2020-2021. Looks to me like the crossbow and muzzleloader hunters are taking a lot of doe meat home.

Maybe they should separate the seasons more. Give Trad/spear September then filter in the compounds in October and the crossbow folks a couple weeks later.

Those “chip shot @ 200 yards” muzzleloaders sure are hard on doe too. Maybe just lump us into gun season since it’s too easy with those staggering numbers.

Or we can just agree the animosity has nothing to do with deer numbers or enjoying the outdoors, just pride. I kill deer with a compound too. Makes feel like a lady but at least it gets me out there and it’s easy.

Since you can "legally " harvest unlimited does in Z1 I would expect the doe harvest to be higher. For the comment about "not liking competition for hunting spots", if you're in my deer hunting spot, your trespassing and will be treated accordingly. In closing, stay where you have permission, follow the laws, and IDGAF!

you really believe the harvest numbers are accurate with our current system of recording harvests. That would be like using cnn headlines to support your argument.

I’m honest, figured most folks like you were too. Reckon I buy my extra tags like the rest of y’all. Lot of people that are proud of providing for their family, with the way social media is, I’d say they buy their tags, call 1800chkgame, post their pictures.

If anyones poaching you think they have a spotlight mounted on a crossbow or their wheelbow? Doubt they are poaching with either nor a muzzloader. Total not checked? No more than get run over by cars and not reported.

View attachment 105016 It’s all on their website. %1. Pretty significant as well. Sure they were all crossbowed from a combine cab.
You sure are a trusting feller. The government wouldn’t lie. Ask the Indians. I bet there are as many go un reported each season as there are reported. The crossbow was known as a poachers weapon. Decade ago it was the running joke. Some one would say “got a good one with my crossbow.” Answer would be did cam hit your mirror. I believe the big buck killed in fort Wright was shot with a crossbow. Only weapon more suitable would be an air bow.

Those aren’t numbers made by the government. The numbers are reported by the people in the state of Kentucky.

So you know a lot of poachers and automatically the good honest sportsmen and women in this great state are all liars and poachers but mostly just the ones with crossbows.

Never have I seen so much biased ignorance by a group of people that literally use the next easiest tool in the toolbox. I can see Trad bow shooters ruffling feathers as a joke but to vehemently hate your fellow outdoorsmen is just sad.

I’m out on this one until somebody takes a kid hunting and remembers what it’s really about.
