i really dont want to get into this fight but let me ask this i wonder what percentage of hunters kill 1 or 2 bucks vs how many actually kill 3 a year ...
Right here in the forest i will find true happiness, the happiness that will not be contaminated by the mind of man.

Thats basically what Im getting at if u want bigger deer let them lil ones walk if u want to shoot any deer then by all means do so . We have a small farm that we do that on because it just doesnt have the potential for big deer to small of farm thats all woods with to many fields bordering every edge but I get about 2 or 3 out of there every year usually does. The 8 point I have posted here came from that same land just was in the right place at the right time kind of thing . Only seen one other buck out there all year

The regularity of this topic, and the veracity with which it is argued by both sides never ceases to amaze me, but what amazes me more, is that nobody does anything but bitch.

During a football game in high school I was arguing with another player about whose fault it was that we went three-and-out twice in a row and my coach grabbed me by the face mask and yelled something that has stuck with me ever since. "If bitching helped anything I would bitch right along with you, but it doesn't! So shut the hell up and go do something about it."

For those of you who are advocating the virtues of a 1 buck limit, have you called a legislature? Attended any public meetings? Started a petition? Contacted your neighboring land owners about QDM practice? Or do you just bitch about it on a talk form?

I am personally on the fence about the limit. If the limit is 1 or 15 I'm not going to hunt differently. A lower limit might increase the age class in my hunting area and that's a good thing -- but I respect the guy who gets a huge thrill out of killing 2 or 3 deer that I might not kill myself. I can see both arguments but I'm tired of reading about them without any action being taken.

Well I went home to NY a 1 buck limit state and most seen what I took. Well The state has big deer and I have one on my wall to prove it.

But just because it is a 1 buck limit state does not mean hunters wont shoot spikes, 3 pts 5pt and so on.

I seen 2 bucks when I was home. 5pt and an 8pt. I got the 5pt.

Ny has gone to antler restriction. Well how come I did not see bigger and larger antlered bucks. Hmmmmmm I dont get it. I guess the soil is bad and does not produce them, Or its genetics.

I shoot 3 bucks if i can and in 12 years here i tagged out once. Oh not because i did not try. due to the long drives to middle and west tn and cost of fuel I will shoot 3 bucks if i can if i can doe days are just as tough as buck days in east TN. I dont agree with the doe limits, I have seen one doe this season and she got a pass. Why because a buck was chasing her and he got a bullet.
I am a meat hunter as well. But i have the choice to let bucks walk and it should be my choice as long as i am within the Law.

im just stating the facts,the proof is in the picts and the 3 bucks we killed that went over 140+ off our property in nov.
sounds like you got a good spot. Also sounds like a 140 inch buck is pretty normal around your parts. In Tennessee, a 149 inch buck is more of a trophy because its not as common. But it does seem we are getting more big bucks lately. But I hope we don't get em like Ohio, because I dont want Tennessee to become a tourist attraction to hunters.

Man, im sure big game guy would not have posted this topic if he thought it would turn into the never ending debate that we have allseen on this forum before. I might be new to posting but I have been reading on this sight since it started. We all know there are different views and opions. I agree with southern sportsman...if you want to make a change do something about it and stop the complaining. I hunt within the guidlines of our laws and have great hunting buddies who stand on opposite sides of the aisle regarding the limit. When I first read big game guys topic I thought it was a positive thread about our state. However it has turned into another slippery slope topic that goes bad.

It seems to me that what regs we have now are working just fine. Several people I know have gotten some very nice ones on public land with a 3 buck limit in place. Imagine that. It happened without a one buck limit or size restrictions. Who'da thunk it?
Disagreeing with me doesn't make me any less right

There is a difference between being proud and being conceited
