Crossbows may be easy to shoot like a gun but I believe their range is much closer to that of a compound than to a rifle. And they don't go BOOM or create an orange army which put a lot of pressure on the deer. Ive never heard of crossbow hunting ruining the hunting for other bow hunters.


I think those are some good points, as well. I don't really care either way with crossbows. What I take issue with is extending firearm season even further into archery season.

Bow hunters should hunt from the ground because the treestand is more of an advantage than the crossbow. I hunt from the ground with a crossbow lets see the mighty bowhunters hunt from the ground!

Sometimes it amazes me that as hunters and shooters we rail against the "dirty liberals trying to take our guns"! And yet, some hunters would want to take our bows without hesitation to make it better for them. Isn't this sorta the same things the libs are saying?

NO.

It's just my two cents, but the gate got opened and the crossbow fight is OVER. I don't consider them a bow, but a lot of folks evidently do. However, I hope the TWRA never gives any serious consideration to statewide shotgun seasons. It's just not merited, and since there's very valid arguments why the seasons are set up as they currently are, hopefully they'll just leave them ALONE.

I think the seasons are best how they are set up now. It lets archers have the advantage of hunting deer that have not been pressured, and we need that advantage to get close. I much prefer these seasons over the split up seasons where it was archery then ML then gun then ML then archery or whatever it was.

As far as the x-bows go, I have hunted with both and can assure ANYONE that it is much easier be successful with the x-bow. I think the argument to ban them from archery season is to keep the number of hunters that hunt that season down to a min. I believe ANYONE that can kill with a rifle can kill with a x-bow, but MANY of those cannot do the same with a compound. I wish they would ban them as well, but it is only because I like less people in the woods with me and I realize that this is not necessarily fair or justified, just a preference. \:\)

Yes have just a deer season. open on oct 1-JAN 1 And any weapon is legal but yoyou have a set number of deer allowwed to take.


I've been advocating that for years, simply because I'm tired of hearing hunters argue over who should have the most hunting days, bow hunters versus gun hunters versus pistol hunters, etc.

Just make it deer season. Let hunters choose which weapon they want to hunt with.


Ohh no.. I never thought I would see you post something I disagreed with \:D \:D I do understand were you are coming from though so I guess it isn't the end of the world.

I see it as every DEER HUNTER has the same amount of days to hunt. Everyone in TN has the ability to buy both archery and gun licenses.

I do, however, think this Oct 1-January 1 all weapons season may be a good idea. I would prefer it to add Sep 1-Sep 30 archery only. Why? I want to kill a deer in velvet. Most importantly.. a one buck limit.

-btw I would rather see a longer archery season but I can see the longer gun season working to benefit hunters and the deer so long as it is kept in balance.

Come on BSK, Cecil...gimme a break! Why do you have to be so, um, logical?? If we did this TNDeer may have to close down. So, are you advocating closing down TnDeer? :-)
