DEC announces deer season
The scheduled mid-September antlerless deer season for certain wildlife management units has been approved and will run from September 11th to September 19th 3M, 3R, 8A, 8F, 8G, 8J, 8N, 9A and 9F. Archers can also hunt in WMUs 1C, 3S, 4J and 8C. For special hunting, hunting licenses and program stamps may only be used for this new license year to support deer keeping.
The daily hunting times for this season (and with the new change) are from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. Hunters must wear a fluorescent orange or pink hat or vest when hunting deer (another change). This also allows junior 12- and 13-year-olds to hunt if the county passes new local law allowing them to hunt with firearms with a mentor.
