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.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
