I think we need an unbiased opinion. Any fly fishermen or bird dog owners on the board?

That's because no one has ever forced to look in the mirror and realize bow hunters don't deserve time in the woods alone. They currently have that, but they certainly don't deserve it, and I see no reason to preserve that if more hunting time could be given to more hunters without doing harm to the deer population (although that is a question that would have to be biologically answered first).

Why would you want to? Those arguing for a bow season don't have a logical leg to stand on. It's a no-win argument.

By the way, do you bow hunt? ;\)


I used to bow hunt almost exclusively. I would put in well over 100 hours of treestand time during bow season, and then maybe 20-25 during MZ/gun season.

What if a I don't want to hunt with a bow?

Why do bow hunters think they deserve time to hunt when other hunters wanting to use other weapons can't?



Maybe think of it like this...baseball season, football season, basketball season, hockey season with a little overlap here and there. I'm thinking that you have some ulterior motive for being so flippant...especially, since you don't bow hunt...

But if I want to play football during baseball season, and that does no harm, shouldn't I be allowed to?

Of course I'm being flippant on purpose! ;\)

But in all honesty, I do want bow hunters to realize they have no special "right" to a unique weapon season, and there is no valid argument for such a right.

Every so often, one of these leagues goes on strike, though. Since we are going down that road, maybe all the hunters who are believers in a mono-season should go on strike???

BSK, are you just upset bc you weren't better shooting live deer with a bow?

I kid, kinda.

I recognize the logic and agree with your argument, but I would be very sad if there was not a bow only season. Gun season brings out the crazys, and I can't imagine how little daylight rutting activity would be seen if it was open well in advance of the rut.

I'm fine being called selfish for that and don't deserve a lot of things I have in life, but I still enjoy them!

No one ever said we had a right to bow hunt only but it is the fairest. Gun hunters put crazy amount of pressure on deer, so in reality i think it is fair for bow hunter's to have that month. And if someone doesn't want to hunt with a bow to have the woods "to themselves " then that's their fault they have no excuse to be unhappy that they hunt after the bow hunters. Everyone has a fair opportunity at every season. Bow hunters do not think they are better hunters nor our we selfish.
