special early buck season

i just e-mailed the PGC asking them for an early buck season beginning August 15th for a two week period.

"primitive" weapons only

Flintlock, recurve, long bow, revolver. with all applicable stamps (muzzleloader, archery)

no scopes, no fiber optic sights, barrel length no more than 8 inches

florescent orange when moving and a band at your stationary position

NO DEER DRIVES

special permit fee of $30.00 in addition to the required stamps (muzzleloader, archery)

NO ADDITIONAL TAG, use the one that came with your license

maybe a limited draw, maybe over the counter.

who wouldn't want a chance at a buck in velvet. if the weather is hot the deer wont be moving all day anyway.


THIS will increase revenue for the PGC and added opportunity for the sportsman

well, i figured if that 250,000 hunters bought a pheasant stamp at $25 a pop and 250,000 hunters bought an early season buck only permit at $30 a pop that would put

13,750,000 (13 million 750 thousand dollars) in the PGC coffers

win-win

I like it.... How awesome would it be to kill a great buck you know you will see before hard horns turns them nocturnal...


Also love the NO DEER DRIVES...................!

I don't think this is a good idea. Like what was posted in some of the other threads they should just make all of October a muzzleloader/ archery buck season and cancel the first two weeks of November.. With that being said I have been considering turning my attention to squirrel hunting this year instead of deer.


Just a hypothetical question here........Say they do make inlines legal for buck in October this season........would I be able to carry a shotgun and an inline with me at the same time just in case I happened to cross paths we a slammer buck while I am out hunting bushy tails ?

I am all for this and would pay more than $30 for that tag. I don't shoot doe. When I lived in Georgia they had seasons just like this for muzzleloader and pistols. I miss getting a crack at a buck with those weapons before they have been hunted for six weeks. The only problem is my revolver has a 10 inch barrel.
