Question How many bucks?

How many bucks, non-MLD, can a person legally shoot state wide in one season?

I'm thinking 3?

Too bad you couldn't kill 2 bucks in same county over 13" if they were on different properties. Some folks have several places in the same county.

I hunt in falls county and you can shoot one buck outside the antlers and one buck with an unbranched antler/spike. the doe season is only a weekend long over thanksgiving. I wish they would make the doe season opening weekend to cut down on any does that may have already been bred. But it depends on the county to answer your question.

For all the overachievers, mule deer are just fancy native exotics in the great state of Texas. We donít consider them

Oh hey Charlie!

The answer can be found on your hunting license. How many buck tags do you have?

Do MLD permits typically allow more bucks?
