    Id say that the population will go down in those counties in Ky if they put in a 6 week gun season like Tennessee has.
    Maybe they need to have some amish hunt those counties for a couple of years.

    Me either. That's pretty crazy. I know Alabama has a 2+10 limit, and I wonder the same about them. IDK, maybe people get sick of laying down does and having to cut them all up. I do, kinda, and I only kill 4-6 deer a year.

    absolutely True. And they see things a bit different as I understand it as far as bag limits, seasons and trespassing.

    I've heard this a lot here, but don't have any personal experience with them. Other than the Mennonite beekeeper that I buy stuff from, that is. But, living in a community with a heavy Amish and Mennonite presence, I suppose that might change. If it's true, seems they'd be easy prey for the law...

    Curious if we shouldn’t wipe out the deer population in adjacent counties to cdw areas. Meaning unlimited open harvest till further notice and no bag limits. The idea would be Like a fire brake.

    Didn't they pretty much do that in Michigan, or Wisconsin when it hit there?

    No idea. Just seems I recall one of those states absolutely killing the hell out of deer in hopes of wiping it out........
