Extended archery and crossbow seasons summary

PLEASE NOTE: Deer harvested during the extended archery and crossbow seasons are already included in the archery and crossbow season summaries reported above.

The extended archery and crossbow seasons are offered only in annually-selected Farmland Zone deer management units from January 6, 2020 through January 31, 2020. This data does NOT include deer registered in any metro sub-units; all metro sub-units are open annually for archery and crossbow hunting through January 31, 2020, independent of whether or not that deer management unit offered extended archery and crossbow seasons.
