I use to bow hunt a lot in the 80's and 90's. Then I got on a MZ kick and used it exclusively during rifle season. Now I am back to just hunting with whatever strikes my fancy that day.

I have a recurve, compound and a crossbow. I use them all during archery season.

If center fire rifle was allowed during "archery' season I would use it if I was on a big buck.

Gun hunters put more pressure on the deer then bow hunter's. There are more of them. So if you take away the month of bow season it is a disadvantage for the bow hunters. Because the deer are more skittish and way more pressured.

I do believe that if TN allowed all weapons starting Octobber 1st the fields and woods would be shot to pieces.

Doesn't Georgia open its "all weapons" season in October?

Yes, more hunters does put more pressure on the deer, which would be a disadvantage to those who currently bow hunt. But who cares, beyond those bow hunters? They have no special right to hunt less pressured deer.

If it would do no harm to the deer population, open that part of the season up to everybody. That provides more hunting opportunty to far more people than it would harm (bow hunters are a minority of hunters).

Granted they are the minority but can the person complaining about not having that month to hunt go buy a bow and hunt? Yes they can. Plus all of the other problems it would cause. Licenses would go up, hunting industry would go down in tn. All of the archery shops that would most likely go out of business. I think it would cause much more trouble then it would please people going to it.

I say to let the Bow hunters have/keep October! I wouldn't sit out there in the ticks, snakes, mosquitoes, poison oak/ivy, etc. wiping sweat for the biggest buck in TN. \:\)

But you want to hunt with a bow. What if others don't? If a long all-weapons season would do no harm to the deer herd, why not implement it? That gives the maximum number of hunters the maximum hunting opportunities. That sounds like the best deal going to me. Every hunter gets the same number of hunting days with their weapon of choice. THAT is fair.
