DEER REGULATIONS, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Indiana Hunting and Trapping Guide The urban deer zone season is Sept. 15, 2014 through Jan. 31, 2015. The bag limit for the urban zones is four deer, of which only one can be antlered. Individuals hunting in a designated urban deer zone who are attempting to satisfy the urban deer zone bag limit must harvest an antlerless deer before harvesting an antlered deer (a.k.a. earn-a-buck).
"The native plants are tramped down, the bushes are gnawed, and my three-year-old grandson can't play in the back yard because of the deer droppings. If humans entered our property and exacted such a toll we would have legal recourse We're watching the curb appeal and property value decline at a time when our taxes are rising. We are without defense."
