August is a great time for hunting! There are several hunting seasons open during this month, depending on the type of game and the region. Early Archery and Fall Archery are two of the most popular hunting seasons in August, with October Fall Youth Hunt and Raven also available. In general, hunting season is open from August 1 to March 31 on both public and private land. During these months, hunters can pursue white-tailed deer during regular and archery seasons, as well as muzzle-loading season.
If you're planning a trip or vacation, you can find out the dates of the season on the Future Big Game Hunting Seasons page. To determine what hunting implements are allowed in your area, check out Legal Big Game Hunting Implements. Crows can be hunted on Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and Independence Day; except when these days fall on a Sunday.
Additionally, possum, porcupine, weasel, red squirrel, skunk, ground squirrel, groundhog, Russian wild boar, wild pigeons, starlings, and house sparrows can be caught year-round with a valid Michigan hunting license. The muzzle magazine season starts in October and ends in November while the rifle season starts in October and ends in November. Farmyard farmyard game birds can be caught in licensed game reserves from September 1 to April 30, including Sundays. Moving to a different county within the same deer hunting unit does not increase the hunter's bag limit.
Baggage limits, special seasons, and hunting regulations for Virginia hunting seasons vary by animal and season.
