if we have bought a tag for deer/doe and dont get anything can we use the same tag for archery season?

Provide as many specifics as you can to help better answer your question. Please omit personal information in this area.

Answer

Tricky question.  Most of our doe hunts are controlled.  If you drew a controlled hunt for doe deer you cannot use it in any other hunt.

If you purchased a general deer tag you can use it in general any weapon seasons and general archery only seasons (archery permit required when hunting in an archery only season).  Pay particular attention to the species; for instance, the white-tailed deer tag is valid for white-tailed deer only.
