The whitetail deer is the principal big game hunted in Nova Scotia. Our whitetail deer are big bodied with dressed weights that may run from 180-260 lbs with heads scoring in the average of 120′s to 130′s. Several Boone and Crocket deer are taken each year.

The season runs as follows:

Deer Primitive: Bow:  Second Monday in September- Second Saturday in December
Deer Primitive: Crossbow, Smooth Bore Muzzle Loader:  Fourth Monday in September- Second Saturday in December
Deer Rifle: Last Friday in October – First Saturday in December

The province is broken up into 12 zones. You will hunting in zones 107, 108 and 109.

Hunting is done from ladder, climbing and lock-on stands along with some ground blinds, and your safety harness must be worn at all times while in the stand. Here at Farmland Outfitters, the areas in which we hunt for Deer are monitored by trail cameras.
