i would like to see an earn a buck program. stay with a three buck limit but make it where u only get a buck tag after killing a doe for each of the three buck tags you would have to take three does.


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


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


Not theory-reality.

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!

2 buck limit

either a shorter rifle season, or two rifle seasons with a break in between

bow season after rifle season lasting until Feb. 1

Stiffer penalties for poaching,

TWRA Agents that actually care

open up more rifle ranges year-round on WMA

Really? This would make a difference how?


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

What you hunt with is your choice. No one forces you to hunt with old timey equipment. You hunt with yours and I will hunt with my fancy shmancy inline.


HA HA HA HA.....Robtattoo....I knew you'd get hammered on this. There ain't too many of us traditional guys left. Just keep quiet and do what I do....use your side hammer or flintlock anytime you want to during the season when it's legal.

Actually, if it wasn't for the economy, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if muzzle loading season, as it stands now, was done away with.

We had this in certain over populated areas in Wisconsin and it was awesome hunting if you could find a spot to hunt. It was mostly the urban areas, so small plots of land with non-hunting yuppies that complained when thier BMW would hit a deer but didn't want anyone killing deer on thier property. It was also really, REALLY cold hunting, January in Wisconsin is cold, snowy and windy. But the deer would move all the time, and someone would always get a really nice buck during that extended period.

Allow children under the age of 12 to hunt with a rifle during muzzleloader season. I hate that my kids who are fired up about hunting cannot hunt during the best part of the season on my farms \:\(

Why can't they? They can shoot a muzzleloader as easily as they can shoot a rifle.
