The state doesn't like you zone 3 and 4 people. They give you a shorter season because your not as important as us zone 1 guys.Get to rifle hunt two weeks while zone three and four only ten days. I pay as much for my tags. Either a they must pay more or b I pay less.
Boone or Fayette? Help us decide which county to choose.

You hit right on the head, I know our deer in Johnson Co couldn't handle a longer gun season. there wouldn't be anything left for next year if it stayed open longer.I live in and hunt in a zone 4 county and I'm glad gun season is only 10 days! I'm not knocking gun hunting, took my biggest deer ever this year with a gun, but I just don't think the deer population around here can withstand an extra week of gun season. Not yet anyway.
I would be happy to trade my county's zone 1 status with your county's zone 3 status. This way I would not be plagued by every Tom Dick and Harry, instate or out of state, swarming to hunt around me. I would actually see more deer, including all ages of bucks, the next year than the previous year instead of the reverse. If I had the numbers like we had at one time, then 2 weeks of Modern Gun along with MZ and our forever archery season would be plenty upon plenty of time to kill a nice one along with a doe or two. Be careful of what you wish for, just my opinion.
