I'd like to see the East Texas changes, but not likely I'll get to the Panhandle or buy a muzzle loader.

Very interesting about the spike vs unbranched antler. That throws people off when it comes to the extended season. During regular season if it is unbranched on one side it is legal but the extended season it must be a true spike. Sounds like they will make an unbranched on one side will be legal in the extended season. Not sure how I feel about that. I wish they would just make it spikes and 13 inch+ spread for regular and spike/doe only in extended. Being selfish here but seeing a kid or now adult take a 3 year old deer with half a 19 inch rack broken off cause it is legal is not best management. Take a doe or spike...

When are they going to implement the Special Early Velvet Spike One Antlered Cross Eyed Sling Shot Season? This is just getting ridiculous in my opinion.

Kinda hard for some to take a doe in east Texas if they don't bow hunt. One weekend season doesn't give you much time to get it done.

Nothing has divided the deer hunting community more than separate seasons based on hunting methods. And there is no question that it was done in large part to create new markets for equipment. If the decision were mine, there would be a single season that included all methods.

I'm glad to see they are defining "unbranched antler" since that has caused a lot of confusion. I would almost bet it will be an antler with no point, which is defined as at least 1" long. If so, it will be like the 13" rule. Hunters will be checking deer with binoculars wondering if it is 1" or 3/4".

I would love to have a time during gun season to kill a doe in Karnes county. Only can shoot a foe with bow during archery at the moment. Even if I only had one week to do it and could only shoot one I'd be thrilled. I'm not into killing young spikes for a second deer every year and killing a 13inch or better every year just doesn't happen.
