Whats the Big Deal of hunting PI anyway?


Very large deer that see very little hunting pressure. Couple that with such a close proximity to a major city....


So what your saying is every one wants to hunt there cause the bucks are bigger due to limited amount of them being killed


High density of deer, very low hunting pressure not only on the island itself, but the immediate area which is mixed industrial, agriculture, flood plain and residential (state park and golf course, too). Plenty of food, cover and lack of pressure with area genetics that tend to produce mass.


So TN can raise bigger bucks if you limit the number
of bucks killed......Didn't think that could happen


I doubt the bucks are much "bigger" then anywhere else in the surrounding area. But there is a high density of deer (I think it may have been estimated at 100 deer per square mike at one point), therefore there are more bucks. With very limited pressure (less than 30 bucks killed a year), there are more "big" bucks than your average property. But, having thought about it for a few years and having hunted on several of the management hunts, I believe the allure is the exclusivity of the access as much asit is any other factor. PI is no magical place. It's ugly, polluted, stinky, nasty, and mosquito infested. The buck success rate is far less than 50%. I see no need to apply the management or access practices to any other WMA, much less statewide.

PI: it's cool in someways, but WAY overrated in other ways and certainly has it's on set of problems and shortcomings as a management area. It is what it is.

I wouldn't eat anything that walked on President's Island, that's for sure.
