    Wish it would....

    Why is it that NC cannot or won't adopt some of these changes? What are opponents to this actually arguing?

    The wildlife commission conducted a large survey last summer to determine what it is that deer hunters actually want in the different parts of the state. We may find out that things are the way they are for good reason, or that the majority of hunters actually want something different. I'm just hoping that if the majority want a change, the vocal minority won't be able to squash it.

    Ohio's gun season is 1 week only and you can only take 1 buck per season no matter with what, bow, gun or mz...

It's because their hunting is that good. I'm not saying we could ever become an Iowa, but we possibly have the potential to become a Kentucky or a Tennessee.
    or VA for that matter..... some areas are shotgun/ML only, and no baiting...... As much as I like to corn, a large # of next year bucks fall at a corn pile in NC.

    Same struggle here in WV, surrounded by states with good deer management but our DNR is afraid of change and loss of revenue so we still have the 3 buck limit.
    The last time I walked through the swamp, I stood up on a cypress stump, I listened close and I heard the ghost of Osceola cry
