Our season is from August 15th to Jan. 1st. We have 14 antler less days where we can kill two antler less deer and all the bucks we can. We can also purchase 4 additional doe tags for the weekdays, since all of the antler less days are on Saturdays and the last day of the season. There are no limits on bucks, and no specific seasons in most of the state for the different choice of weapons used. We can hunt with rifle, shotgun, bow, cross bow, spear, or bowie the entire season. Theoretically if a hunter were to kill only one buck per each day of the season, four does with his optional tags, and two does on every antler less day, he could actually kill a total of 172 deer per season and that's if he doesn't hunt on a Quality Deer Management farm or plantation where landowner tags can be used for antler less deer.
I've had years when I've killed twenty or more deer in a season, including days when I've killed four bucks running together, and often two does running together in front of the hounds. I've had a few times where I've killed three deer running together and even one instance when I was still hunting with a rifle and sitting on my 4-wheeler shooting a Winchester model 70 .270. That day was a month after my first series of strokes and it was like a shooting gallery at a fair as I shot one, bolted the rifle, shot the second, bolted again, and then shot the third one. By now it should be fairly obvious that we have a very large and healthy deer herd in this portion of the state. Which is why we can run deer with dogs, and bait to draw 'em out of the swamps.
I would point out that I donate venison to several individuals since we don't have any type of hunters feeding the hungry program in this area. Also, I have a 16 year old step grandson that I've raised since he was 3 months old; being on disability we depend on venison for at least 80% of our meat.
