Shot a buck with archery equipment during gun season. Which tag do I use?  Probably on here somewhere. Just can’t find reg.

Gun Buck tag to be filled with a legal firearm. Although you can shoot a deer with a bow/ crossbow during the gun season if you have a valid archery tag.  A doe tag for a specific zone can be filled by either. And I'm sticking to it!

C'mon people.  Just read the regs each season.  It literally took 34 seconds to find the answer once the pamphlet opened up.

Sniper:  I'm pretty sure that regulation is also good through muzzleloader season, not just the 9-day gun season.  From my understanding, you can shoot a buck with your bow and use your gun buck tag as long as it's during the 9-day gun season or muzzleloader season.

You can use either your bow tag or your gun. I recommend using your gun tag since the season is shorter. Then you still have the option of filling your archers tag once gun season is over.

Very interesting. Good catch. Was not aware of those tagging options with gun deer buck tag.

I'm pretty sure you can register it with your Gun tag. A gun buck authorization tag can be filled with a bow, crossbow, or gun. You could save your archery tag. Obviously you can't fill your archery tag with a gun.

Gun Buck Deer • Valid in any unit statewide for harvesting a buck deer that has at least one antler which is 3” or longer in length. • This harvest authorization is not weapon-specific and is valid for harvesting a buck deer killed with a firearm, crossbow or vertical bow under the authority of a valid gun deer license during the November 9-day gun deer season

Archery tag. Nice job on the harvest. I found it gets really tough to get them close once the late season is upon us.
