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.


I don't think a 2 buck limit would make much of a difference biologically (as in improving buck age structure). I just like a 2 buck limit and I think it sends a message to hunters that bucks are a desireable yet somewhat limited resource. I think this might help a little in changing attitudes, just like the 3-doe-a-day limit did. The state never expected people to try and kill that many. But the 3-doe-per-day limit sent a message to hunters that killing does is OK. That message got through. Perhaps a 2 buck limit message might change minds over time.

But I'm perfectly fine with the 3 buck limit. I just prefer a 2 buck limit.

First off im tickled with where we are in TN concerning the deer herd, the age structure, buck to do ratio's, etc. I think the hunting, mature bucks included, is as good as its ever been and getting slowly better each year.


I agree completely. The herd structure in TN is better than it has ever been and still showing signs of slow improvement.

Well I'm sorry to appear selfish. I do, however, fully believe that the seasons should be left as intended. Muzzleloader for sidelock muzzleloaders, archery for archery equipment not crossbows, general season for anything goes.

I would like to see the second week of m/l go back to archery, and I would not complain about a 1 or 2 buck limit!

Tennessee needs many laws changed for upcoming season.... First, our herd is in danger of poor quality unless the buck limit is reduced to 1. Also , all bucks harvested must be past the ears and/or have four or more points on one side. The buck must appear to be a least 3 1/2 years old by the neck and all hunters will be required to re-take the hunter safety course which will include lessons in field-aging bucks and counting antler points from a distance. Each hunter should also be required to shoot a number of does depending on which unit of the state, before harvesting their one buck. Also, baiting will be legalized and the agency will be importing thousands of tons of Kentucky's finest soil via railroad freight and deposited onto select WMAs and private managed lands. People who shoot young bucks and small-racked bucks will become subject to the same shame as any poacher and the agency will add a new section to the wall of shame to include bucks that did not meet the minimum requirements for antler ad age superiority. Tennessee must strive to become the next Saskatchewan of buck quality.

count button bucks as bucks


That also would make them legal to shoot as a buck as you can't have it both ways.

So you really think it would make a big difference in the number of buck fawns killed?


it would help some. they are legal in unit L as anterless, to the tune of 3 per day so making them legal as bucks would have no adverse effect on us

Honestly do you think ANYONE has ever shot 3 button bucks in the same day ??





Where did i write that? i just feel a deer that was born a buck, should die a buck. i guess it would be a built in penalty of sorts for hunters who do not tke the time to ID a deer before pulling the trigger.
