    Who wants to school a noob on deer reduction zones?

    Ok, so I'm only a few seasons old when it comes to hunting. My friend happens to have about 20acres in a deer reduction zone. When I told him I was going to renew my lic he told me to get the reduction lic as well so I could take advantage of his location....

    Now here's the problem.....

    None of us know how that works.

    Can one of you folks explain it like I'm 5?

    Thanks!!

    So I guess where I'm failing is. Reduction zone hunting starts in Sept we'll before normal seasons. Can I use firearms, muzzleloader,bow? What's the requirements?

    Legal Firearms are allowed Nov. 14 to Jan. 31. Archery is allowed the whole reduction zone season.
    Never argue with stupid people.

    I like the reduction zone hunting. Then again, I have my lifetime license. I don't have to keep buying tags when I fill one. If you like antler, you can earn a second buck in addition to your regular deer license. Meaning, in reduction zone, you have to first harvest an antlerless deer before tagging the antlered deer. with your RZ license. (you can still fill your regular deer license in a reduction zone, with the proper licensing) I am allowed to take the antlerless then immediately take a buck traveling with. I tend to think most people wouldn't go to the woods with both of those tags. I like that the season is extended until mid-January for the RZ's. Season also comes in early for bow hunting, but I don't like to harvest a deer in warm/hot temperatures, so that means little to me. I, and my family, can eat 3-5 deer a year, and none goes to waste. I let a lot of deer walk by me in RZ even if I went out for the original purpose to take a deer. In short, RZ is just another opportunity to get out and see/harvest food for your family. or antlers, if that is your thing.
