(UNDATED) - Deer archery season begins Oct. 1.

You have several choices of what deer license you can purchase.

A deer bundle license can be used in all seasons (except the deer reduction zone season) and gives the hunter the privilege to harvest up to three deer (3 antlerless or 1 antlered and 2 antlerless deer). If you hunt in more than one season, this is the license deal for you.


  • $65 for Indiana residents

  • $295 for non-residents
