2012 Bows-Only Seasons - Deer (No Dogs)

Bow hunters wishing to hunt antlerless deer in a WMU with a bows- only season (refer to the table below ) must apply to the antlerless deer validation tag draw in that unit.

Do not apply for an antlerless deer validation tag in a WMU with a controlled hunt unless you plan to hunt with a bow during the bows-only season. You must apply to the controlled hunt draw if you wish to hunt with a permitted firearm other than a bow during the controlled season.
