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.

So in reality we should do away with game laws all together because they can not be enforced 100%?

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.


Oh, you mean daylight rutting activity, not the actual breeding process itself. Big difference.

The rut occurs at about the same time every year whether you are out there hunting or not. Now how much of rutting activity occurs at night versus during daylight will be influenced by many factors, especially hunting pressure and the weather.

Once again.
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. Im fine with the buck limits as well. 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!
