bow season is still going on until jan 15 according to MDC website.

a friend told me that he thought that only does could be shot with a bow now. is that correct?

i specifically want to know is it legal to shot a buck with a bow from now until jan 15 or is it antlerless only?

thanks!

That's fine, never hurt my feelings one bit to be blamed for a kid getting a buck, there's more than one mother with a deer head hanging on her wall after they hunted with me. So long as they don't get my address I'm ok :2thumbsup:

Here's the specifics

Late youth portion:
Youth can take deer according to the permits they hold, however:
Each youth hunter may take only one antlered deer during the entire firearms deer season. So if the youth has already taken one antlered deer during one of the other portions of the firearms deer season, he or she may not take another during this portion.
Youth hunters may purchase any number of permits to take antlerless deer, but some county restrictions apply. See map.

I think Bob's friend has it out for him. Do you hunt the same land? Maybe he just wants to hunt the bucks while you think you're stuck with the does.

No, you are only allowed to take one antlered deer after the rifle season. So if you are like me, and have both of your any deer tags left, you can use only one of them on a buck.

You have it backwards...You can take only 1 antlered deer before rifle season, but can take two bucks after rifle season.

yeah, I'm pretty sure you can shoot both deer in the same day Ryan.

Not true, If you have both of your archery "any deer" tags you may take both bucks after the rifle season. I have not read anywhere that says you can't take both in the same day.

Wrong...

You can kill both of your archery bucks after the season, or one before and one after. You can NOT however take two in the same day after the season.

If you've got both any deer tags left, fill em both. Just don't do it on the same day.
