These are the two HB that had to do with restructuring the seasons and allowing DMAP to use whatever they wanted to from Oct 1st-Jan 31st

I for one am very happy...

I am just tired of them dodging the issues.. I liked the bill.. I was looking forward to having the oppurtunity to take my son out in the woods a little earlier when it wasn't quite as cold.. But I have a feeling next year it will pass... To much pressure from MDWFP...

I think too much preassure against the MDWFP was it. The way the dept handled it was one of the main reasons I am against it but I am also a avid bow hunter as well. I would love for my dad to have two extra weeks to hunt since he does not hunt with a bow.

I used to bow hunt and thought it was a good idea to seperate the seasons until they started allowing compounds. I raled against it and wrote letters, no email or inernet back then, but the slide started anyway. Now there are some folks who ccall themselves archers and bownhunters who have never pulled a real bow and they don't want crossbows in the woods during "there" time. The entitlement mentallity is contagous. Give somene something or even loan it for an extended time and they begin to think it is there's.

Seasons are set to control the wildlife population and that should be the only thing governing it. When trained biologist say we need more hunters in the woods. The best way to put more hunters in the woods is to manipulate the seasons.

I would welcome any change that promotes more hunters in the woods with a weapon that allows humane kills. I was all for the move to open the restictions concerning primitive weapons. I applaude the move to extend gun seasons.

Regardless of any rule changes...we still have a lot of folks that refuse to harvest does...deer over population is getting to be a problem and too many hunters are not stepping up to the plate....it just aint "manly" to shoot a doe

Unfortunately by the time the gubermint imposes their will upon the situation it will already be a problem...

MDWFP screwed up the trial balloon

Whack and stack

I consider my self a bow hunter and I use a Compound Bow, honestly if I had to use a recurve/long bow I probably would not bow hunt but I might change my mind and get one to broaden my horizon. I can see where your stance is coming from with all the "elitist" talk going around and most of the people who call bow hunters that are not bow hunters and they don't like "our season" well it is everyone's season cause anyone can pick up a bow being compound/long/recurve bow and hunt but most people who I know that do not hunt during October either do not like the heat or are terrified of snakes. I for one do not mind either and like I have always said I would rather listen to a crossbow go off in archery season than a 30-06.

As far as the overpopulated deer herd there are other ways to get the numbers down. like a tagging system as where you can't kill a buck untill you kill a doe and inforce the law or lower the # of bucks you can kill to 2 and raise the # of does to 6-7 caust there are people out there that will kill as many deer that they can to fill there quota
I for one will take the first 3 does that I see when hunting season starts on Oct 1st and not worry about the bucks sure I would take a buck if he appears but I am out there doing my part. most of my friends dont kill does cause they want to clean them I always say I will clean them if they kill them.

I dont like when people dont kill deer just because they didn't feel like it I know it there right but like you said we need to thin the heard.

If they would have handled the way they came out and supported these bills alittle better there wouldn't have been such a up roar about it.

D, I wasn't trying to stir an already boiling pot but I see no difference between a compound and a crossbow. They both use mechanical advantage. I use a longbow and have used a recurve because that is what I was raised with and like to hunt with. I too, love the sound of a crossbow in the deer woods...as long he isn't within earshot of me.

The overpopulation can be handled differently. Too ofton our seasons are driven by emotion and not science. That is why we have people who still will not shoot does. I wish we had the number Wildlife Officers it would take to enforce a strict three doe before a buck limit. I would love to see Mississippi hunters unite behind the sport rather than behind their portion of it. It reminds me of people calling for assault weapon bans when the hunt with firearms that use the very same fireing mechanism.

All in all, the wildlife population suffers when we mix in politics. I hope they figure it out.

just wanted to hit on a few points here

1. I was against the bill if anyone cares but heres why
. the problems is their is over population issues in some areas of the state their are farms in madison county where they are told by biologist that they have to kill 100-200 deer the way the season is now their not doing it so it makes since they need more time.
. but their are other parts of the state where people don't have that kind of population they don't need to shoot that many if anything they need to shoot less.
. with the idiots we have in the woods who don't feel they should abide by the law now whats gonna stop them from shooting more deer than their already 10-15 little dink they should be ashamed of themselves what we need is more game wardens out their to lock these retarded a$$ holes up

2. I like compound bow hunting its surgical F-ing ninga murder up to 50yrds but I like the feel of a recurve in my hands for sure

Shooter I know you weren't stirring the pot. and I have nothing against the crossbows. I am just glad that for once something went right and the politics didn't do what they thought was right and listened to the people.
