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!

Absolutely not! THAT would be a disaster! ;\)

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.

Gee, thanks for deciding for me what should be enough hunting. Classic elitism...


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.

With that kind of attitude I wouldn't blame him..

HA!

No, but for me, there is nothing more fun than stirring a pot full of elitist bow-hunters. The reaction is so predictable!

Kind of like publishing a Muhammad cartoon in an Arab newspaper...

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.


Maybe you're not serious, but just because there's arguments and elitism among the ranks...? Clearly, the commission hasn't just arbitrarily set up the seasons as they are.

Regarding elitism and attitudes within the bowhunting ranks though, I'm sure there will be strong feelings for years because of the commission taking away the archery only days in November and for allowing crossbows for all. That's just politics. They'll get over it eventually, but elitism will never cease, no matter how a governing body rules.

I like the changes in seasons. I say leave it the way that it is.
