Deer Hunting Regulations

I would personally find it interesting to know what everyone's state hunting regulations are... and by that I mean, how many of each deer you can take in bow and/or rifle. Now I realize some of your counties in your state may be different than others when it comes to number of deer harvested being allowed, but what's it like in your county?

Missouri- 1 bow buck, 1 firearms buck, unlimited does. (unless you're down south towards the bootheel. any deer tags are $17 and doe tags are $7.

In South Dakota, we have Black Hills deer tags, West River deer tags, muzzleloader deer tags and East River deer tags. We start with a draw system and after all the draws are done if there are any tags left you can get them, limit of 5 per person. You have Black Hills BH101-valid for 1 any deer(muley or whitetail, buck or doe), BH111-valid for any whitetail(buck or doe), these are good for all 4 Black Hills deer units. Then there are the doe tags for each unit BD1,2,3 and 4. this year there were only 100 doe tags per unit to be drawn. last year there were at least 250 doe tags in each unit and the years before that there were at least 750 doe tags in each unit. I remember having 5 tags per year now I get 1.The number of Black Hills deer tags have been decreasing every year due to road hunters and taxidermists sending petitions to GF&P stating that mountain lions are decimating the herds. Which is not true. They also have been increasing the number of tags for mountain lions above the recommendations of the biologists. I have been here 6 years and have only seen 1 other hunter(not in my party of hunters) out of his vehicle and in the woods in that time and I have seen more deer every year. Sorry to have gotten on my soapbox. East and West River tags are by specific areas and or counties. you just have to know where they are and scout the areas for public land before you apply for the tags. It is complicated out here.

Tennessee is three bucks only one per day, 4 does bow season, 4 does muzzleloader, then we have additional doe days in some counties. In unit L counties it's pretty much unlimited does. I know guys that kill 30+ deer a year, legally.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.

Texas - varies by county, but typically count is for all seasons combined

My county - 1 buck 2 doe

County to the south (maybe 3 miles as the crow flies) - 2 buck, 3 doe

We have lots of hunting here for ten different species. As for deer, (though not unlimited, like some states), there are more antlerless tags available than would be necessary to fill anyone's freezer. But for bucks, you can only shoot one, and you have to choose between a muley or whitetail. This year, I've got two elk tags (one is for either sex; the other for antlerless elk). I've had years in the past when I've killed three antelope, a 5x5 muley and a 5x5 bull elk, and then just stopped hunting even though I had a couple more tags in my wallet. It was getting impossible to find anyone left who wanted the extra meat.
