    Oklahoma make a 6 point gun rule and 4 point archery rule along with 1 buck tag! Not enough mature deer in this state.

    In Vermont they should change from 2 points per side antler restrictions to at least 3.

    I would also agree with the being able to bowhuntin during gun season. It doesn't make much sense to restrict it on the two main seasons, 3 day weekend before thanksgiving and 4 day weekend after, and allow it the rest. The only thing I can't think is the volume of hunters may be a lot more during that time than the rest.

    Id love to see a 1 Buck limit in MI for 5 years than think about changing it. We have almost the same terrain and crops as WI, IL, IA and others. We have a bigger deer population than those other states and we have more state land and possibly more area of the state that u might consider good sanctuaries. Any buck in MI that makes it to 4 or 5 is a really big buck and very high scoring. We just have fewer percent of our deer herd 3 and older. To many people shoot year and a halfs. With a 1 buck limit they still could but they'd only get one not two. Therefore quite a few (not all) would wait for a deer to really get their heart rate going.

    There is a lot I would like to change. But seeing a lot of the responses I am glad that we don't have most of those (IL), no Sunday hunting? That's bull.
    I don't like how the gun season here is a split week. (3 days weekend before Thanksgiving and 4 days weekend, something like that.) I also don't like how you can't bow-hunt those days either even if you were orange. I would be happy with that if you just wore orange on those days.

    There are several smaller WMAs I would make bow only for deer and cut out the gun quota hunts. It has been my observation that placing several hundred gun hunters into an area of only a few thousand acres is not only dangerous, but totally screws up the rest of the season for people who want to bow hunt after the two quota hunt weekends. What deer aren't pushed out go nocturnal for the rest of the season.

    I wish South Dakota replaced its East River rifle season with a shotgun/muzzleloader season like Iowa.

    I don't think I'd change anything so far as deer tag regulations are concerned. I like being able to shoot two bucks. I would probably go with allowing archery equipment during gun season. I really don't see a good reason not to. WI, MO and other states allow it with no issues. Why not here?

    Outside of that, I'd get rid of the law that requires us to have our bow in a case while in a vehicle. IMO it's completely unnecessary. Haven't really heard of any drive-by shootings with a bow lately.
    This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Shorten the PA gun season to 1 week. Would also love to see Sunday hunting for archery seasons only (that should stir up the gun toting idiots here). Picking on the gun seasons, I'd also like to see a shotgun only rule here. There are WAY too many guys in the woods with high powered rifles its almost frightening.

    Good points. I dont get the rule about the case. I saw mounting system i want to put in my truck to hold my bow but i wouldnt be able to due to that rule.
