You are comparing 1000 acres of "Lightly hunted" hiis to maybe 1000 acres of cut up land where access is behind every house. Completely different situation.

You missed my point.
My point was that the deer weren't moving much during daylight, even with less gun hunting.

Many people are mistakenly blaming a "long gun season" for decreasing daytime deer movement when the real reason is often more just a good acorn crop, shifting food sources, and natural deer behavior (such as the buck movement essentially shutting down post-rut).

Maybe the deer hunters where you hunt are finished with the deer but around here people hunt to the last day. Sat. morning probably 10 -12 shots spread out up and down the road.

Not saying there aren't regional differences, and some areas are under a lot more pressure.

But is the problem too long a gun season, or too long a deer season (archery, muzzleloader, and gun)?

Or is the problem just too many people hunting the area, regardless of how many days the season is open?

If you want to see some real "pressure", there are many places in states with short gun seasons that are under a lot more pressure than most of Tennessee.

Where I killed my first deer, that spot is now surrounded by houses. It's still outside the city limits, and I could still deer hunt there. But the problem is too many people (AND THEIR DOGS!) around there, nothing to do with the deer seasons. Those deer are under a lot of "pressure" (mainly from all the free-roaming dogs).

I know we're not really voting but I'll throw in my 2 cents.

- Seasons and bag limits are fine as is.
- 2 buck limit would be fine, but 3 is fine also.
- I'm fine with current weapon structure (crossbows during bow season, in-lines during mz, etc)
- I'm fine with season start and end dates
- I'm fine with people feeding wildlife, as long as they're not hunting over it. IMO, people have just as much right to feed wildlife for the purpose of viewing as hunters have to plant food plots for the purpose of hunting. The wildlife is "owned" by the state, which includes hunters and non-hunters.

My rule that I'll always mention is muzzleloader or shotgun. Modern ml's are more accurate. Maybe an early archery/no x-bow season like some states do.

i think it funny how people blame guns for pressured deer. deer hear loud noises all the time, it is nothing more than scent and people jumping deer which happens durin bow,muzzleloader and rifle.

Why not make it an "early cross-bow season/no compound-bow season"?
