How long do those seasons stay open? It will be over 2 months before archery deer takes place here, and another 2 months after that for rifle Brick Wall,)

In NJ we have almost 6 months to hunt. Begining of Sept with the bow and it doesn't finish until the end of Feb with shotgun. We get alot of days to hunt. Unlimited does and 6 bucks during the year.
I think South Carolina has more deer per square mile than any other state. What are the bag limits there?

The regulations for the county I hunt in:

Archery: Aug 15 - Dec 14 bucks only with antlerless days sprinkled in . There is no limit on bucks and 2 antlerless per day on either sex days.

Gun: Sept 1 - Jan 1 bucks only with antlerless days sprinkled in. There is no limit on bucks and 2 antlerless per day on either sex days.

You can buy up to 4 antlerless tags to use anytime.

It is very, very hot in the early season with lots of mosquetos.

Why don't they allow more antlerless permits in SC if the deer population is so far out of whack. That doesn't make much sense Think

There is approx. 30 either sex days for archery and approx. 17 for gun season. That could possibly equal 60 deer and 34 deer if you chose to do so.

It doesn't make sense the way they have it. I think more of the problem is that most of the people I run into or know only shoot bucks no matter what the size. They don't even think about shooting a doe. You don't have to check your deer or register them either.

I know here in KS you are allowed 1 buck only, throughout all seasons. And at one point you could shoot up to 6 does. If there is population problem it only makes sense to shoot more does. For each doe you're shooting your eliminating her and her offspring, usually twins and some times triplets. Unlimited bucks just keeps the quality of bucks low. Wow Brick Wall,)

September 1st in Kentucky and then the 23rd in Tennessee.

I can remember when it was Oct 1st in both states. It made more sense. September it too hot to be hunting with a bow not to mention these mountains are too thick to see. Loose a deer for a few hours, and it's rurnt by the time you find it.
