|(a) At the request of a landowner, the department may,
based on evaluations of habitat and population, issue antlerless mule
deer hunting permits for a specific tract of land.
(b) No antlerless mule deer hunting permit is required
for mule deer killed during an archery-only open season in a county
for which the bag limit during an archery-only season is designated
as either sex.
(c) The annual and county bag limits for antlerless
mule deer do not apply on a property for which a permit under this
section has been issued, provided a valid, unused permit is possessed
for each antlerless mule deer harvested on the property.
(d) A permit issued under this section is valid during
any open season for mule deer on the property for which it was issued;
however, during an archery-only open season, antlerless mule deer
may be taken only by means of lawful archery equipment and crossbow.
