You must be one of the inbred southern folk people speak of
, because I have NEVER said ban this or ban that, I have pushed for moving the 12-day firearms season out of the peak rut, keep archery season to bows, an keeping traditional season to weapons that are not semi autos (oh the horror)!!!!!! But bumping the firearms back would put more MATURE deer for EVERYONE to hunt, not just ONE person (I can't help you understand that), and still allow hunters to kill what they want!! You are likely better at aging deer you shoot
.....than you are at some others you may see. I don't know if the buck i shot this year was 3.5 or 4.5, I was leaning 3.5 and couple others said likely 4.5, don't care there was no one more pissed off than I was whether he was 3.5 or 4.5 or even if he was 8.5!!!! You may think the southern boys don't shoot 2.5 year bucks, but they most certainly do in Missouri if my buddies that hunt public know what a 110' deer looks like piled in trucks with MS, LA, AL, FL plates.
