My hair hurts after reading all of this garb. You hunt the way you want to and I'll hunt the way I want to and with any luck we will both be happy at the end of the day. If you only want to kill 1 buck or even 2 bucks, don't let a 3 buck limit get in your way. It's real easy. Don't pull the trigger no more. Problem solved.

instead of changing the bag limit how likely would it be to change the season starts? people please don't get me wrong I am happy with them I am just curious. im sure there is a thread about it I just haven't found it.

Is a 2 buck limit likely or just a rumor at this point?

unit B had a 2 buck limit for several years. it didn't help. and a 3 buck limit doesn't hurt.

To pseshooter300
There are areas here in southern "L" that Your description “running around like rats” is correct “big rats” would be better call though (ha). I took a buck with my Ford on the way to the lease one morning. Another member took one with his Chevy on the way home the next evening “AND” two days latter as we were standing by our gate locking up a car took a doe not 150 feet up the road. As I’m sitting here composing this return note there are 11 walking by across from my house, no kidding man. Check out hunt swaps forum, your more then welcome to come over next season a take a couple to the “locker” if you like. Send a note and we can set up.

Follow up:
Most don't relize how well they have it here in Tennessee overall. The DNR does a great jop with regulating the resource, not a easy task. Granted we don’t have as many of the “monsters” here as other states, but it has to do more with agriculture then setting buck limits. I for one relocating to TN was one of my best moves.

It really depends on what part of Unit L you are talking about. In some of the mixed hardwood and agricultural regions of Unit L, deer densities are the highest in the state (although not outrageously high like in some of the Northern states like WI, Lower MI, and parts of NY). And by "high" I mean perhaps 30+ deer per square mile (unlike some Northern states that have pockets of 60-100 deer per square mile). In the big sections of ridge-and-hollow hardwoods of Unit L, deer densities are still better than Unit B, but not that high. More like 20-25 deer per square mile. And considering the rugged terrain and forest cover, hunters don't see that many deer while hunting. Sighting rates of 0.5 to 1.0 deer per hunting hour are common for this region. In the mixed ag regions, sightings of 1-3 deer per hour of hunting are fairly common.

Yep,there are more,not surprising to see 10 or 12 in an afternoon.Not every time of course.Heck,I see 10 to 15 deer about everyday,just driving back and forth to work.

I perfect example of how different deer density and deer observability can be between different areas of Unit L, even nearby areas. Football Hunter's place isn't that far from my place. However, his place includes bottomland agriculture as well as upland hardwoods. My place is all upland hardwoods. We've NEVER seen 10-12 deer in a single hunt, let alone consider it common. In fact, even in a great year, we rarely exceed seeing deer on 50% of our hunts, and then only see 1-3 deer in a hunt where we do see deer. In a great year, we see 0.5 deer per hour (basically 1 deer for every 2 hours of hunting). In a poor year, we see around 0.25 deer per hour (1 deer for every 4 hours of hunting).
