That's my plan. I don't like the idea of putting guys with shotguns in the woods during our bow season. A little cold front and a little prerut activity would be more than some hunters could handle with a slug gun in their hands. Could be wrong, just seems like it will be hard to regulate. I wish we could take both birds in the spring, one of each sex.
Yeah I understand WHY they are allowing the use of shotguns... I just don't agree with WHEN. October is a magical time to get in close on a mature whitetail because the hunting pressure on him is relatively low in bow season.. throw in a few shotgunners chasing turkeys and the deer will be pretty wirey before the rut comes in. Could effect our deer hunting more than many realize.
