If I had one chance at a trophy buck hunt I'd still go to Wisconsin, Iowa, or Illinois.

DEPENDS on both how you define "one chance" and a "trophy" buck. \:D

Glad we could all come to a gentlemans agreement more or less.

Roost, I want to be on record for mentioning MO on page 3. Great rut gun hunting IMO.

I'm hearing one of the reasons KY is climbing
higher in B&C deer deer is IL has a 2 buck limit
and way more outfitters that any other state. They
are also dropping there min. scores years back
many outfitters were at 140" now at 125".

There season is prime food source hunting too.

And most don't realize Iowa has a 3 Buck limit
for residents, Kansas has a rifle season but again
It's late season and food hammers then, plus
many bow kills are over corn piles.

I like our unit l seasons/ regulations just like they are, I just wish we could extend the rifle season another 2 weeks. I would hate a one buck per year quota, seeing as how I can kill 3 mature bucks if I choose now.

I am wondering how northern MO gets left out of these conversations?
If I wanted to go on a top end rifle or bow hunt it would be as close to that IA border as I could get........


In my opinion, northern MO, with its more flat, open habitat, gets a lot more harvest pressure than the big buck areas of KY.

Doesn't KY allow for hunting over bait as well...not that I am for it, nor have I done it, but would that have anything to do with some of this extra food supplementation?

Private land yes, public land no is how I understand it.

Does any one in this conversation think that tenn. will ever be considered a state for trophy bucks,do we have the quality of bucks here now or in the near future to draw non-residents to the state of tenn.and pay $300 for license to hunt? If so please fill my arrogant attitude in on how it is goin to happen.Do we need more bigger and better crops or is it the buck limit,give me some advise on how i can help our state.If i need to stack them like fire wood i will or go for 1 per yr. IM ALL EARS !!!!!!!!!


I certainly hope TN never gets known as a trophy deer state. As soon as that happens land prices skyrocket to the point that locals can't buy any and you have out of state hunters crawling all over you. Leases would go up to the ceiling too. I'd rather have nothing but forkhorns myself than to be known as a trophy state. Regarding high license costs and being willing to pay them, I personally DO pay the out-of-state license fee every year but I am a Tennessean who just happened to move to Alabama for a job. TN has and always will be where I consider home to be. I don't particularly like the fact that I have to pay so much to hunt my own land but that's just the way it is.
