More Deer Hunitng in Kentucy sign now

More Deer means More Hunting
The deer population is growing in the state of Kentucky. You can see this as you drive along the road, or as you see a deer in your headlights as you are about to total your car. Farmers see the deer as they destroy their crops. This petition is dedicated to longer deer seasons and an increase in the bag limit for the state of Kentucky. Tom Barnes, University of Kentucky extension wildlife specialist, said the states deer population has doubled during the past 20 years. Kentucky is now home to approximately 1 million deer. (http://www.extension.org/pages/Deer_Overpopulation_Causes_Problems) In hunting zones 2, 3, and 4, a hunter can only shoot one antlered deer, and three does. In hunting zone 1, a hunter can shoot one antlered deer and an unlimited number of doe. Kentuckys seasons are short as well, Modern rifle is two weeks, Archery is five months, and Muzzle loader is 10 days. In the state of Georgia, a hunter can shoot up to 12 deer in a season; their modern rifle is almost three months compared to Kentuckys two week. In the state of Tennessee a hunter can shoot up to 3 antlered deer in all three units. In unit A, a hunter can shoot up to 4 does during archery and muzzle loader, and modern gun depends on the quota table. In unit B, a hunter can shoot 2 does in archery, 1 on muzzleloader, and modern gun depends on the quota table In unit L, a hunter can shoot 3 a day for all season. Another thing to consider is that with Kentuckys weird weather (i.e. it being really warm this season) the two week season is not falling in the best hunting time What can Kentuckians do to help battle this growing population? That is the purpose of this petition, to change the hunting regulations and balance deer population. Another thing to consider is that with Kentuckys weird weather (i.e. it being really warm this season) the two week season is not falling in the best hunting time.
