...All that said, it would be nice to allow all hunters who buy a big game gun lic, to shoot ONE doe, in all areas that can handle it that is, which would be the majority of the state. I think this alone would save thousands of young bucks lives every year, due to many hunters who simply want to kill ANY deer, being forced to shoot a small buck out of necessity, because its the only legal deer they see.
I think this would do more to promote a higher % of young bucks to the next season than anything else, while also making MANY more hunters happy as well!


BINGO. I couldn't have said it better - I believe this is especially a problem in Unit B. When I started hunting and a few years after that, I just wanted to kill a deer. I hunted in Unit B, that was my only option then, I didn't bow hunt then, and if I didn't kill a doe during that one muzzleloader weekend that meant I basically had to shoot the first legal buck I saw if I wanted any deer meat. I know for a fact there are still several folks in that same boat. I fortunately have other options now, but not everyone is so fortunate.

Exactly right, still thousands and thousands of hunters faced with this problem in both Unit B and Unit A!


I don't think commissioners/fellow hunters/etc understand how particularly discouraging and disheartening the deer season becomes after muzzleloader ends in many parts of Unit B for thousands of hunters. I remember the feeling vividly as a young hunter especially. Therefore, like you said, as long as it is legal they shoot whatever they can get in many parts of Unit B especially.

I agree with Winchester and BlountArrow on the doe harvest idea.

Return muzzleloader season to what it was intended to be; traditional muzzleloaders only.

Vermin, the reason is pretty much they probably see tons of deer each time they go. Tighten up your rules in your club or lease but leave TWRA alone. No one is ever happy reguardless of what the rules are. I cant remember when Ive shot 3 bucks in one season and for those that do, good job. It's up to the person to decide what he or she wants to shoot and why should a person that has never hunted have to start out restricted. Keep the season the same, Ive had a busy season working and my luck would be it's closed when I found time to go. TWRA can't satisfy everyone but the majority of the time they do.


BSK has previously gone on record as being in favor of a 2-buck limit. I was just wondering what his reasoning is since he does this stuff for living.

Can't remember anyone on our lease taking 3 bucks in a season, but we do have a few guys that take two by the time rifle season starts. If it were a two buck limit, that would keep them from hunting for that trophy.

Don't know if it is possible but if it wouldn't effect the yearlings being born I would like to see the entire season move back one month , so oct to feb , way to hot to hunt in bow season , other than that maybe add a few more days to the season , it goes by way to fast ..




people will be shooting shed bucks as does. besides jan and feb belong to small game hunters
Thats easy. Make it antlerd buck only.

Well, it'd reduce early season pressure by reducing the amount of folks in the woods for a brief period & also give those of us that hunt with traditional equipment a better chance! \:D

Notice how many of these posts can be distilled down to: "I want the state to stop everybody else from killing bucks (hunting) so I can kill (hunt) what I want (when no one else can hunt)"? ;\)
