yep we got 3 different seasons down here in tennessee. we start with bow then go muzzleloader/bow then go bow/muzzleloader or gun. then after the first part of the season we go back to muzzleloader for a week, hit muzzleloader/bow for another week and then all 3 again to finish out the season. needless to say we usually get to hunt prob 7 weeks out of each season with a rifle.

wow first we have our bow season for 2.5 months then we have our gun season and you can use any type of gun exept in the areas that are shotgun only then for a week we have our ML season then to end the whole deal we got bow season for another month. So we can hunt for a total of3.5 months.
