I think you may have to look at the impact that having one season if they did that you might get one more week of hunting guns. Then the other question is are you ready to pay more for the gun lisc? The would have to make up for the loss revenue. Also you would see a loss in the sporting goods sales in tn. While I am sure some would still hunt with bows but the numbers would drop a lot.

If put in charge I would not change the season but personally I would rather have all gun season open from Aug and close some time in Apr. But that is why they don't do what we want but what is best for the deer and to try to satisfy as meany as they can.

We need a 2 buck,4 doe season,any weapon from Oct1st to Jan 31st. Only 1 buck can be tagged from Oct1-Nov31 and 1 from Dec1st to the end. Only 2 does in each of the segments as well. If you need more deer to eat,buy another license and take that person hunting,or have some more kids. \:D

Yes, I flyfish saltwater. I've fished it all with every type of gear and I can offcialiy confirm that's the best there is. I'm also a new bow hunter with one bow kill. I'm feeling pretty darn elite these days, although I have no interest in dogs or birds except for turkeys. My unbiased opinion is that bow season is pretty darn close to being a right without actually being one. Glad I could help settle that.

I kid, kinda.


Naaa, I'm not even really advocating a three month any-weapon season. I'm just trying to get bow hunters to think, and realize they have no special right to a unique hunting season before everybody else. They should be very lucky to have what they have. Some Southeastern states have very little in the way of a bow season.

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.


But hunters in some parts of the state already deal with that. Their peak breeding is in mid-December, yet gun season opens a month before that. The deer (and especially the bucks) have been shot at with guns for almost a month before the rut kicks in. Those of us with a rut close to the gun opener are very lucky.

Hey, at least your honest enough to admit it! I can appreciate that. I just think it's too funny how some will believe that "because I don't want to hunt with other hunters" is somehow a defensible reason for a special season.

HA! You've got to be kidding me...

Once again, "reason and logic" are often in very short supply these days.

All of those would be very valid concerns.

How is it not the fairest for bow hunters to hunt from first?? There is more gun hunters then bow so it puts a ton of pressure on deer if it were just an all weapon season or if gun hunters hunted first. I am not saying that we deserve it but it is the fairest. And it gives the bow hunters more of a chance of killing a deer, before ww3 starts. Obviously if the majority of the people didn't agree with how it was set up it would had done changed.

"Fair" is everybody getting the same thing--hunting the same number of days with their personal weapon of choice.

So what if it puts more pressure on the deer? Do bow hunters think they have some right to hunting unpressured deer? They have no such right.
