Honest to God, what is next??!!! That is just unbeleivable! if it passes i'm done bowhunting WI (Good thing i don't think it will pass). bowhunting is one hundred times harder than rifle hunting. why do all the lazy rifle hunters keep asking for everyting to be fair? that's bs. it's kinda like how some rifle hunters want the rifle season during the middle of the rut. that's unbeleivably stupid too! Not only would that be bad for the deer herd (as other states have proven), the start of the rifle season is also a tradition and it shouldn't be changed just because people think it's unfair! that makes me soooo mad when people say that. they say the deer aren't in rut when the rifle season starts even though that's completely untrue! every year i've that i've seen bucks during rifle season, they've been doing some kind of rutting activity, from scraping to chasing. to be honest i wish i could bow hunt that time period when rifle season starts because it's one of the best time periods of the rut, and the bucks are really rutting hard then. People just don't understand or see this because they're stomping around the woods and doing drives. They're not gonna see rutting deer when they're scaring the crap out of the deer.
I'm not trying to lump gun hunters at all. i bow hunt rifle hunt and muzzleloader hunt, i was just trying to say that there are many gun hunters that only gun hunt and want everything handed to them, and just want to kill everything. there are many hard working rifle hunters (and im sure you're one of them) but there are some that just want the easy way, and think everything is unfair if they don't get it. they act like they can't pick up a bow as well (Maybe some can't but they can use a cross bow) when all they have to do is do it. there aren't laws saying they can't. They want everything fair and better for them when in reality they are just lazy.
Mntmn, do you have any quick stats on bucks during bowseason harvested vs bucks during gun season? I'd be curious to see the numbers against the # of registered hunters.
