I'd not change too much...I like TN's program...we saw more bucks this year than I can remember in 20 years of hunting my old farm...does too for that matter.

However, if I was going to change anything I'd change the phrasing in the section "No license needed"...I'd change it from
"resident" land owners to simply "landowners". I've owned my place in TN since 1989 and I pay $251 for hunting my own land...I don't want to hunt for free but anyone that owns a home and land should be afforded the same rights as someone who lives on their land full time....This is just my opinion and if it doesn't change I won't complain...

So BSK you think letting loose with guns in October will not have an impact on the rut?


Impact the rut? How could hunting pressure impact a biological process driven by the length of the nights?


I have to disagree with you on this matter. If hunters could pick off deer from 400 yards in October, you won't see a rut. It will be at night.

Later bow draw hunt for Norris Dam. It was WAY to early in the season to hunt there. Open up more public land for hunting. Make a 3 a side rule for bucks. MAKE DEER SEASON GO UNTIL THE END OF JANUARY!

Realistically, with online check-in, and earn a buck program would be impossible to enforce.

Guys with private land make no changes...but I face the public hunter's mindset...which is "if I dont shoot it someone else will" the oldest deer ive seen in my 9 years hunting were 100% on private land 100%. But I dont have a choic now that my private land access was sold. I mentioned a 4 point one side restriction. After thinking on it, It would not be fair for private land owners/leasees. Rather I'd love to see the 4 pt rule apply to UNIT L WMAs only

If we made laws based on that theory then there would be no laws.

I can only assume you are kidding when you say this.


I just wish that there were more public areas open and that there were more places for traditional gun and not just archery. I realize that some of this is a safety factor but I cant help but think that some places could allow gun. The biggest thing should be to devote more resources to hiring more patroling wildlife officers. Poachers are some of the biggest enemies that hunters face and we need more officers to help counter-act them.

6 weeks of gun may not be to much pressure on the deer that live on large tracts but around here with 5 -100 acre tracts it is entirely to long. For a deer to survive the gun season around here they must completely disappear and thats what they do.
