In NH you get one tag for rifle/muzzleloader and one for archery. Depending on the zone your in depends on if your rifle tag is for a buck or any deer. I try to fill one each year.

In GA you get a total of twelve "tags". Ten are for antlerless(however you read that), and two for antlered(with restrictions). Actually this year they are no longer true tags, just a cheesy printed sheet with 12 blanks to be filled in for your kills.

I usually buy Zero. However I kill at least one deer each year. In Indiana, you don't have to buy tags if you are a resident and hunting deer on you rown land.

In Maine you get 1 buck tag and can apply for an any deer permit. If drawn you still get one deer, but can choose buck or doe. That's for firearms hunting, if archery hunting, you can shoot any deer, but only one, unless you are hunting an expanded archery zone where you can buy additional tags.

We have no limit on antlerless. I kill 12-17 deer per year all bow kills. They are all eaten no waste.
Farmers call me and request I hunt on their farms.

In PA when you get your license you get a buck tag for rifle, archery or muzzloader. Then you have to send in for a doe tage, $6.75 i believe. I usually will only fill one of those tags.

BioGuy,

GA has the "Hunters For the Hungry" program, in which you can drop off field dressed deer at 15 different deer processors. When you drop a deer off, you are entered in a raffle for a deer rifle this year sponsored by the GA Wildlife Federation. Last year almost 30,000 lbs. of meat was donated.

In most counties in Alabama you are allowed three bucks per season and can take two anterless deer per day starting in bow season, Oct. 15, and running till the end of gun season Jan. 31st. Personally, I think that's a tiny bit excessive, but they never ask me when they set the bag limits. No tags required.

In NB,CA only the bottom half of the privince is open to whitetail deer hunting.As a resident if you buy a deer license over the counter it is for 1 buck only.We have a lotto draw for an antlerless deer tag, and if your lucky enough to get drawn, it is an either sex tag, but you can still only harvest 1 deer during the season.
We have very low deer densities here, but our northern bucks are huge bodied deer.Every year bucks that weigh up to 300lbs are tagged by hunters here.My biggest was a thick 10point that dressed out at a little over 260lbs.

4(2 buck/2 doe,4 doe archery only).
I try to use them all up ! We make "summer saug.) out of the bigger deer, some "jerky" smoke the hams and grill the "straps".
I have hunted in "bonus" tag areas and have donated the meat(processed) to the Hunters for the Hungry program here in Ark. too.

As the south Georgia Redneck said we get so many tags an individual could run thier own venison donation program! I don't know what my wife and I could do with 24 deer...

P.S.

I was reading the GA regs last season. The DNR stated that along with the liberal supply of "tags" if one took advantage of WMA hunts that issue "free" tags which do not count against your license you could kill over 50 deer legally in a season with a some effort and lots of hunting!
