Concurrent Seasons

Statewide, properly licensed hunters may take antlered and antlerless deer throughout the 14-day Regular Firearms season.
In Wildlife Management Units where antlerless deer hunting days have been added to the season, license allocations were adjusted and fewer antlerless deer licenses may be available.
This makes it more important than ever for antlerless deer license applicants to submit their applications on schedule.
Application instructions can be found elsewhere in this section.
