Deer Firearms Season Begins Nov. 14, Free Youth Hunting Days

Firearm season runs until November 29, and during this time there will be two days in which youth hunters will be able to hunt for free.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The deer firearm season will begin on November 14.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is reminding hunters that they are only allowed to take one buck with a firearms license. Hunters can harvest an antlerless deer during the firearms season with a firearm if they possess a deer bundle license, or comprehensive lifetime hunting license.

All antlerless deer taken with a firearm during the firearms season would count toward the bonus antlerless quota unless you are in a deer reduction zone with the appropriate license and count the deer toward the deer reduction zone bad limit.

Firearm season runs until November 29, and during this time there will be two days in which youth hunters will be able to hunt for free.

On November 28 and 29, youth can harvest a deer, try waterfowl hunting, or take to the fields or forest in search of other game.

All youth must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 18 years of age, who has a valid adult hunting license. During free youth hunting days, resident youth and nonresident youth do not need a State migratory waterfowl stamp, or a Harvest Information Program (HIP) number to hunt waterfowl or other migratory birds. All persons 16 years old or older must possess a federal duck stamp.

If all of this seems like a great time to you, but you are still needing to purchase your hunting license you can do so here to get started with your hunting adventures here.

Once you have gotten the best deer, you can show it off it all of WIKI country on our Deer of the Day page, you may also win a $100 gift certificate to The Rusty Buck in Versailles. More information and contest details can be found here.
