Special opportunity for young hunters
If you’re 18 years old or younger on Aug. 20, you might have some extra hunting waiting for you this fall.
If you obtain a general muzzleloader or general any legal weapon deer permit, you may also use archery tackle to archery hunt on open units statewide from Aug. 20–Sept. 16. If you haven’t taken a deer by the time the archery season is over, you may hunt during the general muzzleloader and general any legal weapon deer seasons in the region printed on your permit, using the appropriate equipment.
Please remember that if you hunt on one of the four units with restricted season dates, you will have five days to hunt during the general muzzleloader and general any legal weapon deer seasons. The units and restricted dates are listed in the General-season dates footnote on page 6.
If you obtain a general archery buck deer permit, you may hunt ONLY during the general archery deer season and the extended archery seasons. You may not hunt during the general muzzleloader or general any legal weapon seasons.
For more information, please call the nearest Division office.
