Not as crazy as Indiana.

Bonus antlerless deer bag limits are set on a county by county basis. Keep that in the back of your mind....

Archery season: 2 does or one buck and one doe
Firearms season: One antlered deer if one was not shot in archery season plus 4 bonus antlerless deer
Muzzleloader season: One antlered deer if one was not shot earlier and one antlerless deer, plus any bonus antlerless deer that weren’t shot during firearms season
Special bonus antlerless season: Whatever bonus antlerless deer that you have not shot already.

So, in this county I can legally shoot 7 does and one buck.
If I go to a different county I can legally shoot as many bonus antlerless deer that is allowed in that county. So theoretically I could legally shoot another 344 antlerless deer in this state in addition to what I can legally shoot in my county.


I'm glad I'm old, have a lifetime Fishing/Hunting license, only hunt on my own property, and usually want just one antlerless per year.

Our regulations are so complicated I don't know how anybody can figure them out.

Below is a sample of part of our deer hunting regulations. But, our county is one with CWD, so we have a whole bunch of extra hunting days. Just try to make sense of the alphabet-soup of hunting license classes.

I just lucked into getting a Class XS lifetime license, which seems to give me lots of extra hunting, trapping, and fishing privileges -- until I get questioned by a young game warden who has absolutely no idea what my license privileges give me!

Resident Landowner Privileges

landowner privileges on page 9.
A resident landowner hunting on his/her own land without
a license can take the same number of deer as a licensed
hunter. A hunter (licensee or landowner) cannot take more
than the number of deer allowed in the respective seasons.
After killing a deer as a landowner, a person cannot take
another deer by use of a license for which the privilege has
already been used.

WOW, that makes Indiana look easy.

I bought a lifetime hunting and fishing license when it was available. It covers ALL licenses and stamps for hunting and fishing, and ALL future licenses and stamps for hunting and fishing, even if I move out of state, it is still valid in Indiana.

In Indiana counties with 4 bonus does, one can actually take 8 deer if taken like this:

Archery - 2 does
firearm - 1 buck and 4 does
muzzleloader - 1 doe

I confirmed this a few tear back by email with the DNR before taking the 8th deer on my place. The 4 bonus does can be taken any time as long as the buck is not taken during archery or muzzle loader.
