between archery and rifle season you can hunt deer for 2 and a half months in Montana, and if you get a late season tag or a damage hunt tag the it extends it to 3 to 4 months.

Pyro,
 
If you want to fight the mosquitos and the floridians, our season comes in for bucks only on Aug. 15th.  I never hunt that early but plenty of people do.  The doe season comes in on 15 Sept. with various either-sex days throughout the rest of the season (it goes out on 1 Jan.).  I usually hunt after the first cool snap (cool snap = low temp in the 50's) and even then I won't go without  a thermacell.  I hate to say it, but that long deer season keeps our deer smaller than most. Apologies to my fellow carolinians.

Since Alabama is near the top of the list in terms of deer population, it just goes to show that it doesn't matter what the limit is, if the deer have plenty of places to hide, they will, and a good portion of the deer population is smart enough to evade hunters.
 
The deer season in Texas lasts for 3 months (if you bowhunt) -- Oct (bow season), Nov, and Dec.  In some counties, the season extends a couple weeks into Jan.

It only changed to 3 buck rule last year before that you could take 1 Buck/ 1 Doe a day ALL season long. Ted is correct the deer herd in parts of the state are WAY out of balance for the amount of forage able to sustain them. Here in north Shelby Co. we are overrun with deer, come mid winter I'll be loosing shrubbery to the herd in Oak Mountain State Park.  Funny thing about non-hunted deer herds, they'll stand on your front porch an eat the flowers out of your wifes flower pots. (ask me how I know!!)  The wife wants me to hunt in the front yard, my nieghbors might get more than a little upset so I don't.  I have had them(the Deer) stand in the flowerbed by my mailbox as I back my truck out the driveway looking at me like a cow would a farmer. LOL   If they only knew what was going thru my mind.

I live in Zone 6 (southern SC) no limit on the deer you take, except the youth hunt at the end of the season which is two of either sex.  You can buy the doe tags too.

I hunt zone A here in California and it's seven weeks long, add a month if you bow hunt. Two deer (buck) tags max. You can buy one tag in one zone and the second for separate zone. We have drawings for some zones. The buck has to have a minimum of one fork on one side.

im surprised we have any deer left here, the last like 5 years they have set a new record or replaced a top 5 record for most deer harvested in a season, im thinking that every year for the last 5 years they have topped the 200000 mark every year. and it doesnt seem like it puts a dent in them.

Blueboy, Stop by and get a new book this year. My buddy's have been hunting since August 15th and gun since Sept.1 down in Clarenton county. My season came in Sept 1 for archery and gun starts Sept 15th.
 
My area the 5 buck limit has been changed to unlimited bucks...........while doe days got cut back. Whacko 
DNR sent my doe tag form to me and it's 2 or 4 tags ($10 or $20).
 
Your area may be different or may have changed like ours did.
 
Anyway..........the long season here is fun but the deer get real educated about half way through it . Late season is usually a little tough !
 
I am origanlly from Alabama and yes...........there are a ton of deer there ,just like here in SC. A ton of deer can be killed and you will still see more next year. My processor takes in close to 100 deer a day on good days here .................and there will be that many again next year and the year after. It's really kind of amazing how many are out there..........it's nothing some times to see 8-15 deer come out on a hunt. I have been places in Alabama and seen 30-40 deer come out in a field close to dark.

CBM, They changed alot of times this year, I am in Game zone 2, we have a 1000 acres in Union county. We have game cameras out and we are not seeing the amout of doe's and fawns this year as last year. I talked to a DNR guy and he told me coyote's are the problem with the fawn's, last year they had a 30% survial rate on fawn's. Guess I will have to learn how to hunt those coyote's. Lot of big bucks this year.

Really ?? Interesting......I have not heard anything about the doe count being down. Good luck man............I went and checked my stands yesterday and they are killing them. I am going to wait till the cooler weather get's here next week and decide if I am going to my bow stand or gun stand first !! Hopefully my tags will be here this week !

In Virginia you can deer hunt from early october until first weekend in january...that includes bow, muzzleloader, rifle and late muzzleloader.  Some parts of the state have a 7 week firearms (rifle) deer season.

You must have a smaller poacher population than around my area. Deer here are skittish all year, because they don't know there is a "season". A friend told me about a cousin he had not seen in years who invited him to come over and visit after they ran into each other at a local hardware store. He decided to go by on the way to work one morning. Drove up to the cousin's house to find 8 deer hanging from the front porch rafters... IN JULY. Just a normal night's hunt for those 'good ole boys". Sonny said he drove off without even getting out to say hello.

In Louisiana, Bow season starts Oct. 1st (statewide) and runs thru Feb. 15th in zone 6. Rifle season starts Nov. 15th and runs thru Jan. 18th. We are allowed to turn the hounds loose Dec. 6th thru Jan. 18th. 3 bucks and 3 does are your season limit
Private lands enrolled in deer managemnt programs are given doe tags, depending on acreage enrolled, which DO NOT count against your season limit.
I LOVE our long and liberal season.

In Nebraska, archery starts Sept. 15th and runs until rifle season starts, which is the closest Sat to Nov 13th. Rifle lasts for 9 days... from the Sat thru the following Sunday. Archery then starts back up on Monday and I think runs thru Dec.  Muzzleloader season is the whole month of Dec.  There is usually a late season hunt of some sort in Jan.  Residents are allowed to have 2 permits that allow you to take a Buck.  You don't have to take a buck, but you can't shoot more than 2... this would include all forms of hunting.  So if you buy a buck permit for archery and a buck permit for firearm, you could NOT obtain a buck permit for muzzleloader.  Not sure how many doe only permits you can get, but I think its quite a few.
