Hi 4corn…that's a clever name.
Tell us about yourself.
That's a great first question, far better than when someone asks where to apply on their first post.
The general deer tags are good for a region. Within the region are specific units. Some units allow hunting during certain dates with the "general" tag, and different dates with the "limited" tag.
For example, I hunted a unit like that a few years ago. For that specific unit, the general license could hunt until October 14, then the limited tag was good from October 15-31 with the last few days catching some migrating, pre-rut deer. The limited license had far fewer hunters and was a much higher quality hunt.
