    Would anyone else like to see a early modern firearm season?:p I'm talking 1 day. Kind of a bang to start the season off. You know like thunder over Louisville kicks off the derby festivities. How awesome would it be to pop that velvet buck from 300 yards out! :cool:

    That would be awesome but they should make all deer killed that day be checked at a check station and not telechecked. That way it would keep everyone honest.

    Great ideas guys! I know it's to late for this year but maybe we can get a petition going for next season.

    I say open gun season on On Oct 1st and end it on Dec 1st. That way we can hunt some of the prime time the high and mighty bowhunters get to hunt.

    What about if you take a turkey in august with a crossbow, you get an extra buck tag good Sept. 1st thru Oct 31st? Dogs, rifle, it doesn't matter.

    Not sure what type of ML your using but there is no way it compares to my 416 Ruger!

    That is 2 of the best ideas that I have heard to help energize deer season

    Here we go with the check station b.s. again. I grew up hunting in TN and still hunt down there. Most times I have to drive past my in-laws farm (where I do my butchering) to get to the check station. It would be just as easy to drive to the house and not check that deer in as it is in Kentucky to drive a deer home without telechecking it. Check stations and telecheck just keep the honest man honest. They don't do anything to deter the guy that was going to poach a deer anyway.

    I like the check station system because you get chance to see what other folks are bringing in, but otherwise it's a pain in the arse. Since TN started allowing you to check in deer online or at the check station, I quit going to check stations. It saves me about 25 miles of driving and about an hour of wasted time.

    Absolutely not. Things are perfect the way they are. Why mess up a good thing?

    I'd only support a weekend-long early rifle season if it helped KDFWR make extra money. I think the best way for KDFWR to raise a LOT of money is by making the early rifle season for non-residents only. Maybe give the NR's a "bonus" buck tag they could use on that weekend.
