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. \:\)

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? :-)

All you got to do is check out another "archery talking forum", to see the in fighting this has caused in states that have this. Personally I think it would cause much more resentment from hunter to hunter, I think it's good like it is. Of course this is just my opinion, and that probably ain't worth much!

Honestly, I have no problem with a bow season before firearms seasons. I used to be primarily a bow-hunter and I get where bow-hunting advocates are coming from. This bow-season-first system increase hunting opportunity and does no harm to the resource. Plus archery hunting is the best training ground I know of for teaching woodsmanship skills. Show me a successful bow hunter and I'm probably seeing a skilled and knowledgeable hunter.

The problem I have is with those bow-hunters that somehow believe (and advocate) that they actually deserve this time without competition from other hunters; i.e. the eletist bow-hunter attitude too often prevalent among the most ardent members of the archery community. They have earned nor "deserve" any such thing.

Whatever, BSK. Tennesseans are just starving for more rifle time compared to the rest of the American whitetail hunting world...

Go ahead and kick the elitist archery hunters out of muzzleloader and rifle season if that will make you feel better. I'm fine with that.
