Ok most seem not to be for a late season bowhunting. No prob, let's make it a extra tag option. If you want to hunt u buy the tag if have sportsman lic then you can hunt.Bucks can b taken if you have not killed three.This way you can hunt if you want and TWRA will make a lil extra...

I must be the only one to think its ironic to see so many people worried about shooting a buck that has shed his horns, especially when the opinion on this site is to keep your opinion to yourself about what kind of buck a hunter shoots.

To answer the question or at least take a guess at it, I'd think it has more to do with tradition than anything. MS and AR have been that way for as long as I can remember. The season opening dates are mostly based on tradition also. The closing date has fluctuated a little.

No particular reason. It's just the way we've always done it and most hunters are satisfied with how we are managing our deer program (87% satisfied). With those numbers, unless there is a real good reason to make a change, we probably are going to stick with what works.
BGG, Thanks for the explanation. I guess in an ideal world one would hope that the science, pros/cons, public opinion, etc. would all be weighed and then decisions made on a matter like this, but I guess funding only allows TWRA to do so much. I used to live in Arkansas and from my observation the extended season did not harm the deer herd and it provided a little extra time in the woods for the die hards who are crazy about the sport. No gripes with the way Tennessee currently sets the seasons, I had just never heard it explained.

typically a person who shoots a buck, knows what type of buck he is and makes a conscience decision to harvest him. most bucks shot that have already shed, are mistaken for does and not what the hunter desired to harvest. apples to oranges

I know there are more arguments to not extend deer season into late Jan. but after a 2 week ML and 6 weeks of gun I dont think a few weeks of archery hunting is going to hurt much.

I doubt I'd even go. I also would be afraid of shooting bucks that had dropped their antlers.

Id go. But I would likely be a bachelor, unemployed, and broke. At least I know how to knap and could possibly barter.

Some part of that sounds pretty good.

I'm not in good enough physical condition to extend deer season! I'm drinking an extra cup of coffee every morning now to make it! Plus I can't live without January and February rabbit hunts and its also a pretty good time to go ahead and start fishing to.

As it is now, I travel to southern Alabama and hunt during the rut in January. I would love to continue archery hunting in Tennesseee through the end of January. I usually fail to kill my target number of does and maybe this would help. I have no worries of shooting a buck that dropped his horns.
