When does your deer season end?

Here in Michigan, our last whitetail season ends on January 1st.  I know a lot of other states go into January which makes me a little jealous.

end of season

Here in Tennessee we have a split gun season with a two week hiatus in the middle, about 5 weeks total. It ends on the 9th of January this year. In Kentucky we still have a week long late M/L season left, from 11-19 Dec and bow ends finally on 16 Jan, I believe.

The eastern part of NC has a

The eastern part of NC has a gun season from Oct 16 until Jan 1.
I, too, am jealous of the states with hunting season extending past the New Year and some into Feb.
I hunt as much as I can but I would welcome another month of hunting if it were possible.
Cscott, I'm jealous you guys get to hunt during a time when it's likely to snow. Although it snowed yesterday, it is a very rare occassion for us to get snow, much less to get it while hunting season is in.

In New York state the season ends in late December. The regular rifle season is followed by a week of late muzzle loader hunting most years too.
