It’s what you’ve been waiting for – deer firearms season opens Nov. 13 and runs through Nov. 28.
Remember, the deer firearms license allows a hunter to take one buck.
Hunters can harvest an antlerless deer with a firearm during this season if they possess a deer bundle license, bonus antlerless license, deer reduction zone license (in a deer reduction zone), resident youth consolidated hunting and trapping license, or comprehensive lifetime hunting license.
Antlerless deer taken with a firearm during firearms season would count toward the bonus antlerless quota, unless you are hunting in a deer reduction zone with the appropriate license and count the deer toward the deer reduction zone bag limit. Bonus antlerless deer cannot be taken on all DNR properties; find information about restrictions.
Bonus antlerless deer cannot be taken in Benton or Tipton counties until Nov. 25.
Firearms regulations differ from public land to private land – be sure to read through these before venturing out.
