Im far from being an Eliteist Bowhunter as I hunt every season, but would hate to see TN do the same. I like the different seasons and the challenges that come with each one.

I hunt all seasons as well. Would like to have bow "open up again" after gun season closes. Say thru the month of January.

IMO its like the "religion needs it own section" thread.. I wish we had it here.. i'd hunt with my .308 the whole time.. BUT.. if you guys want to go out with a long bow and wooden arrows.. more power to you.. I'm sure not going to look down on you.. there is no telling how many thousands of dollars I have spent on bows,crossbows, arrows,broadheads,scopes,bolts,sabots,muzzle loaders,powder,bullets,primers and the list goes on and on and on.. that I could have spent on other outdoor gear I want but will never get like a electric 4x4 utv.. to be exact.. I wouldnt even mind paying twra and fee to hunt during the normal primitave seasons with my rifle..

I never ever ever thought I would say this but.... I would be against this.

After seeing what a week of gun hunting does to mature bucks in KY I would much rather have what we have now in TN.

As Buckwild would say though... YMMV.

I don't think it matters - set a season limit on bucks per segment; i.e. segment 1 is one month, one buck. Segment 2 one month,one buck and so on. Those who want meat will shoot one and get out of the woods.

It's just like when crossbows were made legal. Tales of endless slaughter, the end of hunting as we know it, deer being killed in drive-by crossbow shootings.

The harvest didn't change, and now very few people care what you hunt with in bow season.

I would be ok with segmented, regulated seasons. And yes, I'd use a rifle the whole time.

As this new law is stated in Mississippi, I think it does more harm than good, and will create more division between hunters.

On the other hand, might see it differently if it were an across-the-board change applying to all lands equally, i.e. deer season simply opens and closes on said dates, use whatever weapons you prefer. The big flaw in the Mississippi change is that it doesn't apply to those public lands that are otherwise hunted "same as statewide". Also keep in mind the deer are considered a public, not a private resource, and the average buck roams over thousands of acres, usually not spending all his time on any one person's property.

Not saying I want to see this in TN, as do see merit in having an early archery only season. However, there is also merit in simply have a "deer season", any weapon you prefer.

It would be fine with me if TN's deer season was archery-only from the opening thru October, then any weapon Nov 1st until close. But this should apply equally to private lands and public lands that are hunted "same as statewide".
