Deer Season | 1.800.872.0222
The beginning of deer season is a celebrated time of year for hunters across the United States and the world. Deer season is the time of year in which the hunting of deer is allowed. Deer season dates vary from state to state and even in some states by county to county. The best way to determine when deer season is in your area is to either check online or to call your local fish and wildlife office.
Deer season typically takes place during the fall and winter months. As such, many families will look at deer season as a tradition to participate in around Thanksgiving and Christmas. The reason deer season occurs in the fall and winter months is simple. Deer are much more active during the winter months. Deer are more active during the winter because of mating practices and also because, many are on the move for migration to warmer weather. As such, deer season during the fall and winter is one of the easier times to see deer on the move.
Deer season is not an open invitation to hunt deer at all times with no restrictions. Although restrictions vary state to state, there are some more common restrictions that are in place during the season. First, the type of weapon you may use will vary during the course of deer season. For example, you may only be able to use a bow and arrow during certain months. Second, the use of hunting dogs is often restricted during certain times of deer season.
