09/13/12 The last thing deer hunters want to worry about is if they have the right license for the right deer season.

The new deer license bundle makes such worries a thing of the past. With it, one license can be used in multiple seasons. The bundle can be used in youth, archery, firearms, muzzleloader, and special antlerless seasons, and allows for the harvest of one antlered and two antlerless deer total. All legal equipment that can be used in these seasons may be used with the deer bundle, including crossbows.

Cost is $65 for residents, $295 for non-residents, and $65 for non-resident youth.

“The deer bundle is a great alternative to buying multiple licenses for multiple seasons,” said Michelle Cain, DNR wildlife information specialist. “It saves hunters money and makes hunting easier for those who enjoy many equipment types for deer hunting.”

There are some limitations. The bundle cannot be used to satisfy urban deer zone bag limits. Also, the bundle cannot be used to take bonus antlerless deer on a DNR property during the special antlerless deer season nor during any regular deer season, except where authorized. See the Indiana Hunting and Trapping Guide or contact the DNR property you wish to hunt for exceptions.

The bundle can be purchased at indianaoutdoor.IN.gov or at any Indiana Outdoor license retailer. For answers to frequently asked questions about deer hunting, see hunting.IN.gov/7389.htm.
