A change in the 2005-06 Game Code allows bow hunters in Earn-A-Buck
(EAB) zones only (zones 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 36, 41, 49, 50
and 51) to fulfill the Permit Bow season's "antlered deer first"
requirement during the regular Fall Bow season. The "Bank-A-Doe Program"
allows bow hunters to harvest an antlered deer first during the Permit
Bow season in an Earn-A-Buck zone if they have harvested two antlerless
deer from any Earn-A-Buck zone during the Fall Bow season.
There are specific regulations and procedures pertaining to the
Bank-A-Doe program, such as checking deer only at specified check
stations, and it applies only to Earn-A-Buck zones. For more information
