Deer Forecast 2002
Hoosier deer hunters will be under a one-buck rule starting this fall, according to research biologist Zack Walker. “Hunters asked for the change to take the pressure off the buck herd,” he says. Archery-only urban deer zones around major metropolitan areas will sport extended seasons and an increased bag limit; bowhunters may tag three antlerless deer and one of either sex.
