NC is proposing opening deer season next year and allowing hunters to use the weapon of their choice!! this means for us bowhunters after the first day you might as well give up on bow because the deer will be hard to hunt with guns popping everywhere! I have talked to many hunters at Bass Pro and Gander mtn and no one i have talked to is for this ! bass pro in concord had a meeting about the issue and only allowed people who were in the industry and that owned shops inside . Heard they had a guy from CO who hadbeen to Raleigh fighting the issue and he was tell ing the people what he thought would happen! The Dept of Insurance is behind all of this they say too many deer are getting hit by cars every year ! Maybe they need to increase the bag limit? Bow hunters need to fight this if you are for it ! You can read more on the website or the regulations digest !
