Indiana Deer Firearms Hunting Season Opens Saturday

The firearms deer hunting season gets underway Saturday in Indiana.

It’s estimated that at least a quarter-million Hoosiers will take part in firearms season, which runs from Saturday through December 1st.

Hunters are required to have a valid deer license unless otherwise exempt.

Deer licenses can be purchased at, at many DNR-managed properties, and at hundreds of retail outlets across the state.

A deer firearms license costs $24 for Indiana residents, $150 for non-residents.

A firearms license allows a hunter to take one antlered deer with a legal firearm.

A bonus antlerless license is needed to take antlerless deer during firearms season.

Bonus antlerless county quotas are set for each of Indiana’s 92 counties.
