The 2024 annual bow hunting season (bow and arrow only, no crossbows) is coming up in September. Designed to manage the deer herd and to ensure the herd’s health, The Nature Conservancy allows bow hunting for white-tailed deer in the Nags Head Woods Preserve. The regular hunting season runs September 9, 2023 through January 1, 2024.
