Outdoors letter: Reader responds to letter saying Kansas deer season is too long

Topeka Capital-Journal
A Topeka Capital-Journal reader disagrees with a recently submitted Letter to the Editor saying the Kansas deer season is too long.

This is in regards to the Outdoors letter,  

Hunters don't just want to shoot bucks, the hunters in our family including myself want to harvest does as well. We use the meat all year long and we just don't shoot anything that walks by.

I also don't believe that by having the season go into January is too long, sometimes it takes almost the whole season to fill your tag.

As for the comment about creating opportunities for hunters to shoot more than one buck, if it still has antlers that is called poaching and not hunting.

The deer season has many different types of restrictions during the September through January hunt, Archery was 9/14/20 to 12/31/20, Muzzleloader was 9/14/20 to 9/27/20, Anterless-only was 10/10/20 to 10/12/20 and Regular Firearm was 12/2/20 to 12/13/20 with the Extended season being in January with different Units with different dates.
