Has a January Archery only season been considered?

A couple years ago the January gun season was shortened. It would be nice to still be able to hunt in January.

The current season goes to Jan. 6.

There will be a request for season recommendations where the public can provide input starting in January.

The season was restored last year to where it was previously (closes first full weekend in January).

Sure would be nice to have a bow season after gun season ends in Jan. Many states to our North, Ohio, south, AL and MS, have seasons that go well into Jan or early Feb.

That would be excellent. I wouldn't think extending it into January would mean an unintended assault on the bucks either because in my neck of the woods many kept their antlers into March.

It wouldn't affect me either way because I'm burned out by then but on several southern TN WMA's and private land, we pick up fresh sheds every year in January.

In fact, last year I picked up three one day in mid January and several bucks in that area didn't shed until mid March.

In agreement here with extending archery season through January. Wouldn’t have but a minimum effect on harvest. The state would generate a few more $$$$ in fees. I have out of state friends that would travel here to hunt. We currently travel to Arkansas after our season, why not bring the $$$$ to our state.

ditto: I have submitted this to TWRA Public Input. I hope they listen. It would sure help with doe harvest, when there's a 3 doe a day limit other times, and you would have dedicated hunters wanting to harvest does willing and able

the problem is many bucks have already shed and it would intrude on the small game hunters. surely 3.5 months of deer season is enough

Not on private lands.

If folks don't small game hunt but want to deer hunt, why not on private lands for January?

Doskil,
Because as soon as deer season opens it is then illegal to coyote hunt with anything other than what is legal for deer.
So you either have to use a bow, or a muzzleloader or rifle when they come in season, but you also have to abide by the blaze orange laws as well.

I love to deer hunt as much as anyone but I would be against extending deer season any farther into the year.

Open it Sept 1 like KY does.

Yea that way there can be a thousand more threads on here every year about, "those stupid squirrel hunters messed my bow hunt up! I think squirrel season should be closed until after deer season ends!!"

Yep just alot more trouble than its really worth, to accommodate ALL hunters. Maybe they will overlook it.

I think the season is long enough. If anything changed, open bow up earlier

I think small game hunters deserve some of the woods to their own too, during the cooler months with no foliage on trees.

I agree that is a legitimate issue, but it is not the only problem.

We have a problem with "division" among nearly everything "American" these days, and seems like a current central government that is purposefully trying to divide us. My comments may sound more like something that should be on a political forum, but please bear with me for just a moment.

Here, we are all "deer hunters". We are also all included in a larger group of simply "hunters". The more united we can be as hunters, the better.

That said, imo, and generally speaking, currently no group of hunters has more of the pie than us deer hunters, particularly us bowhunters. SHOULD there be any new or additional deer hunting opportunities made, I believe these should go to ALL deer hunters to what extent possible (which of course would include us bowhunters).

But I do not believe bowhunters should be given any more additional exclusive hunting days while the majority of deer hunters get nothing.

In terms of trying to do no harm or not cause further division among deer hunters, small game hunters or any hunters, I would be opposed to making deer season extend any further into January. However, I would not necessarily be opposed to opening archery season earlier, nor to opening the centerfire rifle season earlier, while keeping the "end" of deer season where it's currently the first full weekend in January.

United we stand, divided we fall.

As an example of a scenario that possibly could provide more opportunity than harm to most hunters:

Open Archery Deer Season One Week Earlier.
Open Muzzleloader Deer Season One Week Earlier.
Open Rifle Deer Season One Week Earlier, but if it remains open until the 1st full weekend of January, all deer hunters have received an additional week of hunting opportunity.

Many small game hunters would not be positively effected by this, but it might cause less rift than making deer season extend farther into January.

Have to admit, that is a good point and something I didn't think about. Come to think of it I didn't even know the regs were written like that, but I've never attempted to hunt 'yotes during deer season either. I wouldn't want to intrude on the predator hunter's season.

The government has nothing to do with bowhunters wanting their season opened earlier or extended latter imo,Its a group of deer hunters wanting their weapon of choice given preference over other methods with the old tired line of it wont impact the harvest #s lol

if 7 doesnt do you than you need to kill 15, simple solution hunt more when its open. we eat deer every week at least once or twice and 12-14 will do me from september to end of july to august for 5 people in the house so i know i need to kill at least twelve and we do in the time frame the seasons are open.

leave it alone or if anything open it earlier. would love to kill a velvet buck without going to ky. the only bad thing is thst it could clash with dove season. and if you are almost out of meat already, after killing 7 may be a good idea to take a day or two off to kill more. sounds like yal eat a freakin ton of venison so a simple solution is to kill more or to get in with people that can give some to you. open it early seems like a much better solution rather then keep it open later.

Well whether it will happen or not, there will be someone who doesn't like it!! I see great points from both side of the fence but for me like many others, we don't get to hunt 7 days a week anytime we want. We don't have 3,000 deer per acre so the harvest might not be up for us!! I wasn't going to say it and leave it open ended so people would rip me but..... wait for it..... wait for it.... I wouldn't mind them extending till Jan 31st!! That's just me and if they don't, no big deal either!! Hope everyone has a blessed day!!

For the sake of an argument the coyote hunters get to hunt year round.

