KY is great hunting. I won't deny that. IMO the potential for a PY deer is significantly higher than TN. However, I think the ceiling or # of true top end deer (say 160 plus) is way below that of a lot of the rest of the mid west.

Example, I've been hunting Indiana for 2 years. All total I have hunted around 7 days. Ive killed a mid 140 and seen 2 bigger and passed 2 PY deer.

Hunting KY for 6 years I have not seen that many PY deer. Take it as anecdotal but it is my experience.

Why does anyone need to shoot more than 1 buck a yr ? if we want to fill our freezers lay the does down,and hold off for that big mature buck when he comes sneakin threw trying to find a doe to court for a few days.

I think it has all to do with there one buck a season and their season in general. great for trophy hunters sucks for non trophy hunters. for me personally I love it I hunted it once and it was pretty amazing the amount of deer/ big deer at that. will hunt it soon again.

Why do you need a car that goes faster than 60mph? Why do you need a gun that can hold more than 7 rounds of ammunition??

It is not a question of NEED. There are a lot of people, me included , that WANT to be able to kill more bucks. Personally, I think the 3 buck limit is too few, it should be at least 4 and probably 5.

If that is the case, then why do TN hunters, year in and year out, kill more mature bucks per square mile than KY hunters?

I'm not saying KY's 1 buck limit is doing any harm, but it obviously isn't helping hunters kill more mature bucks.

If that is the case, why is KY now the #1 state in the nation for B&C entries?

I just love it when someone else tells me what I SHOULD want or need from my hunting experience.

If that's what you want, have at it.

In my area, shooting any more does would be disastrous, considering bucks now outnumber does almost 2:1.

Why does anyone need to go hunting in the first place? You can buy meat at the store and antlers from deer farms.

KY is a good Trophy state with bigger deer per age class vs Tn and very likely a little better age structure as well! I think its funny how its now OK to constantly compare TN and KY data to prove points, when just a few yrs back when the Telecheck argument was on the table, it was touted to no end how useless KY data was and couldn't be trusted!!! LOL What changed???? Agendas??? ;\)
