I find that post somewhat ironic. If you wanted people to give it a rest, then maybe you should not have posted another thread on the subject. You knew good and well someone would voice their opinion on why they feel a two buck limit would be better.

Just as I suspected - the majority of hunters do not want a 3-buck limit. Might as well round down to 2 and call it even.

Even with a 3 buck limit don't mean you have to limit out on 3 each year. If you want a 1 buck limit, limit yourself to 1 buck, if you want a 2 buck, limit yourself to 2.

Its not what happens in life, but how you react to it that matters.

That is absolutely correct, and that sentiment is overwhelming.

Due to our hunters desire to kill the maximum amount, as biologists, we need to be mindful of overharvest. Fortunately, we have not seen any indication of overharvest thus far. It's actually a simple concept. If we were to be overharvesting the yearlings, we would see a drop in the numbers or 2-1/2+ deer that are killed the subsequent years (because we over-killed them the year before). Since our numbers of older aged class deer have continued to rise, there's no evidence of harm to the resource. In fact, with the amount of deer and the amount of hunters we have in TN, limits are one of the least limiting factors.
If given the choice between education and regulation, I'll choose education every time.

The buck limit posts are in direct response to the posts calling for a reduction in the buck limit. The call for the reduction is not based on scientific evidence but on the belief that a reduction would put a "Shooter" behind every tree. No response to these types of posts is tantamount to supporting them. I believe scientific evidence does not support any change at this time.

I don't remember getting asked any of those questions

What % of the people sending in comments ask for 3 bucks? 2 bucks?
And does the commission see those %'s?

I've never been asked. However, I filled out my brother's survey once a few years ago. Never had even heard of a survey circulating or anything of that nature until a little post card showed up in his mail (he was going to toss it). Also, if you look at the response rate to the particulary survey set in question the response wasn't that great. But, I won't get into that because I get beat down for mentioning that fact. Plus, this particular survey I'm referring to lifetime sportsman license holders are not in the "pool" of survey participatants...only those people that buy licenses year to year. Maybe that practice has changed. As I said, the survey I filled out was a few years ago.
