Great job the DNR has done. Only one Buck per Hunter helps a lot

I live in a zone 2 County. While I am in 100% agreement with the 1 buck minimum, we think that we need to add additional antlerless deer to the bag limit. Add additional antlerless only season as well

First day of hunting - the second Saturday of the rifle season. Saw more than 40 deer, 18 were bucks with antlers, and 6 were aged 3.5 or older, five that would have grossed 130+ -- all in four hours

Zone 1 is over populated with poor genetic bucks. The 1 buck limit causes people to pass on management quality bucks and harvest good genetic bucks only. Recomend 1 buck with bow and 1 with rifle.

Buck quality is largely determined by the land that is hunted. Ky Has the genetic and age to produce WR deer. The B+ is do to fact that our modern rifle season falls in the middle of the rut.

The further west you go the better the habitat and in turn the better the deer quality and hunting. 1 buck limit and public land management critical to why I love hunting KY. Keep up the good work!

It is not the Ky management plan that hurts quality. Where I hunt it is poor genetics

Modern gun season should be after the rut not during it. Would let more mature bucks breed

I like the one buck limit that we've had for many years. As a bowhunter, I'd love for modern gun season to be shotgun or muzzy only and start later in the season to allow more bucks to reach maturity
