I answered this question earlier and said it ended February the 6th. That was the actual hunting season. As far as "Deer Season" itself, it never ends for my son and myself. Deer season is a year round experience for us.
Here in Washington, we have several seasons, as do most other states. We have what's called an early high country buck hunt that opens sometime in August. Then the general archery season opens around the first of September. Between archery and rifle, we have a muzzle loading season. Then in the middle of October, the modern rifle season opens and runs for 10 days. In November, we have another archery and muzzle loading season. I think we're about done the beginning of December.
We are allowed one deer per year with the exception of one unit that now offers a second doe tag. If you draw that tag, you have to buy two complete licenses and tags, but you can shoot one of each. Years ago, we could hunt each of the weapon seasons but that changed to a "choose your weapon" a long time ago.
My son lives in Maryland and his season runs from the beginning of September through most of January and he can take as many does as he wants and two bucks. Must be nice.
First make sure your gun is safe, remove the bolt and clean your barrel from the chamber to the end of muzzle. Clean the barrel using butchers bore shine until a patch comes out white. Run a total of 5 separate patches soaked with denatured alcohol through the bore and let dry for 30 minutes. Insert a cleaning rod with a jag and a dry patch into the neck of the chamber. Make sure it will stay there through the next process. Now using another cleaning rod, install a patch that has been coated...
