Make it easier to check in deer with a smartphone...text your tag/license number in and get issued a temporary kill tag number to give to the processor....once you get home, go back online and send in the info required to get another printable tag for your next hunt.

Where I hunt , I have to drive past the processor to get home to check the deer in....seems like a waste of gas and time to me...

BH, you can print up extra kill tags now, then when you kill a deer, check it on using your smart phone, write down the permanent number, drop it off at the processor, then head back to the field to hunt some more. Sounds like what you are proposing.

I realize this isn't going to happen in today's world of tight budgets, but one thing I would love to see the TWRA do, either in a seperate study or in conjunction with the hunter opinion survey, is ask hunters to list the counties they hunted in and the number of days they hunted each county.

With advancements in technology, the TWRA is getting a better and better handle on what the deer population of the regions of the state really look like, pre and post-hunt. But what they don't really know much about is hunting pressure and hunter density. Finding out where hunters are hunting (which counties) and how much they are hunting (hunting-days per county), a much better picture of hunting pressure by location could be developed. Perhaps a link could be found between hunting pressure and localized harvest results and herd structure. This could open the door to more localized management.

Start managing turkey on a unit basis instead of a statewide basis. Also begin more localized management for deer, even down to the county level. We also desperately need some bear tags in Fentress Co., Im not saying wipe them out but we need some tags.

Set a quota on how many bucks need to be killed and sell buck tags one tag at a time until the quota is reached. When you check a buck in you can buy another buck tag. This would allow those that only want to kill one or two to do it cheaper than people that want to kill more than 3 and would limit the overall harvest.




problem is many less experienced/ skilled hunters may overharvest young bucks. i would dare say that would lower the average age of harvested bucks.
If more young bucks are taken in a given year, wouldn't that leave more older bucks in the herd that year and increase the number of older bucks for the next season?
Maybe for a short time,year or 2 ,then what happens?

There would have to be an increase in the harvest of older bucks to meet the number of bucks that would need to be harvested each year.

I am happy with what we have now. The only change I would like to see is an increase of 1 or 2 to the current buck limit. This would not have a significant statistical change in the current harvest.
