How about making somebody responsible for and in charge of the performance of TWRA decisions in the Regions? We have 5 agencies now. Nashville, Regions 1,2,3, and 4. Nobody is in charge.

2 buck limit.

If you had just one season with out a archery and ML would that kill those two sports? I know the people that are avid bow hunters would keep doing it but some people like me may not if I could hunt riffle all the time I would probably just do that. I am trying archery just because I can do it early. I am sure that is why some young kids do it also and then they start liking it and become the great hunters you all are. It is also nice to know you are semi safe for a little while hunting bow and there are not all those john wayne fans throwing lead every ware \:\) I am all for the longer season to go into mid Jan I think if the unlimited taking of does is not hurting the deer population in unit l then I like it the way it is. I would think that not a lot of people kill that many does but the ones that do may do it for meat also and I am a firm believer if they are killing for meet for there family then that should be ok.

Seasons should not be set to support a particular part of the hunting industry.

Not to support the industry but the sport. If people are not guided to try it for some benefit you kill the sport, and rules used all the time in the name of sport. Look at what they limit for bait, calling, decoy's all in the name of "SPORT"

I, myself, am not qualified to answer what they should be doing. However, what I'd like for them to do is a matter of opinion at best. ;\)

I'm not a fan of all one season thinking. I really do believe they (the deer) would be stressed more if firearms were allowed from what is now the beginning of archery season, all the way till the end of traditional firearms season. I think the setup is just fine myself at this point.

A

draw hunt, similar to the current Elk draw, for a whitetail deer hunt in Cades Cove. Each applicant can apply for up to 5 chances to be drawn.
Proceeds split evenly between "Friends of the GSMNP" and TWRA.

Great idea but unfortunatly it won't work since GSMNP is not under TWRA control.

It wouldn't "kill" the sport. Mathews and PSE will still sell archery equipment just as TC and CVA will sell muzzle loaders. It would give everyone more variety of what they want to hunt with on any day of the season. Would most simply use gun for the whole season? Probably, but they would still have the option of archery and muzzle loader.

Have deer season end Januart 31st. Many of the southern TN counties along the AL and MS have a good primary rut going during the 1st wk of JAN and secondary rut at end of Jan.

Most of those who hunt with a bow during bow season, and/or hunt with an bow/MZ during MZ season, are the same hunters who hunt gun season (with whatever weapon they choose). Having one single season where weapon is by hunter choice is not going to keep many hunters from hunting. It would not harm the sport of deer hunting.
