Yep those TN numbers shock me as well. I know very few if any hunters that do not tag some type of deer during the year.
We have a very high limit we can take each year. And compared to KY I would think we would at least blow them out of the water!
Unless?????? They also include every lifetime license that was purchased since they were available. For example my son. He is 2. Had a license for 2 years and never shot a deer! (and just guessing but he probably will have 0 deer over the next 6 or so years as well)
And for the older hunters that purchased a lifetime and are no longer able to hunt? I wonder if they include these numbers in the estimate.
