From the opening day of gun season through the end of the deer season on private land...provided that the hunter still buys a PW license.

The final nail in the coffin for the PW season? I don't have strong feelings about this either way but I thought it might make an interesting discussion piece.

Like! The PW rules were rediculous anyway. Anyone want to buy a slightly used HR in .35 Remington or a CVA APEX in .35 Whelen? LOL.

Like you, I really couldn't care less. However it does highlight the slipery slope argument against tinkering with archery season. I use a state defined primitive .35 for most of the season anyway. Unless I am going somewhere that a 300 yard shot is expected, I just assume hit them with that big old .35 chunk of lead!

With the early PW gone, it moves the gun opener back to the traditional date

The early PW season is not set by the legislature; rather the MDWFP under a special "suplus" law. I don't see anything here that would negate that option.

I do like this. It does illustrate that these regs are indeed all about the money. I will still hunt with my recently purchased CVA Apex in .35 Whelen cause I'm growning rather fond of the gun. I'm glad my dad will be able to hunt with a caliber that doesn't have the recoil of the larger PW calibers since he's getting older now.

The original purpose for primitive weapons in the first place was the now convoluted term ?opportunity? at a time when deer numbers were far less than what they are today. People wanted to spend more time in the woods without depleting the resource. Archers had the most liberal seasons because they had the lowest ratio of man hours to harvest. So looking at this from strictly a deer management prospective it would seem logical that primitive weapons and archery have outlived their usefulness.

But from a deer hunters prospective, and they are the ones who fund this engine, deer hunting is way more emotional than logical. It is a SPORT and not a BUSINESS although certain entities are doing their best to change this. Top racks bring top dollar and has a trickling down effect starting at the price of land. What is a $200,000 hunting club, or a high fence facility, or even a high hunting lease worth without big racks? Heck hunters lose sacred ground by simply posting pictures of big racks on the internet.

It seems reasonable to think that the easier it is to ?buy? a big rack the more aggravated this problem will become. And look at all the mess that starts coming out of the state legislature. Sibbyu said it best on here last year when foretold that these people know what they are doing and will win, like consuming a whole elephant, one small bite at a time.

I think the answer is relatively simple. Anything that reeks of commercialization of our wildlife resources needs to be rejected and strongly contested. And if you don?t think the majority of whats going on at the state capital right now has a strong offensive odor to it, well, then, good day and good night!
