Gun hunters put more pressure on the deer then bow hunter's. There are more of them. So if you take away the month of bow season it is a disadvantage for the bow hunters. Because the deer are more skittish and way more pressured.

With this rationale, I would think this would provide support for doing away with bow season in October, and make deer season any weapon from Nov 1 - Jan 1. Why should only the bow hunters be awarded the opportunity to hunt deer that haven't been pressured?

Ill say this if tn does end up going to one i think it'll open up a can of worm's that they don't want open. It'll hurt the sport of hunting in tn.

Plus if you want to get technical gun hunters actually get the best month to hunt if anything i would like everything to start a week earlier. And it is harder to kill a deer with a bow that's why i think they should be able to have the month that they do. I'm not saying it is our right to have it but i sure do enjoy it and if some of the gun hunters would give it a try they would to.

Right, like bow hunters stop hunting at the end of bow season. Bow hunters currently get 99 days of hunting (bow/MZ/gun seasons), late September through early January, with 35 of them in September and October with no competition from other weapons hunters. Let's let everyone have 99 days of hunting with their weapon of choice.

No it won't. Just bow hunting. ;\)

Plus if we go to all weapon season do you not think our deer herd would take a big hit?? I am asking in all honestly i know you the biologist. Here's my logic please correct me if i am wrong bsk. If you give people the chance to hunt with a gun the whole season a whole lot more deer would be killed. They would e pressured like crazy plus more deer would diffenetly be killed. I believe that the deer herd would take a pretty big hit with an all weapon season especially year after year of doing it.

That would have to be monitored very closely. I suspect bag limits would need to be reduced to prevent over-harvest during a 3+ month any-weapon season.

Suppose we went to it what would you think the bag limit would be?

I have no idea. But I think it would be smart to lower it more than you think is needed for the first year, for safety sake, and then once participation and hunter harvest were assessed for a few years, slowly liberalize the limits up to the maximum number of deer allowable without doing harm.

But even with the very long seasons we have now, I think most hunters would find it shocking just how few deer are currently being taken under our liberal limits and long seasons.

A few "amazing" facts:

Only 1/3 of deer hunters in TN kill even one buck in a given year.

Only around 45% of hunters kill even one deer in a given year.

Only a tiny percentage of deer hunters (a few percent) kill 3 bucks in a given year.

Even in Unit L, where the doe limit is three per day for over 3 months, doe harvests often don't equal buck harvest. It is very common in Unit L counties for buck kills to still outnumber doe kills, even with an annual bag limit disparity of 300+ does to 3 bucks.

BSK

You are an excellent resource and great member of tndeer.

I just want to say that TN would never go to a shorter, all weapons system lol
