comes from where you grew up and what your state regs. are??? .... I would say, "yes"

I grew up in a different state where hunting and the regs. are a lot different. I have noticed since being on this site, you can see how TN hunters are pretty much inline with what is acceptable. I have even noticed some of the bias of the experts on this site that run in conjunction with TN state regs.

Don't get me wrong because I think TWRA is doing a great job. I just wanted to point this out because when these topics are mentioned....

Baiting
Buckshot
Running deer with dogs
One buck limit

You can see TN hunters get fired up, even though these methods of hunting are excepted in other states....

The last 2 weeks of season for dogging deer does sound interesting to me. I love to rabbit hunt behind a good pack of beagles. But, unfortunately property lines become a big concern as deer tend to run much longer distances than rabbits.

Just my .02

Is it bias or tradition?

I grew up in NC where all of what you mentioned is allowed except we have a 4 buck limit in dog running counties. I'll admit it, I'm biased torwards NC deer hunting, but its not an insult to the TWRA or Tennessee. Its home and there are alot of memories involved.
I will say after hunting in West TN and East TN, hunting does not seem to be as big a deal here as it is in NC. Also, when concerned with hounds, TN seems to be a very hound unfriendly state. Hunting with dogs (a tradition) of anykind just does not seem to be promoted as much as NC, SC, Va, Ga or Fla. Not really a knock on the state of TN, just an observation.
