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