There will always be some "unhappy" with however the chips fall, with or without any changes. There is no perfect way, and no way to please all.

Just my opinion, regarding any season changes, high priority should be placed on overall herd health, followed by to what extent should a small minority of hunters be "catered to" at the expense of the largest majority of hunters. In this scenario, I'd define the largest majority of hunters as all the deer hunters who do not bowhunt, and also include all the small-game hunters who do not deer hunt.

With this perspective, I cannot see adding any additional hunting days that would only allow a small minority of deer hunters true additional opportunity, i.e any additional days should be archery/muzzleloader/gun, not "archery only". As stated previously, something of this nature could be done by opening the "archery only" season segment 7 days earlier, the "archery/muzzleloader" segment 7 days earlier, the "archery/muzzleloader/gun" segment 7 days earlier ---- while continuing to close "deer" season following the first weekend of January. Such a change would provide ALL deer hunters an additional 7 days of deer hunting opportunity.

Personally, I'd prefer no season segment changes at all, and am fine with how they are at present.

One other thing.

In the coming years, there are going to be increasing opportunities for "archery only" deer hunters because of many areas (growing municipalities and communities) out-lawing hunting with a firearm within their boundaries. Somewhat an example of this is the President's Island WMA, where all deer hunting is "archery only" due to its proximity to the City of Memphis. What I'm saying is that even though TWRA may declare it's "gun" season, local ordinance may declare "archery only".

Thus, in the coming years in many localities, gun deer hunters are going to be losing hunting opportunities as archery deer hunters gain them via local ordinances limiting the deer hunting to archery over public safety concerns. While I believe many of these safety concerns are over-stated and may be more about gun phobias than public safety, I fully expect to see some entire counties become "archery only" for deer hunting.

Splitting hairs here and I understand what you are saying, but to be 100% correct:

TWRA did not deem President's Island to be archery because of its proximity to Memphis. Rather, the Port of Memphis, who own the property, did not want gunfire on their land. There is a private hunting club on PI who hunt with guns and TWRA does not restrict this.

Local municipals can ban the discharge of firearms within the city limits, however, state law trumps local ordinances and the state has no laws addressing hunting in proximity to homes, cities, etc. Therefore, state laws override any restrictions a city, neighborhood etc might place on hunting activities (including the discharge of firearms) unless a TWRA agents determines that you are doing something unsafe or against the law. This matter has been to the TN Supreme Court twice now and lost both times. You can legally hunt within the city limits where the discharge of firearms is banned. You may have to defend this action in court and pay for any legal service, but it is legal on the state level.

Yes, you are correct, and what you point out is why I said "somewhat" an example of this is President's Island. \:\)
I'd further speculate the primary reason the property owners don't want gunfire is still due to the proximity to downtown Memphis, and we can expect a growing number of property owners to only allow hunting with archery equipment on their property. As I understand it, TWRA would be fine with allowing shotguns/muzzleloader on PI similarly to how they do on the Oak Ridge WMA. But in both cases, the property owners are further restricting the weapon choices (note much of Oak Ridge WMA is also archery-only).

Regarding "you may have to defend this action in court", I'd say it's more like you generally "will" should you be caught firing your deer rifle within the city limits of the larger TN cities.

Since a municipality has an ordinance against firing a firearm within it's limits, you would be in violation of that, and up to you to prove you're hunting to their satisfaction? Otherwise, couldn't most anyone escape serious weapons' charges simply by claiming to be hunting?

Just my opinion, regarding any season changes, high priority should be placed on overall herd health, followed by to what extent should a small minority of hunters be "catered to" at the expense of the largest majority of hunters. In this scenario, I'd define the largest majority of hunters as all the deer hunters who do not bowhunt, and also include all the small-game hunters who do not deer hunt.

With this perspective, I cannot see adding any additional hunting days that would only allow a small minority of deer hunters true additional opportunity, i.e any additional days should be archery/muzzleloader/gun, not "archery only". As stated previously, something of this nature could be done by opening the "archery only" season segment 7 days earlier, the "archery/muzzleloader" segment 7 days earlier, the "archery/muzzleloader/gun" segment 7 days earlier ---- while continuing to close "deer" season following the first weekend of January. Such a change would provide ALL deer hunters an additional 7 days of deer hunting opportunity.

Personally, I'd prefer no season segment changes at all, and am fine with how they are at present.

Doskil,
Because as soon as deer season opens it is then illegal to coyote hunt with anything other than what is legal for deer.
So you either have to use a bow, or a muzzleloader or rifle when they come in season, but you also have to abide by the blaze orange laws as well.

I love to deer hunt as much as anyone but I would be against extending deer season any farther into the year.

Open it Sept 1 like KY does.

For the sake of an argument the coyote hunters get to hunt year round.


Yeah try calling one up in July and if you can, please tell me how.

Why not have a "rifle only" so we can have the woods "all to ourselves" like the archery hunters already get \:\)

I never done much predator calling but I did watch a show were they were calling and killing a few in the summer months. Like I said I know little about predator hunting.But I do appreciate the guys that do it. I was just pulling your chain.

while coyote season is open yr round, most seasoned callers do not call in the summer months. teh season is basically jan 15th ,(after the final juvenile) until march 20th, when the juvenle turkey season starts. after that they begin to whelp and raise their young.
