I wish we would open bow season the 1st weekend in September like Ky. I would love a chance at a TN velvet buck.

I would be all for more green in November, but then I'm from WI and us bowhunters always have about the first 20 days to ourselves. Minnesota's rifle season always opens around the beginning of November and therefore, occurs during the peak of the rut. Having discussed this with many people who hunt both states, they all feel as though WI has a much stronger buck population. Both in terms of quality and quantity.

Do you guys think that a later muzzy/gun season would improve the herd? Or do you think the herd is totally fine the way it is?

I am completely neutral on this because I have not hunted one day in TN. Rather, I am just curious what you all think.

Much of TN already has a more than adequate buck age structure. TN hunters are not over-harvesting bucks because the gun seasons occur during the rut. The areas of the state that do not have an adequate buck age structure generally have very high hunter densities, or low deer densities, or both. So the problem isn't when the gun seasons occur, it is simply too many hunters per deer in that area.

Give me the green, I guess I'll take my bow thru most of the season, the first two weeks of Nov. is my best chance of arrowing a buck.

Personally I wouldn't hunt in the heat of September if I was paid to do it.

Who cares what the colors are, all I know is we get to hunt A LOT! Glad i live in Tennessee.

Amen brother, instead of some complaining which weapon is in season, learn to use all of them and hunt the entire season!!!

I would like to see Muzz move back to the weekend of Thanksgiving to be closer to the rut and open Archery on 1 Oct. Sept is too hot.

Simple fix: Don't bow hunt till Oct. and you can carry a MZ all the way till Jan.
