I'm living in Tennessee now and came across this article on a news website. What does everyone think about this?

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WTVC) - Beginning Friday, Tennessee hunters will have their first-ever opportunity to participate in Tennesseeís inaugural August deer hunt that some have referred to as the "velvet buck hunt." The three-day season (Aug. 24-26) is open statewide -- only for archery hunters and only on private lands for antlered bucks.

Could make for good conversation for your first post. Welcome to the THF!

I donít see any reason why it would be a bad thing unless to many bucks get shot during a full season, no idea what the buck to doe ratio is up there. Lots of people dream of shooting a big buck in velvet.

Yep, Wyoming archery season in Sept has folks chasing velvet bucks in some areas.
Sounds like added pressure on your deer though.

welcome

Are the numbers so high that they need to apply additional hunting pressure on the population?

If a hunter is only allowed one buck then it won't change much other than pressure on the herd on private land. So the owner or hunter can control that also. If he tags out early then the land is left un-pressured by the hunter the rest of the season. Hunting deer in summer heat patterns on food sources can be difficult due to time of day they move and amount of eyes in the group.
