Default Deer allowed per season??

Just wondering what the tag limits are per season in the different states?

In New Hampshire we have the following:

Muzzleloader - Oct 29th - Nov 8 - 1 Deer (1 Day for Doe) (Counts as Firearm tag)
FireArm Season is Nov 9th to Dec 5th - 1 Deer Allowed (only 2 days for Does)
Bow Season is Sept 15 - Dec 15 - 1 Deer (Any)

So if you Hunt both Bow and Firearm you can take a max of 2 deer.

Reason I ask is I see people with 4, 5, 6 kills per season and wonder how other states run the seasons.

Thanks!

I think in NJ if you take advantage of all the seasons and permits, you can get in the 20's. I know you can get 2 with a bow, 2 extended bow, 2 winterbow, 2 blackpowder, 2 gun season (1 week buck season) and then there are zones where you can shoot lots of does during a permit shotgun season and I think also with a bow. I usually stop at 3 or 4 once the freezer is full so I don't know what the max is!

Indiana allows one buck , and a variable number of does which depends on what county you're hunting in .

Example: My county , Harrison , has an antlerless bag limit of four , but since it's designated a "reduction county" after you take those four does you can get a coupon for a half price doe tag and keep hunting . Harrison's reduction doe limit is eight , four bonus antlerless and then four reduction tags at half price . Crawford county next door to Harrison only allows one bonus doe and is not a reduction county . Then there's the park reduction and military refuge hunts , which also don't count against the annual bag limit .

PA varies by zones.

Here we get one buck, regardless of weapon or season that we take it in. Then depending on zones you can get anywhere from 1 to unlimited doe tags. I had 5 doe tags this year, for 2 different zones.

NY

1 Buck during regular (firearms) season
2antlerless tags if you get them (its a lottery system)
You can have 2antlerless tags signed over to you from another hunter.
Bow/Muzzleloader 1 Antlerless tag and 1 either sex tag

Your buck tag for regular season can be use to take a doe in the late bow/muzzleloader season
Antlerless tags can be used during all seasons

Antlerless tags are only good for the specified area.
