that would mean counties with slim amounts of does should not have a season at all

Educate the hunters in this state. I have hunted all over the SE and the majority of deer hunters I have interacted with here in East TN are very new to the sport or have never learned anything about how to hunt deer. Sure plenty get killed by these hunters each year, but there is a difference in my opinion in hunting and shooting.

Some of the other states have really done a good job of educating hunters on all facets of deer hunting whether it be habitat management, herd management, or simple hunting strategies. If TN has done this then it is news to me, and wouldn't be the first time I overlooked something.

X2.

Make it "deer" season, not bow season, or MZ season, etc. Open deer season Oct. 1 and run it through mid January. Use lower bag limits to adjust for any unwanted increase in harvest caused by more days of hunting with firearms.



absolutely. except end it Jan 1

- 2 buck limit statewide.
- 1 buck with rifle, 1 buck with archery/muzzleloader.
- get rid of the entire antlerless non-quota hunts table for Units A and B in the hunting guide and set a season rifle doe limit for each county.
- go back to the split rifle season and shorten it by a week or two.
- add a week or at least a weekend of traditional muzzleloader. I can confidently shoot 250+ yds with my scoped Savage smokeless. The current muzzleloader season is essentially an extra 2 weeks of rifle season for hunters with a good in-line.

To summarize - less bucks, less rifle, more bow, more traditional muzzleloader. I realize none of this will happen, but you asked what we would like to see...
