Re: Flintlock season bag limit???
The only thing different with flintlock season is that you may choose to use your antlered deer tag (which says "antlered deer or flintlock tag" on it) for an antlerless deer, and you may do so anywhere, statewide. That may ONLY be done with a flintlock and during late flintlock season. Not with a bow in late archery, not with a flintlock any other time...only with a flintlock, and only in the late flintlock-only season.
Other than that, all other rules are the same as they are for the rest of the deer seasons. One buck, if you haven't used your buck tag already, and one doe per antlerless permit you have, and only in the specified WMU for each permit.
So, for example, I have used my buck tag this year, so I may hunt with my flintlock in WMU 5C, where I have a few antlerless tag. I may NOT hunt with my flintlock, nor my bow, in ANY other WMU, as I have no valid deer tag outside of WMU 5C.
If I had not used my buck tag, I could hunt with my flintlock anywhere in the state, and shoot either a buck or a doe.
